    VPN Events and Logs Overview

    Use this page to view information about security events based on IPSec VPN policies. The event viewer provides a view of all IPsec VPN events.

    Using the time-frame slider, you can quickly focus on the area of activity that you are most interested in. Once the time range is selected, all of the data presented in your view is refreshed automatically. You can also use the Custom button to set a custom time range.

    There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the summary view or the detail view.

    VPN Events—Summary View

    Click Summary View for a brief summary of all the VPN events in your network. The top of the page has a swim lane graph of all the VPN events. You can use the widgets at the bottom of the page to view critical information such as top sources, top destinations, and top reporting devices. See Table 1 for descriptions of the widgets in this view.
