syslog - facility

In configuring syslong, what does "facility code" do?

local1-7, etc.

Do they point where you would store the logs?

what does "level" do?

Is it how much detail you want to be logged?

    logging facilities are a way by which a syslog daemon decides to send the information it receives.
    you can configure all your routers to be a part of logging facility 5 and switches to be part of facility 4.
