This topic introduces features in the System view that pertain specifically to Decoders and Log Decoders.

A Log Decoder is a special type of Decoder, and is configured and managed in a similar way to a Decoder. Therefore, most of the information in this section refers to both types of Decoders. Differences for Log Decoders are noted.

To access the Services System view for a Decoder:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
    The Administration Services view is displayed.
  2. Select a Decoder or Log Decoder, and select Actions menu cropped > View> System.

This is an example of the Services System view for a Decoder.

In addition to the common options in the Services System view toolbar, you can start and stop capture of packets or logs. The upload file options are different for the standard Decoder (packet capture file) and the Log Decoder (log file).

Upload Packet Capture File Displays a dialog that provides a way to select a packet capture (.pcap) file for upload to the selected Decoder. For more information, see Upload Packet Capture File.

Note: This option does not apply to Log Decoders.

Upload Log File Displays a dialog that provides a way to select a log (.log) file for upload to the selected Log Decoder. For more information, see Upload Log File to a Log Decoder.
