View network events in the Web Console

All events that occur to monitored devices on your network are automatically logged and displayed in the Orion Web Console. You can view and remove them as your network management policies require.

Filter events

Network events are logged and shown in the order they occur in the Events view of the Orion Web Console.

You can choose how long network events are kept in the Events Retention field in Orion Polling Settings under Database Settings.

  1. Click Alerts & Activity > Events in the menu bar.
  2. Filter events by object, event type, or time period.
  3. In the Show X Events field, provide the maximum number of events to view. Showing a large number of events, such as a 1000, can negatively impact performance.
  4. To show events that have already been cleared, select Show Cleared Events.
  5. Click Refresh.

Clear or remove events

Clearing an event removes the event from the Events view.

Cleared events are not removed from the event log and can still be used for reporting.

  1. Click Alerts & Activity > Events in the menu bar.
  2. Select individual events to clear or click Select All.
  3. Click Clear Selected Events.

Selected events are removed from the view. To view the events again, select Show Acknowledged, and click Apply.
