- What are logs?
Logs are specified events that can be tracked and stored in a logging database.
- What are alerts?
Alerts are sent in order to draw the administrators attention to problematic gateways. These alerts are sent:
> If certain rules or attributes, which are set to be tracked as alerts, are matched by a passing connection,
> If system events, also called system alerts, are configured to trigger an alert when various predefined thresholds are surpassed.
By default an alert is sent as a pop up message to the administrator's desktop. Alerts can also be sent for certain predefined system events. If certain predefined conditions are set, you can get an alert for certain critical situation updates.

> Mail - Sends an email as defined in the options set in Alert Commands.
> SNMP Trap - Sends an SNMP alert to the SNMP GUI as defined in the options set in Alert Commands.
