Log Viewer (Full Page Report)
The Log Viewer full page report presents a summary of all log entries retrieved by or sent to WhatsUp Gold within the selected time period. The report contains two main viewing areas:
- The first displays a graph tracking the quantity of log entries by severity. The graph can be configured to chart log entry quantity by minute, hour, or day by clicking the Settings icon and selecting from the Chart Options menu. Please note, this menu also includes a Group by Time setting of which causes the report to adjust from minute to hour to day depending on the length of the date/time range selected without user interaction. Additionally, you have the ability to further customize the chart by clicking on any of the severity categories shown in the legend below the graph to hide them from display. Click any hidden category to return the corresponding chart data to the display.
- The second contains the list of individual log entries. Hover your mouse over any column header, then click the icon that appears to display a drop-down menu you can use to further refine results and customize the report by choosing which data points appear in the report. Hover over , then select the applicable column or columns you'd like to see on the Log Viewer full page report. Use the same drop-down menu to sort report data, if needed. To see the detailed, structured log message for any individual line item, click the icon at the far-left of the applicable log entry to expand the display.
Either viewing area may be hidden from view by clicking the Settings icon, then disabling the applicable checkbox. Set the date/time range for the report using the dedicated control found at the upper-left corner of the user interface. To refine the report content to better fit your log management needs, use the search field at the top of the screen to locate any log entries using the term(s) entered. You also have the option to launch the Advanced Filter Builder to create and save more complex searches which use multiple criteria to identify target log entries.
