There are two other things to look at as well..
, look for an entry /dev/console
RedHat and like often have.. kern.* /dev/console
Adjust that to kern.notice
which limits the output to notice or worse, or comment it out..
notice has a loglevel of 5
info has a loglevel of 6
debug has a loglevel of 7
(the lower the number, the more important is the message.)
2nd, there is a default console logging level setting at boot
which can be read from /etc/sysconfig/init
, usu LOGLEVEL=3
or in Debian, /etc/init.d/functions
More details from man syslog.conf
