    To Do This:

    ADS Delivery Time

    Define how full the audit repository must be before forwarding audit messages to the Metasys Server .

    Dial-Up Audit Forwarding Threshold

    Define if the Audit Trail feature overwrites existing audit messages or stops generating audit messages when the audit repository is full.

    Note: This action is only valid when the device is not set to forward data to a Metasys Server . The stop/rollover option only applies when there is no forwarding to an external repository.

    Audit Action When Full

    Define if the Audit Trail feature should generate an alarm when the audit repository is full.
