Analysts can view a list of events associated with a session in the Events view or in the Event Analysis view.
To display an event in the Events view do one of the following:
- To use the default query for the default service, go to INVESTIGATE > Events.
NetWitness Platform runs a default query on the last three hours for the default service (if one is set) or displays a dialog in which you can select a service and then runs the default query. The default query selects all events and the Events view displays events on the selected service, with the oldest events first.
- To view events for a specific meta value, go to INVESTIGATE > Navigate and when events are loaded in the Values panel, click a meta count (the meta count is in green text). You can also right-click the meta count for a meta value . When the context menu is displayed, click Open Events in new tab.
The Events view displays the events for the selected meta value.
The Events view provides three built-in presentations of event data: the Detail view, the List view, and the Log view.
This figure is an example of the Detail view.
You can use queries, the time range setting, and profiles to filter the events listed in the Events view. From any view type in Events view, you can extract files, export events, export logs, and open the Event Reconstruction panel by double-clicking an event. See Examining Raw Events in the Events View for detailed information about these capabilities.
To display events in the Event Analysis view, do one of the following:
- Go to INVESTIGATE > Navigate, right-click the meta count for a meta value (the meta count is in green text). When the context menu is displayed, select Open Event Analysis in new tab.
The Event Analysis view displays the events for the selected meta value.
For detailed information about the types of analysis that you can use in this view, see Analyzing Raw Events and Metadata in the Event Analysis View.
