There is only 2.7.3, no, at least not officially.

It sounds like your data consist of 4 counts. If so, you can easily make 
a simple bar plot with characters

Log level  Number  Plot (x = 10)
---------- ------  -----------------------------------------------------
infomation    386  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
warning        97  xxxxxxxxxx
error           5  x
critical       23  xxx

The main problem is to compute the scaling factor from the data.
You also have to decide on the rounding (I rounded up).
