To configure the scenarios for which you want to receive notifications from EventLog Analyzer, navigate to Settings > Admin Settings > General > Product Settings > Product Notifications.

The different scenarios for which you have the option of enabling or disabling alerts have been listed below:

EventLog Analyzer Upgrade

You will be notified when EventLog Analyzer has been successfully upgraded.

Unprocessed Log Files

When EventLog Analyzer is unable to process the incoming logs fast enough, the unprocessed logs will be added to files. They will be processed one after the other once EventLog Analyzer is able to process logs. You can set a limit on the number of files which get filled with unprocessed logs. You will be notified once the limit is exceeded.

In a new installation of EventLog Analyzer, default value for Unprocessed Log Files is 100.

You will be notified when EventLog Analyzer's log collector is unable to collect logs. You can configure the subject of the email which will get triggered.
