  1. Navigate to Home > Status & Monitoring > Event Log to display the Event Log Management page.

  2. Click filter to open the Filter dialog.

    • In a cluster, specify the cluster node for which to display the log. In the Cluster Node field, you can select the specific node or All Cluster Nodes.
    • In the Event Category field, select the type of events to be included in the log: All events, System events, or Security events.

      System events are events that the system components have logged, such as the failure of a drive. Security events track changes to the security system and identify possible breaches of security.

    • You can specify an Event ID that you want included in the log.
    • You can specify an Event Description that you want included in the log.
    • Select the severity level of the events you want included in the log by selecting one or more of the check boxes: Information, Warning, or Severe. The Severe level includes any Critical events.
