You can filter the data displayed based on:

  • User. Search for a specific message relating to a user.
  • State. This is the error state.
  • Description. Enter a value in this field to create a results table listing the details for the hosts that have messages that match your search criteria. The search looks in the error messages returned in the syslog data for the word you entered.
