View events using the event log

You can view the event log, which provides a historical record of events that have occurred on the storage array.

Procedure

  1. Select Support > Event Log.
    The Event Log page appears.
  2. Optional: To retrieve new events from the storage array, click Refresh.
    It can take several minutes for an event to be logged and become visible in the Event Log page.
  3. Optional: To save the event log to a file:
    1. Select the check box next to each event that you want to save.
    2. Click Save.
    The file is saved in the Downloads folder for your browser with the name major-event-log-timestamp.log.
  4. Optional: To clear events from the event log:
    The event log stores approximately 8,000 events before it replaces an event with a new event. If you want to keep the events, you can save them, and clear them from the event log.
    1. First, save the event log.
    2. Click Clear All, and confirm that you want to perform the operation.
