Facility Parameter (Send-Syslog Cmdlet)

Type of message to be sent.


Send-Syslog -Facility int


System log packets are composed of three main sections, each of which can be broken down into two smaller pieces.

The first section is the PRI, which contains the originating Facility and Severity of the Message. Facility is a value from 0 to 23, with each value being a different part of the system:

0Kernel messages
1User-level messages
2Mail system
3System daemons
4Security/authorization messages
5Messages generated internally by syslogd
6Line printer subsystem
7Network news subsystem
8UUCP subsystem
9Clock daemon
10Security/authorization messages
11FTP daemon
12NTP subsystem
13Log audit
14Log alert
15Clock daemon
16Local use
17Local use
18Local use
19Local use
20Local use
21Local use
22Local use
23Local use

The second section contains a timestamp and hostname, both of which are automatically generated by the cmdlet. The third section is the Message itself.
