Module Summary

• Event Management is an important component of network administration that deals with monitoring network activities. • Information about the various hardware and software events generated by host systems can be recorded in the Event Log. • The logged data can be viewed by using the Event Log and Event Monitor pages in CSA MC. • The Event Monitor display is automatically refreshed at regular intervals to show information about the most recently logged events. • The Event Management Wizard is used to track, report, and analyze the activities that are recorded in the Event Log. • Alerts are configured and sent to the network administrator based on the severity level of the logged event. • Reports can be broadly classified into Events by Severity, Events by Group, Group Detail, Host Detail, and Policy Detail. • There are two types of report viewers—ActiveX and HTML Frame.
