View Alert History Report

Overview

Druva provides alerts and their severities as an indication of how serious an issue is and, therefore, how promptly it needs to be addressed. The monitoring tools generate alerts to notify Druva administrators of changes, high-risk actions, or failures in the environment. All of these details and actions are captured in the Alert History report. The Alert History report provides alert details based on their severities and types in a pictorial and tabular representation. 

There are three types of alerts:

  • Info: No remedial action is required.
    For example, when a new device is enrolled or an existing device is unenrolled.
  • Warning: Investigate whether any action is required.
    For example, malicious applications are detected on the same device within a short span of time.
  • Critical: Action is required immediately because the scope of the problem has increased. Investigate critical alerts or events immediately.
    For example, the same malware is detected across multiple devices in your environment.

In addition to the above severities, the Alert History report provides you with Resolved and Unresolved alert count. Alert details can be downloaded in PDF, CSV or CSV-Summary formats. You can also email the reports to the intended recipients.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Druva Cloud Platform Console. 
  2. Click Global_nav_Panel.png to access the Global Navigation Panel > Reports > Hybrid Workloads. The Hybrid Workloads Reports page appears. 
  3. Click Alert History.
    The Alert History page appears. By default, the report provides details of the alerts that occurred in the last 30 days.
    You can apply filters to the report to fetch resource alerts data details per your requirements.  You can view the generated report, download it, or send it through an email to the intended recipients. You can also download data in the widgets in the CSV, CSV-Summary, and PDF formats. You can sort data in the table view using single or multiple columns, and rearrange columns in the table as required.

    Note:  The timestamp recorded in  the report (appearing next to the report title) follows the administrator’s time zone. However, the timestamps of the data fetched in the report follow the UTC time zone.
