log alertMail

Use this command to enable or disable alert emails, and to choose which email policy to use with them. Alert emails notify administrators or other personnel when an alert condition occurs, such as a system failure or network attack.

The email address information and the alert message intervals are configured separately for each email policy. For details about the severity levels of log messages associated with an email policy, see log email-policy.

To use this command, your administrator account’s access control profile must have either w or rw permission to the loggrp area. For details, see Permissions.
