Monitoring All Events

 

Purpose

The All Events page displays an overall, consolidated, high‐level view of your network environment. You can view all types of events that are being logged in your SRX platform. You can view abnormal events, attacks, viruses, spam attacks when log data is correlated and analyzed. This page provides you with an advanced filtering mechanism and visibility into actual events.

Note
  • For the events to be logged, registered, and displayed in the graph, the device should be in stream mode. You can configure stream mode in the Configure > Device Setup > Basic Settings > Logging page.

  • Starting in Junos OS Release 19.1R1, All Events option is available for logical system users.

Action

To monitor all events, select Monitor>Events>All Events in the J-Web user interface.

Meaning

Time Range graph displays the trend of all events or flow for all the events that has transpired in the device.

You can specify the duration of time for which you want to view the trend for all events. The available options are 30m, 1h, 2h,… and so on, which are displayed at the top right hand side of the page. For example, if you choose 30m, the end time is the current system time and the start time is the preceding 30 minutes from the current system time.

Click Custom to specify a customized time range. The Custom Time Range Selection popup window is presented. You can set the from and to date and time, and click OK to set the time range.

To refresh the graph on demand, click the refresh button.

You can also drag the slider in the Time Range graph from the extreme left or right of the graph and set the time range to see the trend or flow of events that has transpired in that time range.

The graphs display the trend analysis in swim lane chart for the time range that you specified in the Time Range graph.

The legend in each graph shows the colors and its related interpretation.

For example, in the Firewall graph, blue color represents all firewall events and black represents blocked firewall events. Similarly, in the IPS graph, orange, amber, and yellow represent critical, high, and medium IPS attacks respectively.

Mouse over at any point in the swim lane chart to view further details at that point.

Grid View—Displays information in grids that are lazy loaded with infinite scrolling. You can narrow down your search to a particular event based on IP address, description, or attack name.

Filters:The dropdown filters that are displayed above the grids.

First dropdown filter

Options available in the first filter dropdown are: Firewall, Webfilter, ContentFilter, Antispam, Antivirus, Ipsecvpn, and IPS.

Select the event that you want to filter in the first dropdown filter.

Second dropdown filter

Options available in the second filter dropdown are: event-name, source-address, destination-address, application, user, service, policy, nested-application, source-interface, and source-zone.

Select the next criteria of the event on which you want to filter from the second dropdown filter.

Text box

Displays the filter parameter that you selected from the second filter dropdown.

Note:

In the filter statement the following limitation exists.

  • You can use only one operator at a time.

  • You can use only one instance of the criteria or paramenter in one filter statement.

For example, if you have used & operator and the parameter event-name once, I cannot use them again in the same filter statement

CORRECT USAGE: event name = rt_flow_session_close & application=TELNET

WRONG USAGE:event name=rt_flow_session_close & event-name = rt_flow_session_create

WRONG USAGE:event name = rt_flow_session_close & source-address=x.x.x.x & application=TELNET

Note: The filter statement is NOT case-sensitive.

Add the parameter for which you want to filter. For example, in the first dropdown if you selected Firewall as the event filter and in the second filter dropdown you selected event-name as the parameter, then the text box displays event-name = . If you add rt_flow_session_closeto see only Firewall events then the text box displays event name = rt_flow_session_close.
