The Events page manages the event logs which audits the activities on the files.



Events can be managed in three steps:

  1. Filter sessions and build a searchable Event Stream
  2. Search in the Event Stream
  3. View Results


1. Filter Sessions and Build a Searchable Event Stream

Create streams by importing event logs via filter or Session ID.


Event Stream by Filter

Choose the "Filter" radio option to import by filters. The following filters can be used to import the event logs:

  • Since (start date)
  • Until (end date)
  • User
  • Gateway
  • Share

Since

Specify a start date of the events.


Until

Specify an end date of the events.


User

Specify an existing or deleted user that performed the events.


Gateway

Specify an existing or deleted CacheDrive that the events occurred on.


Share

Specify an existing or deleted share that the events occurred on.


Event Stream by Session ID

Enter a Session ID to import event logs related to that session. Session IDs can be found in the Sessions page.


Event Steam from Cached Event Stream

Import event logs from a previously created Event Stream. View and manage saved event streams in the Saved Events Stream page.


Click CREATE EVENT STREAM to complete the process.


2. Search in the Event Stream

Once an event stream is created, admins can filter the event logs to generate reports or gain other insights on how the system is being utilized.


The Event Stream can be filtered using the following criteria:

  • Since (start date)
  • Until (end date)
  • User
  • Gateway
  • Share
  • Path Prefix
  • Path Suffix
  • Path Containing

Administrator can optionally include data in the results:

  • Includes Read Data
  • Includes Write Data
  • Includes Alternate Data Stream
  • Includes Meta Data Stream



Click SHOW DETAILS to view the results.


3. View Results

View a list of all events that meet the specified criteria for the search in the Event Stream


The search results can be modified to display information the administrator is interested in by changing the data columns included in the result list.


Choose which column to display in the list results from the following set of data:


  • Date/Time
  • Gateway
  • User
  • Operation
  • Share
  • path
  • IP Address
  • Host


Saving Search Results

Administrators can save the search results to download or view at a later time as a CSV file. 


To save a Search Result, enter a name for the CSV file and click the "Save" icon.



You can download the saved CSV files from the Saved Event Stream page.
