Stopping email alert for Syslog related Logs.

How stop email alerts for syslog related logs? For example Email alert is generated for every one hour that syslog server is active.

Note: The log severity level for email alert is configured for high and it should be changed.

I do not know if you mean that, but the hourly message is a bug in 6.0.0.


Following an upgrade to PAN-OS 6.0.0, syslog connection status warnings for all defined syslog connections appeared in the system log every hour and were categorized as critical. This was caused by a scheduled hourly rotation of the syslog-ng log file, during which the syslog-ng daemon would restart. This issue has been fixed by adding a condition to the log file rotation process requiring the log file to be 10 MB or more and the connection status warning will only be seen once every few months.
