The LogFacility? option sets the "facility" used to distinguish between different logging sources on Unix. See the syslog.conf manual page to find out how to use this to direct different log facilities to different files.

Not all log facilities are supported, as the available options vary between Unixes. The current list is LOCAL0 to LOCAL6, and DAEMON.

This option currently has no effect on Windows, as there is no comparable option. To set the application name, as reported to the Event Viewer, use the "-t" command-line option.
