Hi Gerardo, I understand what you like to sort your syslog messages by the
severity value.

With the most popular Unix syslog server it's very easy making different log
files. With Linux BSD syslog it's similar to:

*.emerg              /var/log/emerg
*.alert              /var/log/alert
...

(Don't forget to rotate this new log files with logrotate)

If you like store this fields in the log line, I only know one syslog server
to make this: nsysgld, this syslog server store a 2 char field with the
priority (number) and the facility (char)
