Events are of two types, external and intelligent events. External events are those that are received from third-party devices, and intelligent events are those that are generated from the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server. External events coming from a device known to the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server are automatically associated with that device.
The Event Report shows events that occurred during a specified time period. The report consists of a stacked bar graph, indicating the number of events on the Y axis and time period on the X axis based on the inputs. The graph lists all events consolidated, irrespective of their multiple occurrences in the bars of the graph. Drilling down from the bars in the graph shows events in that time interval block. Drilling down from a multiple options bar graph shows the list of events of the respective options. To see the severity and status history when you drilling down from the status, see Acknowledging events from the operator console.
If you are upgrading from ProactiveNet version 9.0 or later, BMC recommends that you use Performance Management Reporting Studio to generate event reports.
