Once you identify an interesting problem, XpoLog provides a number of options. You can either choose to investigate the data source for more problems, or expand the analysis to more sources under the same Application or Server. In addition, a common option that is available is to search for the problem in the data source using the search engine, or to search for other specific problems that were discovered in the Analytics console.
Searching For a Problem in the Analytics Console
You can search for a problem in the Analytics console by clicking the Search button located on the left side of the Search and Navigation Bar below the list of data sources or problems in the Problems Summary table.
For example, searching for "Failure" at the problem level, shows all problems containing the word "failure", such as "Login failure" and "Audit failure". Searching for "Failure" at the log, application, or server level, shows the distribution of problems containing the word "Failure" in these members.
To search for a problem in the Analytics console:
- Below the Problems Summary table, on the left side of the Search and Navigation Bar, click the Search icon.
A Search textbox opens.
- In the textbox, type the text to search for in the list of problems that was detected by Analytics, and then click the Search button.
The console loads data sources that contain the problems the meet your search criteria. If the search was made on a number of Logs, Applications, or Servers, the search results are presented across those data sources.
Searching for a Problem in XpoSearch
You can search in the log for any problem that is detected by Analytics, by zooming into the XpoSearch search engine from any problem in the Problems Summary table. If XpoSearch finds the problem, it displays it in the search results area, and the Analytics engine highlights the priority accordingly.
To search for a problem in XpoSearch:
- In the Problems Summary Table, click the problem or click the Search in XpoSearch button at the end of the row of the problem.
XpoSearch opens, running a search for the problem in the log events. The problem text is highlighted in the events of the log.
For example, drilling down on the Windows Event Logs folder lists the distribution of problems in the Security, Application, and Systems logs. Drilling down on the Application log, displays the problems in the log, including "error code". Clicking "error code" starts a search in XpoSearch: "error code" in folder.Windows Event Logs in log.Application, and the resulting events have "error code" highlighted in them.
