Block and NOT Alert

Is there any way of blocking an attack (threat) but not logging it?

By this I mean I have some attacks that I want to drop but don't really want to get spammed in the logs because they are just 'noise' as far as I'm concerned.

Hi...Within the threat profiles we log events where we took actions block/drop/reset for auditing purposes and the logging cannot be turned off.  Log suppression is ON by default to reduce repeated events and create only 1 log entry.

Thanks.

Is that suppression setting tweakable?

For example if I like to have it suppressed in ACC but not when sent to syslog-server?

The log suppression is a system-wide setting, and its setting can be configured via the CLI:

> show system setting logging

> set system setting logging log-suppression

The suppresion counter is shown as 'repeat count' in the log details.  Thanks.
