  3. Save your old ics.conf file by copying and renaming it.

  4. Edit one or more of the ics.conf parameters shown in the following table:


    Description and Default Value  


    Specifies whether csmonitor should loop continuously:"0" – Do not loop continuously (the default)."1" – Loop continuously.

    Set this parameter to “1” to enable csmonitor to run automatically.

    Specifies the email address csmonitor should send messages to. No default given.

    Specifies the debug level. With a range of 0-5, the higher this value, the more precise and verbose messages sent by csmonitor. The default is “0”, which specifies no logging. A value of “5” would indicate debug logging.
