This issue adds more detail about log levels as requested in #861.

I'm still being a bit vague in some of the descriptions (especially for debug) because I don't want to expose details about beat processing that might change over time.

Other changes:

  • Had to do a bit of refactoring of anchor IDs to add a link to the topic about command line options.
  • Removed defaults listed in to_file and to_syslog because they seemed to contradict what we say in the intro about the default logging output being platform-specific.
  • Didn't really understand what we meant by the following sentence, so I rewrote it to say what I think we mean: "In addition to the logging system, the logging output configuration can be
    modified from the command line."
