    LEM & Syslog Levels


      I'm currently trying LEM, it's successfully collecting data from my Active Directory DC's and DHCP servers. I'm now considering pointing some of our network equipment at LEM and was wondering what Syslog level I should set them at. I understand (from this video) Solarwinds recommend setting Syslog to debug, which would generate a great deal of data, however what impact is this likely to have on the performance of the devices running Syslog at debug level ?


      I'm assuming the recommendation is focused primarily on getting as much information into LEM as possible, however as with most things, it's probably a balancing act of wait of data against performance impact.


      Any guidance you can offer me would be gratefully received.
