To prioritize and quickly take action on impacted devices, you can use the built-in filters or create your own custom filters for advanced options.

The following table describes the filters you can use:

Filter typeDescription
Device type

From the device type filter , select:

  • All Devices to view all the devices that are monitored.
  • My Favorites to view only the devices set as a favorite.
  • A device type to view only that device type. For example, select Server to view only servers.

Note

Supported devices that do not belong to any device type are listed under Servers.

Devices with event statusSelect the event status or statuses that you want to view. Filtering is disabled when you do not select any filters.
Devices that have at least one event of the selected event status type are displayed. For more information, see event status.
Devices with event severitySelect the event severity or severities that you want to view. Filtering is disabled when you do not select any filters.
Devices that have at least one event with the selected event severity are displayed. For more information, see event severity.
Time

From the time filter action menu, select one of the predefined time periods or create a custom time filter.

Creating a custom time filter

  1. From the time filter action menu, select Define Period.
  2. Choose the start and end date and time.
  3. Select Apply Filter.

Note

Only the latest five custom filters that you created are displayed in the Custom Time Periods list.

Custom time filters that you create are not available after you log off the TrueSight console.

Custom

See Customizing device filters.

Tip

The event status and event severity filters work in conjunction and devices that meet both filter criteria are displayed.

For example, if you select Open and Assigned from the event status filter and select Critical and Major from the event severity filter, the result displays the list of devices that have at least one open or assigned event with a critical or major severity.
