Resolution

The default systemd logging to syslog and disk is debug. This value can be changed in /etc/systemd/journald.conf 

MaxLevelStore=debug
MaxLevelSyslog=debug

The above can be one of the following: "emerg", "alert", "crit", "err", "warning", "notice", "info", "debug" ; the value could be  e.g. 

MaxLevelStore=notice
MaxLevelSyslog=notice


After changing this value execute: systemctl restart systemd-journald 

Cause

The default systemd logging to syslog and disk is debug.
