The Event Table Dashlet allows you to view the events (changes of state) generated within
Opsview Monitor in a Dashlet format. This table is a smaller version of the
table within the ‘Events Viewer’ section of ‘Monitoring’:
The Dashlet will display, in a time sorted order (most recent at the
top), the events that have been generated within Opsview Monitor. These events
can be filtered in a range of different ways, as per the settings modal window
for the Dashlet:
You can choose to filter the Events Table to show events that have
occurred within specific Business Services, Components, Host Groups, Hashtags,
Hosts, Host Templates or Service Checks – and also filter the events based on
their state, i.e. only show CRITICAL events, or only show ‘HARD’ events, etc.
These filters are applied using an ‘AND’ logic, i.e. ‘Only show events within
“Host Group A”, on Hosts “B” and “C”, only within the Host Template “Unix
Base”, and only show CRITICAL events, that are in a HARD state”.
Finally, you can also choose to restrict the number of events shown in
the table via the ‘Filter by Limit’ drawer, which allows you to choose between
showing 25, 50, 100 or 200 most recent events.
