8.- Logs and alerts

Using the Logs module you will be able to query and rotate all the logs of the services in the system. A unified query form exists to filter and understand the events in the logs without having to learn their format.

Unified logs show information over a period of time allowing to review the service behavior.

These logs allow you to create events and alerts to inform system administrator on how the server is working.

I like ebox but for do a gateway i think that it have i huge memory footprint, and in other hand you cannt install it with out x and firefox, and a lot of more software, if you choose gateway ( or just network in advance mode) you get x, firefox, users, etc... and for a gateway-firewall nobady needs all this things, and like i say before its consume a lot of memory in packages that you donnt will to use. If am i wrong and anybosy knows how to install ebox just like a gateway, please let me know.

thks, and sorry about my english.

Nicolas, you are wrong.

If you install ebox from recommended ISO then X server, Firefox will not be installed.
