Dropping messages

To skip the processing of a message without sending it to a destination, create a log statement with the appropriate filters, but do not include any destination in the statement, and use the final flag.

Example: Skipping messages

The following log statement drops all debug level messages without any further processing.

   filter demo_debugfilter { level(debug); };
    log { source(s_all); filter(demo_debugfilter); flags(final); };
