Each "Log Message" in the NetVault Logs can be configured to send an alert to the system administrator. Once the configuration is made, an email alert will be sent every time the matching Log Message text occurs. Two procedures are required; one to configure the SMTP server and destination email address, the other to identify the specific log message and set an event.
