Severity Parameter (Send-Syslog Cmdlet)

Importance of message.


Send-Syslog -Severity 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. Severity is a value from 0 to 7 using the following convention:

0Emergency - the system is unusable
1Alert - action must be taken immediately
2Critical - critical conditions exist
3Error - error conditions exist
4Warning - warning conditions exist
5Notice - normal but significant condition
6Informational - informative message
7Debug - debug-level messages

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