My Favorite Search

The Overview top pane displays a real-time view of events generated based on a user-defined ‘favorite’ search. By default, the Change Auditor Real-Time search definition is used and all events captured for the last 20 minutes are displayed

As events are returned, they are added to the search results, providing you with a real-time view of what’s happening in your environment. By default, the events are sorted by date, with the latest event being added to the top of the list. You can, however, use the column controls to select a different sort criteria for the information displayed. For more information on customizing the content of this table, see Customize table content.

Double-clicking an event displays the Event Details pane across the bottom of the page, which contains additional details regarding the selected event. The layout and content for My Favorite Search is the same as that used on the Search Results page. For a description of the search results grid and the Event Details pane, please refer to Search Results grid and Event Details pane.

Overview panes

You can customize the Overview panes across the bottom of the Overview page based on your preference to display a variety of overview information about Change Auditor. By default, the Top Agent Activity and Agent Status panes display across the bottom of the Overview page. However, each of these panes has an arrow button on its heading that you can use to display different overview information.

The following overview views are available:

Within the overview panes, blue underlined numbers are hypertext links. Selecting a link displays the search results for the selected count.

Top Agent Activity

The Top Agent Activity pane displays the most active agents in your environment. That is, the agents that have forwarded the most events to the coordinator based on the date range selected. If this pane is not displayed, click the arrow on the heading of one of the lower panes and select Top Agent Activity to display this pane.

By default, the agent activity on all servers for the past month, excluding uninstalled agents, will be displayed. You can, however, use the controls located at the top of this pane to specify the types of agented objects to be included as well as the date range.

By default all agented objects are included. However, you can use the drop-down menu located in the upper left corner of this overview pane to limit the types of objects to be included:

All - view all agented servers and workstations (default)
DCs - view only agented domain controller servers
Servers - view only agented servers that are joined to the domain
Workstations - view only agented workstations that are joined to the domain
Others - view only non-member objects, such as ADAM workgroup servers or workstation agents manually installed on non-Active Directory machines

Select this check box to include all uninstalled agents in the count. Uninstalled agents are not included by default.

By default, data will be collected for the last month. However, you can use the controls in the upper right corner of this overview pane to specify a different time interval for collecting this data.

Where: <nn> is a positive numeric value and <interval> is one of the following:
