This seems like a question that should be easy to find an answer on but anyway..
I am setting up the syslog servers and all is working but I have read a number of different places about the facility. Some done change it. Some change it to 4 some to 5, etc.
What is the function/purpose/layman's explanation of the logging facility.
Does it matter which one is used. Are there advantages to use one over others, etc.
