Viewing Alerts Events

The Alerts tab (on the Monitoring Results page) displays a list of all alert events, and thereby allows all alert event to be viewed in one place.

Whenever an alert (or USB monitoring rule) is triggered, a new record of the corresponding alert (or USB monitoring) event that occurred is added to the list displayed in the grid.

The following information about each alert (or USB monitoring rule) triggered is displayed in the corresponding columns:
