Using Filters

Filters are used to search logs and view information about filter condition, time, or fields in the logs. You can configure basic and advanced filters to match the filtering conditions. You can either load existing filters or define a new filter. A filter allows you to enter specific information that must be displayed on the Event Viewer page; for example, the columns in the Event Viewer table, the type of graph, the time period, and the aggregation point. When you change an existing filter or create a new filter, the Event Viewer table and event graph are updated automatically. If filters contain time details, the time control in Event Viewer is updated with the time specified in the filter.

You can edit, save, delete, or search filters on the Event Viewer page. To open the filter options, select Monitor > Events & Logs > Filters > Show Saved Filters on the Event Viewer page.

  1. Create Filters
