The Notifications tab allows you to create notifications to monitor a variety of alerting scenarios based on saved searches (saved search queries). You can have saved searches run automatically on regular schedules so that they send alert messages to the specified destination, when their results meet certain conditions. You can configure a variety of conditions to continuously monitor logs by getting real-time events (along with a report) delivered to your email address or to send events to the notification destinations selected.
