SMTP Notification documentation



  • I noticed that 2.0 has a SMTP notification option for specific alerts.

    Sounds like a good feature for a home setup (since I do not need a syslog server at home ;)). The only problem is that I cannot find any info in the documentation on what is considerd a notification or alert.
    When does it send an e-mail? What are considerd notifications or alerts? Any chance that I can add them manualy? Block on a specific port or ip? Send daily syslog output? Max cpu usage?

    There is no general way to do notifications (yet, in 2.0, may happen for 2.1) but for now the only things worthy of a notification are things that cause the scrolling error at the top of the GUI. Usually things that affect the system in some way: Errors loading filter rules, errors syncing to a carp slave, creating ssh keys, etc. Things that are pretty rare but critical to know about.

    For 2.1 I hope to be able to have some kind of general use for it, like disk space notifications, etc. We'll see what happens though…
