The event severities are:

                     0    Cleared
                     1    Indeterminate
                     2    Warning
                     3    Minor error
                     4    Critical
                     5    Major

Indeterminate - not Intermediate.  It means that the severity of the event is
unset.  Cleared is meant to say that it is now OK.  Like when you get an
interface up event.

As James pointed out - these severities are configurable per event by using
xnmtrap. If you are forwarding the events to TEC, the severity is translated
to a TEC event severity.
