Events indicate that a policy has been violated, meaning all of the policy's conditions have been met for the set duration. In other words, events indicate that Netuitive has detected anomalous behavior in one or more of the elements in your environment.
Event categories are user-assigned via the Policy Editor and associated with the severity of the event. Each event can be assigned one category. There are three color-coded categories that indicate the severity of the event. Table 1-3 below describes each event category, listed in ascending severity.
|Info||Blue||The Info category indicates that a policy has been violated, but the anomalous behavior is not critical.|
|Warning||Yellow||The Warning category indicates that a policy has been violated, and there will likely be a more critical event in the future.|
|Critical||Red||The Critical category indicates that a policy has been violated, and the cause of the event should be addressed quickly.|
- Open Policy Editor.
- Underneath the Policy's name, in the Category drop-down menu, select Info, Warning, or Critical.
- After completing the remaining fields in Policy Editor, click Save.
The following tools allow you to view and analyze events in the Netuitive UI:
- Event Explorer: Event Explorer displays a comprehensive list of all the events in your environment. You can filter the list by the policy that generated the event, event category, source (Netuitive or External), element, element type, and/or tag of the element(s) to which an event is associated. You can also filter events within a specific time frame. For more information about Event Explorer, see Event Explorer.
- Metrics page: Metrics page displays the events and metric data for a specified element. The amount of data displayed can be limited by selecting a time frame setting, and by showing or hiding metric charts. For more information about Metrics page, see Metrics page.
