alerting – Send Alerting Emails

Last updated March 2020

The alerting module provides the ability to send alerting emails when a script examines data. If you intend to create scripts using the scriptlet module, you must have the alerting module loaded.

It is especially important to load this module when you are using “adaptive – Adaptive Delivery”. You will not receive adaptive alerts if this module is not loaded.


The alerting module is a singleton, so it does not have an instance name. To use this module, you must also load the inbound_audit module. The following is an example configuration:

alerting {}

inbound_audit {
  monitors = ("300,6")

The following configuration options are available:


Time to live for the alerting cache. Default value is 3600 seconds.


Alerting cache size. Default value is 1048576 bytes.
