The Event Source Monitoring view consists of the Event Source panel, Add/Edit Source Monitor dialog, Decommission panel, and the Decommission dialog. You use the view to configure:

  • When to generate notifications for event sources from which the Log Collector is no longer receiving logs.
  • Where to send those notifications.
  • When to decommission a Log Collector when a Remote Collector and the Local Collector fails over to a standby Log Decoder.

The required role to access this view is Manage NW Auditing. To access this view:

  1. Go to Admin > Health & Wellness.
  2. Select Settings > Event Source.
