This topic introduces features in the System view using the Decoder and Log Decoder as an example. See the Configuration Guides individual services (for example for the RSA NetWitness® SuiteBroker and Concentrator Configuration Guide) for details on their ADMIN > Services > System Views.

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 NetWitness Suite , go to ADMIN > Services.
    The Services view is displayed.
  2. Select a service and select The actions drop-down > View> System.

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

Features

Services Info Toolbar

The following toolbars show the options specific to Log Decoders and Decoders.

The top toolbar shown here belongs to a Log Decoder, and the bottom toolbar belongs to 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).
