Event Analyzer captures daily snapshots of all EMS Events of one or more Collectors, which are then analyzed and stored in a historical indexed database.  This information is retained for any period of time determined by the system administrator.

Event analyzer has a control bar on top, along with three graphs which display Event counts in a drill-down fashion, in two categories of Critical (red) and Non-Critical / others (green).  When you first access Event Analyzer, it displays information for the most recent day of the current month (or most recent month, if today is the first day of the month).

Control Bar – Select from the options below and click on Submit.

  • Year – Default is the current year, but you may select any prior year for which data is retained.
  • All or selection – By default counts of all Events are displayed.  You may however choose a specific Owner, or Owner & Subsystem, or Owner & Subsystem & Event number.
  • D/H or W/H – Default is Days & Hours (D/H) which displays information for each day of a selected month.  You may also choose Weekdays and Hours (W/H), which sums up counts of Events and displays them for the weekdays (Sunday – Saturday) of each month.
