Priority levels

When a logging severity level is defined, the FortiManager or FortiAnalyzer unit logs all messages at and above the selected severity level. For example, if you select Error, the FortiManager or FortiAnalyzer unit logs Error, Critical, Alert, and Emergency level messages.

The Debug log severity level is rarely used. Debug log messages are useful when the FortiManager or FortiAnalyzer unit is not functioning properly. Debug log messages are only generated if the log severity level is set to Debug. Debug log messages are generated by all subtypes of the event log.
