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® Platform Broker 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:
- In the NetWitness Platform menu, go to ADMIN > Services.
The Services view is displayed.
- Select a service and select > View> System.
The following figure shows an example of the Services System view for 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).
