I have an application (in java) running in a Windows PC and I want to send logging messages to a syslog server running in a Linux box somewhere in the network.
The problem I have is, that it is not clear to me what should I use as facility in this case.
I.e. can I (/should I) send the logging info as one of LOCAL0-LOCAL7?
Or are they not supposed to be used by remote applications? It is not clear to me if they are usable or not.
Should I use USER instead?
Could anyone help me on this please?
