Events

This page describes the events available in the WekaIO system and how to work with them.

Overview

WekaIO events indicate relevant information concerning the WekaIO cluster and customer environment. Triggered by a customer operation or an environment change, events can be informational, indicate a problem in the system or indicate a (previous) problem that has been resolved.

Working with Events Using the GUI

Viewing Events

To view the events screen using the GUI, click the Events Log button on the left bar:

Filtering Events

Events can be filtered by choosing a filter. Filtering can be performed according to event severity, category, IDs and timestamps. Selection of multiple filters is also possible (for event categories and event IDs).
