Hello EE,

We have a Checkpoint firewall and I am wondering:
1. Can you send email alerts any time a configuration change is made?
2. Is there any good documentation to explain what the applications are in the Check Point SmartView Tracker Management logs?
    For example I see SmartUpdate, CPMI Client, System Monitor and am mainly interested when somebody longs in and makes a change, but need some guidance on understanding these and wonder if anyone has one they can highlight for me or point me to some good documentation

Specifically one section covering
Choosing the Appropriate Tracking Option

For each rule you track, specify one of the following tracking options:
......Alert - Logs the event and executes a command, such as display a popup window, send an email alert or an SNMP trap alert, or run a user-defined script as defined in Policy > Global Properties > Log and Alert > Alert Commands ....

As for the log reviewing and commands, this may help to kickstart but do engage support to find more details..
