MailAdditionalBodyText

Use this Kiwi Syslog Server registry setting to include an additional line of text in the daily statistics and alarm e-mails. If you are receiving daily statistics or alarm e-mails from many syslog Servers, it can be useful to include a way of identifying which syslog Server the e-mail came from.

Section (32-bit Windows OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Properties
Section (64-bit Windows OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Properties
Value (STRING) MailAdditionalBodyText
Default value Blank
Type Text string

In the registry setting, add a line of text that best describes the name or location of the syslog Server. The text will be added to the beginning of the e-mail body.

For example, a normal statistics e-mail looks like this:

/// Kiwi Syslog Server Statistics ///
---------------------------------------------------
24 hour period ending on: Fri, 06 Feb 2004 13:04:55 +1300
Syslog Server started on: Fri, 06 Feb 2004 13:03:54
Syslog Server uptime: 24 hours, 0 minutes
---------------------------------------------------

+ Messages received - Total: 20000
+ Messages received - Last 24 hours: 20000

If you set the MailAdditionalBodyText setting to London - Firewall Monitoring Syslog Server, the daily statistics e-mail will look like this:

London - Firewall Monitoring Syslog Server


/// Kiwi Syslog Server Statistics ///
---------------------------------------------------
24 hour period ending on: Fri, 06 Feb 2004 13:04:55 +1300
Syslog Server started on: Fri, 06 Feb 2004 13:03:54
Syslog Server uptime: 24 hours, 0 minutes
---------------------------------------------------

+ Messages received - Total: 20000
+ Messages received - Last 24 hours: 20000

An additional CRLF is added before and after the text for better visibility.

You can also add additional subject text.
