We got a bunch of NSM alerts via email for this previous Sunday, "Connection to Device Primary SonicWall failed" "Please check your NSM dashboard for more details". We don't have a syslog or anything setup so the logs don't go back far enough. That's an issue we're working on but is there anything useful to be found in the NSM dashboard? I've been clicking around and can't seem to find anything except the alerts from Sunday. Clicking them just acknowledges them and they disappear. The interface seems very confusing and difficult to find anything useful regarding the alerts it sent.
On another note, what is the purpose of the NSM? I didn't purchase this so I'm in the dark why we even have it. It doesn't seem very intuitive at all and I question if this is something we even want to be messing with?
