Apptrack Events and Logs Overview


You can use the Apptrack Events page to view information about security events based on Apptrack policies. The Apptrack logs helps you analyze the applications, the users using these applications, and bandwidth consumed by the applications.

Use the Time Range slider, to quickly focus on the area of activity that you are interested in. Once the time range is selected, the data on the page 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.

Apptrack Events—Summary View

Click Summary View for a brief summary of all the Apptrack 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 users, and top applications. See Table 1 for descriptions of the widgets in this view.

Apptrack Events—Detail View

Click Detail View for comprehensive details of all Apptrack events in a tabular format that includes sortable columns. You can sort the events using the Group by option. The table includes information such as the event name, source country, source IP, destination country, and so on.

The Legacy Node option is displayed in the event viewer after the legacy log collector node is added on the Logging Nodes page. We’ve added the legacy log collector support only for read only purpose to view existing log collector data. New logs should point to Security Director Insights VM as the log collector. Select the Legacy Node checkbox to view the existing log collector data. When you clear the Legacy Node checkbox, Security Director Insights log collector data is displayed.
