Allowed Values

  • all: Messages of all severity levels are logged.

  • error: The error log severity that is used for messages that provide information about errors which may force the server to shut down or operate in a significantly degraded state.

  • info: The error log severity that is used for messages that provide information about significant events within the server that are not warnings or errors.

  • none: No messages of any severity are logged by default. This value is intended to be used in conjunction with the override-severity property to define an error logger that will publish no error message beside the errors of a given category.

  • notice: The error log severity that is used for the most important informational messages (i.e., information that should almost always be logged but is not associated with a warning or error condition).

  • warning: The error log severity that is used for messages that provide information about warnings triggered during processing.
