Creating Host Groups


 

EventLog Analyzer lets you group hosts from which event logs are collected. Host groups let you define which hosts you want to analyze event logs from. You can also create custom reports to report on event logs collected from this host group alone.

 

Click the Host Groups link from the Settings tab to perform operations on host groups.

 

By default, Windows hosts are grouped under the WindowsGroup, and UNIX hosts are grouped under the UnixGroup. All other hosts are grouped under the DefaultGroup.

Creating a New Host Group

Click the New Host Group link. In the popup window that opens, enter the following details:

  1. Enter a unique Group Name to identify the host group
  2. Give a meaningful Description to explain the purpose of the host group
  3. Select the hosts to be included in this group from the list of Available Host(s) and transfer > them to the Selected Host(s).

Once you are done, click Add to create this host group. Click Cancel to quit without creating any host group.

 

Click on the Number of Hosts link to list the hosts belonging to the corresponding group. Click on Edit Group icon to edit the group. To delete a particular group, select the group from the list of groups and click on the Delete Group delete icon. You cannot delete the WindowsGroup, UnixGroup, and DefaultGroup.

Editing a Host Group

Here you can add new hosts, or remove the existing hosts from this group.

To add new hosts to this group, select the hosts to be added from the list of Available Host(s) and transfer > them to the Selected Host(s).

To remove existing hosts from this group, select the hosts to be removed from the Selected Host(s) and transfer < them to the list of Available Host(s).
