Alerts Configuration page enables the user to set custom thresholds on multiple metrics, and to trigger alerts based on those thresholds. Alerts can be armed, among other metrics, per total bytes, DNS traffic, P2P traffic or packets, in a fixed time interval. Available time intervals are 1 and 5 minutes, 60 minutes, and 1 day. Two columns are available for configuration. The first affects only the selected local host, whereas the second affects all local hosts.
