There are built-in controls for usage alerts to avoid generating excessive numbers of alert messages. Use the Maximum daily alerts per usage type setting to specify a limit for how many alerts are sent in response to user requests for particular categories and protocols. See Configuring general alert options for more information.
You can also set threshold limits for each category and protocol usage alert, and for each suspicious activity alert. For example, if you set a threshold limit of 10 for a certain category, an alert is generated after 10 requests for that category (by any combination of clients). See Configuring category usage alerts and Configuring protocol usage alerts for more information.
Suppose that the maximum daily alerts setting is 20, and the category alert threshold is 10. Administrators are only alerted the first 20 times category requests exceed the threshold. That means that only the first 200 occurrences result in alert messages (threshold of 10 multiplied by alert limit of 20).
