Due to the large number of events that may have transpired, the Event Manager may take a lengthy time to open. To enhance the opening of the Event Manager, you must periodically Archive and Purge the events. It is recommended that you archive all events that are older than 30 days, then purge these events. See the Network Configuration Manager Installation Guides for information on using the Archive and Purge Utility.

Note: When viewing the Event Manager, keep in mind that it now automatically refreshes the view whenever new events occur.

The Event Manager feature allows you to view and manage activities that have transpired on the network. For example, you can access the log and view the Event, the Owner (or user), the Network that was accessed, the Date/Time the event was logged, and more!

Important: You must have Network Administration or System Administration permission to access the Event Manager.

Events can be related to Device events, System events, and Security events.  

This feature is designed to assist you in maintaining security, as well as auditing and following the activities of events and users.
