5.4. Setting the logging level

The ABLE console output is split into levels of importance. Only messages with a level lower than the current logging level are displayed.

The logging level is set at boot time by the console.level variable, if unset the value defaults to 6. All messages of any priority can be viewed with the sysmsg command after boot.


Setting this value to 0 will result in no output being displayed from ABLE unless a critical error occurs. However the console input will still function correctly. The console level can be dropped by using

console -s 6

This will allow what is being typed to be seen once more.
