Notification, only with the last syslog message



Your Vote:



I want to send only the last syslog message by an e-mail message. But I find just the placeholder only for the last 20th Messages. Thank you

Dear Huxhage

That is correct, there are just placeholders for the last 20 message, mainly because of two reasons:

  • The notification is triggered only once per scanning interval, not for each syslog. Having the last 20 messages reduces the chance to miss a syslog.
  • The previous messages often provide useful context.
