caught by "*.notice" which is why they end up in /var/log/messages.
Is there a way to prevent this happening?
You could try filtering them out of syslog like so (in your syslogd.conf):
Which should log everything for local7 except notice. See man
Almost correct but he doesn't want /var/log/messages filling up, so add
local7.none to the line that points to /var/log/messages, ie:
