The sixth of the tabs
within the ‘Investigate’ view is the ‘Events’ tab as shown below:
different way of analyzing the history of a Service Check, the Events tab
allows Users to choose a date using the date picker on the left hand side,
which then re-populates the bar graph with the events (if any) for the chosen
date. In the screen above, we have 1 ‘OK’ event and ‘1’ warning events at
By default, the bar
graph is displayed ‘full tab’, with the event checker minimized. The mouse
can be hovered over the bars which will reveal the number of events in that
given state, i.e. 1 ‘OK’ events in the above example. When one or more bars are clicked, the event
checker will be populated with the events from the selected bars:
In the above example
we have clicked on the 1 warning events bar, which has loaded the event checker
with the 3 specified critical events. To clear the event checker and minimize
it we can simply re-click on the ‘1’ bar which will deselect it. When the event
checker is empty it will automatically minimize.
Within the event bar,
located in the top right, is a ‘downwards’ arrow. When moused-over, this arrow
will reveal four contextual menu options:
Download as – allows you to choose from one of four formats: png, jpg, svg or
Save data – allows you to choose from one of three options: .csv, .xlsx or
Annotate – When selected, allows you to draw and annotate the bar graph.
Once annotated, the bar graph can be downloaded using the ‘Download as…’
Print – allows you to print the bar graph as an image.
