The Services Stats view provides a way to monitor the status and operations of a service. This view displays key statistics, service system information, and host system information for a service. In addition, more than 80 statistics are available for viewing as gauges and in timeline charts. In historical timeline charts, only statistics for session size, sessions, and packets are viewable.

Quick Look

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

This is an example of the Stats view for a Decoder.

Although different statistics are available for different types of services, certain sections are common to the Services Stats view for any Core service:

  • Summary Stats
  • Gauges
  • Timeline Charts
  • Historical Timeline Charts
  • Chart Stats Tray

Summary Stats Section

The Summary Stats section is at the top of the default view and has no editable fields. There are five panels in the Summary Stats section: Key Stats, Service System Info, Host System Info, Logical Drives, and Physical Drives. The Key Stats panel displays different statistics for different types of services. The remaining four panels in the Summary Stats section are the same for all types of services.

Key Stats

The Key Stats panel displays different statistics for different types of services.

  • For a Network Decoder or Log Decoder, key statistics include capture statistics, such as capture rate, total packets or logs captured, total packets or logs dropped, the data capture begin time and end time.

  • A Broker or Concentrator aggregates data from multiple services. Therefore, the key statistics for all aggregate services are presented in a list. The columns in the list provide the service name, the capture rate, the maximum capture rate, the number of sessions behind (that need to be aggregated), and the service status.

Service System Info

The Service System Info panel includes the percentage of CPU used by the service, the memory usage statistics (system, total, process, and maximum process), service uptime, status, running since time, and the current time. 

This image shows Service System info.

Host System Info

The Host System Info panel includes the percentage of CPU used by the host, the memory usage statistics (system, total, process, and maximum process), host uptime, status, running since time, and the current time.

This is the Host System Info section.

Logical Drives and Physical Drives

The Logical Drives panel and Physical Drives panel are shown with an icon for the drive name and state. Drive types are used in the names and the drive status options are listed below.

Timeline charts display the selected statistics in a running timeline with focus on the current time. This is the same for all types of services, and only the display name of the timeline is editable. See Services Stats View - Timeline Charts for details on configuring timelines.

Historical Timeline Charts

Historical timeline charts display statistics for session size, sessions, and packets in a historical timeline. This is the same for all types of services. Only the display name, begin date, and end date. See Services Stats View - Timeline Charts for details on configuring timelines.

Note: Historical timeline charts is being deprecated for Log Collector, Virtual Log Collector (VLC) and Windows Legacy Collector services.
