Screen Events and Logs Overview
You can use the Screen Events page to view the information about security events based on screen profiles. Analyzing screen logs yields information such as attack name, action taken, source of an attack, and destination of an attack.
Using the Time Range 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.
By default, you can view data for all the devices. To view data for a specific device, click on the link beside Devices and select a device.
There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the summary view or the detail view.
Screen Events—Summary View
Click Summary View for a brief summary of all Screen events in your network. The data presented in the area graph is refreshed automatically based on the selected time range.
You can use widgets to view critical information such as top sources, top destinations, top source countries, and top destination countries. See Table 1 for descriptions of the widgets in this view.
