      Description

      After upgrading to 5.3.x from 5.0, one of our prod systems ran into an issue with disk space filling up due to the flooding of the below error message into syslogs.

      {0x2aeac59d2700} ERROR: Failed to convert LogBuffer to ascii, have dropped (552) bytes 
      

      This is an unfortunate sideaffect of the fix made in TS-2940, prior to which, the defaults to error setting were not working correctly and ignoring the logging to syslog output.

      Also, should we change error defaults to "L" to ensure syslogs are not flooded with the fix from TS-2940? Below are the current defaults, which did not work correctly prior to TS-2940.

      CONFIG proxy.config.diags.output.error STRING SL
      CONFIG proxy.config.diags.output.fatal STRING SL
      CONFIG proxy.config.diags.output.emergency STRING SL
