Hi @OsamaKhan ,

 

debug log-receiver statistics might give you the info you need.

 

Syslog server uses the facility field to manage messages. For details on the facility field, see RFC 3164 (BSD format) or RFC 5424 (IETF format).

 

LOG_USER is the default and is used for generic user-level messages.

 

Cheers,
