List of alert events?
Is there any comprehensive list of all the conditions in a stock pfSense installation that throws an alert? I've set up the SMTP alerting, and tried it successfully with the test function. However, I don't know what will actually produce an email. Too high CPU-temp? There is settings for what qualifies as "warning" and "critical" in the dashboard widget, but no referense to whether that throws a system alert or not. Trying to lower the warning-limit made the widget go bananas, but no mail was produced.
There is no conclusive list at the moment, but generally speaking:
- CARP Events (config sync errors, VIP state transitions, etc)
- Filter reload errors
- Gateway failures
- Corrupt config.xml
- Inability to upload a config with AutoConfigBackup
Basically, anything that makes a notice flash in the upper right, plus a few other things.
The notifications will be quite a bit more flexible in the future but probably not until after 2.2 ships.
