View Events
The following is a list of scenarios for viewing and managing events:
  • Troubleshoot performance issues
    Troubleshoot performance issues with a specific device by filtering the events to that device. The
    Events
    view filters all events to display only those for the selected device.
  • Monitor thresholds
    Configure thresholds that generate events for specified devices, components, or groups. Use these events to track when the monitored devices do not meet operating requirements.
    For more information, see Configure Threshold Profiles.
  • Track configuration changes
    If you have choosen to manually control when changes to monitoring occur (the
    Automatically Update Metric Families
    option is cleared for a custom monitoring profile), view the events log to view configuration changes. Reconfiguration events with the
    Detected
    subtype indicate detected changes on the monitored devices. Reconfiguration events with the
    Changed
    subtype indicate changes to device items.
    For more information about this option, see Configure Monitoring Profiles.
  • Audit changes to the system
    Administration events provide useful information about changes to the system configuration, such as the time of a change.
