Receive email notifications

You can configure receiving notifications about availability/unavailability of network devices and endpoints.

Note

A network device is considered unavailable if it does not respond to snmp requests. An endpoint is considered unavailable if it is not detected on any monitored port (the endpoint’s mac address is not present on any monitored ports).

To configure receiving email notifications, you should:

  1. Add Device Group: Devices → Groups → Add; choose events which users should be notified about; select users who will receive notifications.
