VPN Alerts

This topic is ONLY relevant to security gateways. It is NOT relevant to managed switches.

Overview


Figure 1. Example VPN Alerts Page

The VPN Alerts page (Fig. 1) allows you to set up the selected Mako to alert you via email when the percentage change of down tunnels in a VPN Cloud exceeds a specified threshold.

VPN Alerts Form

Use the VPN Alerts form (Fig. 1) to specify the desired Change Threshold value for VPN Status Alert email messages.

Change Threshold

By default the Change Threshold field is set to “No alerts,” disabling VPN Status Alert email messages.

To enable VPN Status Alert email messages, choose a Change Threshold value from “Any” (0%) up to “100%.” Whenever the percentage change of down tunnels in a VPN Cloud exceeds this value, a VPN Status Alert email message will be sent.
