For UDP inputs, does the raw log priority factor into LINE_BREAKER?

Influencer

If you watch the wire data via tcpdump, you will see syslog events contain the log priority at the beginning of an event:

<134>12/1/14 10:02:03.123 INFO some log info

When defining LINE_BREAKER for this log, do I need to factor in the priority, or is that stripped before that stage?

Based on my own experiments, no, do not account for the log priority identifier in angle brackets. Pretend like it's not there.
