Event handlers define what messages to extract from logs and display in Event Manager. You must enable an event handler to start generating events. To see which event handlers are enabled or disabled, see Enabling event handlers.
You can configure event handlers to generate events for a specific device, for all devices, or for the local FortiAnalyzer unit. You can create event handlers for FortiGate, FortiCarrier, FortiCache, FortiMail, FortiManager, FortiWeb, FortiSandbox devices, and syslog servers. In 5.2.0 or later, Event Manager supports local FortiAnalyzer event logs.
You can configure the system to send you alerts for event handlers. You can send the alert to an email address, SNMP community, or syslog server.
