vRealize Log Insight provides built-in system notifications about activity related to vRealize Log Insight health, such as when disk space is almost exhausted and old log files are about to be deleted. Administrators can configure how often and where system notifications are sent.

System notifications inform you of critical issues that require immediate attention, provide you with warnings that might require a response, and inform you of normal system activity. System notifications are suspended during upgrade, but in effect at all other times.

An administrator can specify how often notifications are sent when triggered and to which email addresses. System notifications concerning vRealize Log Insight can also be sent to third-party applications.

System notifications are distinct from alert queries, which are user-defined. For more information about alert queries, see Add an Alert Query in Log Insight to Send Email Notifications.
