Yes, if you have configured your ossec.conf (Manager side) with the option
"log_all" to yes.

The behavior is that: the agent will send the events occurring in his side
depending of his configuration (ossec.conf of the agent. You can allow the
agent to send all events or do a configuration in order to filter the
events that you want to send). These events arrive to the Manager and it's
necessary to decide if the event is relevant or not. For that, the manager
check against the decoder and rules and if the event analized is relevant
it's included in "alerts.log". If not, the log will not be registered. But,
if you have the option "log_all" to yes in ossec.conf of the manager, this
option allow the manager to register ALL events received from all agent to
Hope it helps.
