In addition to the local log, you can send alerts using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). You can select a notification level to control the amount and the type of alerts that are sent.
If you activate SNMP or SMTP alerts and are running multiple Symantec Protection Engines, set a log bind address for each one. Separate log bind addresses let you identify the originating Symantec Protection Engine for each SNMP and SMTP alert message.
You also can activate outbreak alerts. Symantec Protection Engine can issue alerts when a specified number of the same type of threat or violation occurs in a given time interval. Outbreak alerts provide an early warning of a potential outbreak so that you can take the necessary precautions to protect your network.
