LogTarget - keep identical event detection

The identical event detection option in LogTarget object has been deprecated since 10.x firmware. IBM recommend disabling it as it might cause the appliance to reload.

However, after disabling the option in our email LogTarget for critical events, we started receiving 480+ identical email alerts for 4 appliances over 5 min period !!! That reminded us why we originally had it enabled. 

Can IBM preserve this option for LogTarget  if type is SMTP ?   Or better yet, fix the issue in "identical event detection " instead of deprecating it.

    Hi – Thank you for raising this enhancement request. We understand the importance of this requirement. The development team has carefully reviewed this idea and support case. It is not a standard course of action to lift the deprecation and enabling the same feature has some memory implications. The Idea has therefore been moved to the Not under consideration state. We will keep the Idea in the repository active and may still be voted and commented on.
