Agent Logs

The Agent Logs page displays log data related to managed machines. There are corresponding log reports for each type of log provided.

Note: The system automatically limits the number of log entries per log type per machine to 1000. Once the limit has been reached, log entries exceeding the limit are archived, if archiving is enabled, and deleted from the system. The archive option is set in Log History.

Click the hyperlink of a machine ID to list all logs for that machine ID.

Select Log

Select a log from the Select Log drop-down list. The types of logs available include:

  • Alarm Log - Lists all alarms triggered for the selected machine.
  • Monitor Action Log - The log of alarm conditions that have occurred and the corresponding actions, if any, that have been taken in response to them.

    Note: A counter value of -998 in the monitor logs indicates the monitor set is returning no data. Check that the the Performance Logs & Alerts service in Windows is running. This is a pre-requisite for monitoring of performance counters.
