Question rsyslogd facilities and severities exhaustive lists


Hello and thank you for reading my post.

I just would like to know how to find the exhaustive lists of possible facilities and severities one can use in "/etc/rsyslog.conf".

Thank you and best regards.

...or locally: 'man 2 syslog; man 3 syslog'.

Thank you for your answers.

I have no entries in the Manual neither for "man 2 syslog" nor for "man 3 syslog" and not even for "rsyslog" or "rsyslogd".
The Manual page for "rsyslogd" ("man rsyslogd") doesn't offer such lists.

The Wiki page is better than nothing.

Best regards.

"better than nothing"? It is *EXACTLY* what you asked for.

Ok. I'm sorry.
It is just that this a Wiki and there are annotations like "Clarify"...
So you see, I thought there might be an official document somewhere in my Unix distribution (Debian Squeeze) with the list of all possible "rsyslogd" facilities.
That's all what I meant (and especially I meant no offense ).

Best regards.

that is ALL of the facilities. They are a ratified standard, RFC 5424, rsyslog can not add to them nor have different ones.

Online man pages could be used to find;
man 2 syslog
man 3 syslog
man rsyslogd

HTH!
