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 service and select Actns.png > View> System.

The following figure shows an example of the Services System view for a Decoder.
