Monitor IPS Events
You are here: Monitor > Events > IPS.
Use the monitoring functionality to view the IPS page.
Using the time-range slider, you can quickly focus on the time and 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.
You can select either the Grid View tab or the Chart View tab to view your data:
Grid View—View the comprehensive details of IPS events in a tabular format that includes sortable columns. You can group the IPS events using the Group By option. For example, you can group the events based on source country. The table includes information such as the event name, UTM category, source IP address, source country, and so on. Table 1 describes the fields on the Grid View page.
Chart View—View a brief summary of all the IPS events in your network. The top of the page has a swim lane graph of all the IPS events. You can use the widgets at the bottom of the page to view critical information such as, top sources, top source countries, top destinations, and top destination countries. Table 2 describes the widgets on the Chart View page.

The filter list that is displayed above the grids.
Options available in the filter list are:
Select the criteria or parameter on which you want to construct the filter statement.
Displays the filter parameter that you selected from the filter list.
Note: In the filter statement the following limitation exists.
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 filter list if you selected event-name as the parameter, the text box displays Event-Name =. If you add IDP_ATTACK_LOG_EVENT to see only IPS events then the text box displays Event-Name = IDP_ATTACK_LOG_EVENT.
Executes the filter statement that is displayed in the text box.
