When I get a new switch, can anyone tell me what kind of messages I will be getting by default, would they be informational debugs when using console etc ?
by default no debugging is active on a device.
You can check this with sh debug.
if you mean what is the severity level for syslog messages it should be 5, by default debug messages are not sent to a syslog server but only to local buffer.
By default on console session you can see any type of message.
Hope to help
