Receive Emails with Crawl Logs after Failed Crawls

In Administration > Alerts > Content Source Subscription, you can subscribe to crawl notifications. An email with the name of the content source and other environment details is sent to you each time a crawl succeeds and/or fails. The change in this release concerns emails sent after an unsuccessful crawl. In addition to the content source's name, the crawl time, and instance name, you will get a .log file in the email. Looking at the logs will help receivers figure out the reason behind the failure.
