https://www.fir3net.com/UNIX/Linux/how-to-determine-the-syslog-facility-
using-tcpdump.html
Each Syslog message contains a priority value. The priority value is
enclosed within the characters < >. The priority value can be
between 0 and 191 and consists of a Facility value and a Level value.
Facility being the type of message, such as a kernel or mail message.
And level being a severity level of the message.
To calculate the priority value the following formula is used :
Priority = Facility * 8 + Level
So to determine the facility value of a syslog message we divide the
priority value by 8. The remainder is the level value.
