Agent's Event Log Settings affect event type alerts?

  • Hi All,

    On the Agent->Event Log Settings I did not enable Informational events - since I want to minimize the amount of data Kaseya keeps.

    Does that prevent an Alert from working if the alert is set for Informational?

    I was hoping that my Event Log Settings would simply prevent the Informational events from being sent back to my VSA *logs* - and not interfere with alerts that are set to trigger if type is Informational...

  • As far as I know, if you don't enable the Informational events in the Event Log Settings area, you will not get alerts for them in the Event Log monitoring area. You'll actually see that the I is red in the list, instead of black like everything else, and you'll see the note at the top that says "Note: Red letters indicate logging disabled."

  • Thanks. I saw the red note - but thought "I do not care about LOGGING of Informational events - just alerting of them". Maybe they could make it clearer that because logging is disabled, alerting/alarms will not occur...
