Discussion

It is critical that when the IDPS is at risk of failing to process audit logs as required, it takes action to mitigate the failure Audit processing failures include: software/hardware errors; failures in the audit capturing mechanisms; and audit storage capacity being reached or exceeded. Since action must be taken immediately, these messages will be designated as a critical severity level and this level must be sent as part of the alert message.
