Log Manager for Orion
Log Manager is a fully-integrated log management solution that is accessible through your Orion Web Console.
- Instantly view live event messages from nodes currently integrated with the Orion Platform.
- Quickly map unknown devices through the Node Management feature.
- Live event filtering to target, identify, and alert on current network issues.
- Seamless transitions between critical event messages and associated Orion Platform products for on-the-spot troubleshooting and issue resolution.
Filter and analyse event logs
In the Log Manager Filters pane, select one or more filters to refine your event log stream to display messages based on event type, node, IP address, vendor, and more.
Search and filter historical event logs
Log Manager includes an advanced search capability to access your aggregated event logs based on applied filters and a specified range of time. To set your search parameters, select your log filters, and then on the histogram chart, open the custom time picker to set your time frame.
Filter and view event logs in live mode
Switch the Log Viewer to live mode to view events as they occur in your environment. This is particularly useful when troubleshooting active network problems. You can apply "live" filters to target and identify issues using the Filters pane and keyword search, and then observe the histogram chart to note any spikes in activity or log anomalies.
Create custom log-processing rules
On the Log Processing Configuration page, you can create custom rules to complement the standard, out-of-the-box LM rule sets. You can define rule conditions to identify a specific log entry, and then establish subsequent actions, such as adding event tags, executing commands, and discarding log entries.
Apply tags to event logs
Apply pre-defined and custom log tags to quickly identify specific log activity. For example, if you are interested in a certain event ID or keyword, you can configure your rule to display a color-coded tag notification on event logs matching the defined criteria. You can also apply multiple tags to a single log event ID or keyword.
Disable and enable log-processing rules
The Log Processing Configuration page includes out-of-the-box rules that provide a visual identifier for common event groups. These pre-defined log tags are enabled by default and allow you to quickly identify specific event activity in your Log Viewer table.
Add unknown nodes to the Orion Platform
In the Orion Platform, messages received from an unknown network node are discarded until you add the device through Node Management. When log activity is observed from an unknown device, you will receive a notification in the Orion Web Console linking you to the Events page, where you can add the node as a managed device.
Drop unwanted event logs
Streamline your Log Viewer table by selecting and dropping unwanted event logs that clutter your log feed and occupy valuable database space. You can establish rule parameters that will discard all undesired logs to ensure relevant content displays in a more efficient manner.
