The ‘Events’ tab is
the sixth tab within the Investigate mode window, or seventh/last tab if the
‘Host Interfaces’ section is configured:
different way of analyzing the History of a Host and its Service Checks, the

checker with the three specified critical events. To clear the Event Checker
and minimize it we can re-click on the ‘three’ bar which will deselect
it. When the Event Checker is empty it will automatically minimize.
Within the event bar,
