    say, what are people using here ??
    Default message log level
    Log only messages more urgent than

    my log was full of dhcp, and everything else.

    what would be recommended to get enough information, but still be easy to check for issues ??
    thanks much for the time

    I have always found Syslogs to provide important information but capturing all information provides entries that you know about but aren't important because you know the cause which is not real issue. Then if you try to change the severity of what's posted, you miss important stuff. It's a no win. This is true of most products, not just ASUS. Here is my non-issue which is caused by AppleTV in sleep mode"

    Then you get entries that are as cryptic as heck.

    Probably the best solution is to log everything and send the log to another device for parsing. No I didn't do that.

    yep, i had seen that before, was good information.
    say, what are your settings ?? thanks (not sure what default was, and is more urgent than information a good compromise?)

    If that's the thing that's particularly bothering you I believe there's a menu option to hide DHCP queries.
