You can send the InfiniBox event notifications via Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).
Creating an SMTP notification target
Set an SMTP target for InfiniBox notifications. An SMTP server address is required. Optionally, you can define a new server by setting the host, port, user and password. You can also determine whether to use the secured TLS protocol.
Encrypting the notification
The notification entity can be either encrypted or not. Use the
tls parameter to encrypt the events that are sent to this target.

Testing an SMTP notification target
This command sends a test notification to an email recipient.
Creating a new SNMP notification target
Define an SNMP trap to which the InfiniBox sends events. State the name and host and then select the version of the SNMP protocol.
For SNMP versions 1 and 2c you need to define a community. For SNMP version 3 you need to define an SNMP Engine ID and a user name.
You also need to select the user-based security model among authentication and privacy, authentication without privacy and no authentication and no privacy. Optionally, you may set the authentication type, and whether to encrypt the events and a private key.
An example for setting a notification target for SNMP versions 1 and 2c:

Creating a Syslog notification target
Define a syslog notification target by providing a host and a port. You can override the default UDP protocol with TCP. You can override the default Facility local7 with any other value between local0 and local7. In the following example, a target is defined with the default protocol and facility:
