Description

A syslog message from kea 1.1.0 looks like this:
===
Oct 3 23:12:21 server1 LOCAL0: INFO [kea-dhcp6.dhcp6] DHCP6_STARTED Kea DHCPv6 server version 1.1.0 started
===

Comparing this output to some other daemons (here sshd and nsd):
===
Oct 17 20:16:13 server1 sshd[1625]: Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 22.
Oct 17 20:17:24 server1 nsd[23259]: nsd started (NSD 4.1.7), pid 4691
===

Note how kea uses "LOCAL0" where the other daemons place the process name + pid. I think it would be good for log parsing if kea mirrored this format, maby embedding the syslog facility/level in the free text instead.
