You can view system health events related to selected entities within a specified time range, using the Health history report.
There are three severity levels of health events:
What you should know
Almost every entity in your system can generate health events. You can choose which health events to monitor by configuring the Health Monitor role.
For example, if an entity is experiencing issues, you can search for past health events that have occurred in relation to that entity. If you want to search if there were critical errors that happened in the system during the last week, you can filter you search only for errors, and set a time range.
NOTE: Health events also appear in the notification tray as system messages () as they occur in real time.
- From the home page, open the Health history task.
Set up the query filters for your report. Enable one or more of the following
- Event timestamp
- Define the time range for the query. The range can be defined for a specific period or for global time units, such as the previous week or the previous month.
- Health event
- Name of the health event.
- Health severity
Severity level of the health event:
- Select a computer that was having health issues to investigate.
- Show current health events
- Restrict the search to active health events. Only events that have been active for
longer than the specified duration are listed in the report.NOTE: Dismissing an event from the Health history task or the System messages dialog box removes it from the list of active events.
- Source entity
- Source entity of the event.
- Source group
- Source entity group of the event. Usually a role or a unit.
Click Generate report.
The health events of the selected entities are listed in the report pane.
To dismiss active health events that have the Error severity level, select the event and click Dismiss health event. The event is removed from the report and from the System messages dialog box. When you regenerate the report, dismissed events are still listed, as long as the Show current health events filter is disabled.
