Connectivity Events View

The Connectivity Events view Pic 1 is by default located at the bottom of the main program window. This view is used to display the important connectivity status events for all monitored hosts. All connections status changes except regular connection establishment when the monitoring is started are treated as important events. Those events grouped by hosts are also available within the Events section of the Details view.

The Connectivity Events view

Pic 1. The Connectivity Events view

The connectivity events are displayed in a form of a table where each row represents a single event for a specific host. You can sort, group and filter the events by any column as well as change the columns set. You can always roll back to the default view presentation using the Reset Layout item from the view configuration menu. By default the table consists of the Status column, displaying the status change, the Host column, representing the host, the Description column, standing for the event description, and the Time column for the event trigger time. If the host currently exists in the program, its name is represented with the hyperlink. When this hyperlink is clicked, the details for this host are opened in the Details view.

The description for each event is by default wrapped, so that you can easily read it. If you would like to have more events visible at the same time, you can configure the Connectivity Events view to display only one line per event by disabling the Wrap Description option from the view configuration menu.

Configuration

Configuration

The Configuration button from the Connectivity Events view toolbar opens the view configuration menu where you can reach the automatic events removal configuration, enable/disable automatic scroll and messages wrapping, and reset the layout of the view.

The connectivity events are selected only for the specified date range. This approach is used to optimize memory usage and performance as there may be lots of events in the entire database. The display range for connectivity events is by default set to the Last 7 Days value and can be changed with the range drop-down button on the view toolbar. The text on the button shows you the currently applied range. You can choose between the predefined ranges or provide a custom one.

To prevent the events database from continuous growing, the events can be deleted either manually or automatically. To delete all events manually, press the Clear button on the toolbar or choose the Clear item from the pop-up menu. The automatic events deletion is configured on the Monitoring Events preference page.

If it is really important for you to see the newly arrived events as soon as possible, you can enable the Autoscroll option in the view configuration menu. In case this option is enabled, the view will automatically scroll to new events as soon as they arrive.

Using the toolbar or pop-up menu it is also possible to export all or selected connectivity events to a CSV file for future analysis, sharing with colleagues or sending problem reports to your ISP.
