User's Guide. 8. Events

The Events view allows users to see what is happening in Abiquo. It is divided into two parts. In the right panel there is a list of all the events and errors that occurred in the system. In the left panel, there is a filter for selecting only certain events to view.

Event viewing can be restricted using privileges assigned to user roles. Users can have: no event privileges; the Display all events for current enterprise privilege; or the Display all events privilege. Users with no event privileges will not see the Events icon or the Events window in the Home view.

The default User and the default Enterprise Admin role have the Display all events for current enterprise. The default Cloud Admin role has the Display all events privilege.

The Event List

The event list has 7 columns:

Column

Description

Source

Shows the system object that is the source of the event or error and its full hierarchy. For example, it could be a MACHINE MODIFY event, where the source is myMachine (the name of the machine) which is part of a rack named myRack which is part of a datacenter named myDatacenter which belongs to the Abiquo enterprise.

Date

The date and time when the event was generated.

Action

The action that was performed when the event was generated.

User

The user who performed the Action.

Trace

Additional information about the event. The trace displayed in Events view are documented under Logs in the Troubleshooting section of the Abiquo Administrator's Guide. See Abiquo Logs#Messages in Catalina.out and Events View

Severity

The severity of the event. From INFO (information event) to CRITICAL (a critical error that compromises platform stability).

There is also the Update automatically checkbox. If checked, new events will be automatically added to the list as they arrive. Otherwise, you must refresh the list manually.

Double-click on an event to see the event detail.

Filtering Events

To make it easier to find a specific event, use the filter tool in the left panel of Events view. You can search for events related to a datacenter, a user, an enterprise, and so on. You can also filter by:

  • Severity
  • Action
  • Components
  • Storage Systems.
    One or more fields can be used for filtering at the same time, which increases the power of the filtering tool to help you keep up to date with what is happening in the system. 
    Use  button to start a new search and the  button to clear all text fields.

Severity Table

NORMAL

General information about the state of the platform.
