This topic introduces features and functions of the Services System view.

The Services System view provides a services summary for Security Analytics Core services and some other services, for example Reporting Engine.

The summary information for Security Analytics Core services (Broker, Concentrator, Decoder, and Log Decoder) is similar, including information about: 

  • Service
  • Appliance Service
  • Service user information
  • Host user information
  • License information
  • Session information

The toolbar for Security Analytics Core services is also similar. The options provide a way to run command-line host tasks, control services and hosts, and other service-specific tasks such as uploading packet capture or log files to a service.

To access the Services System view:

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



This section describes common features for Security Analytics Core service types.

  • Features specific to Brokers and Concentrators are described in the Services System View - Broker topic in the Broker and Concentrator Configuration Guide.
  • Features specific to Decoders and Log Decoders are described in Decoder Services System View.

Services System View Toolbar

At the top of the Services System view is a toolbar. While some options in the toolbar apply to a specific service type, four options are common to all. The examples below show the options for a Concentrator, for a Decoder, and for a Log Decoder.
