Example: Investigating a drop in event rate

Use the System Overview page to view details about a drop in events and searches that were made by users. On the System Overview page, you notice a drop in events and some searches that were executed during the same time frame. You decide to investigate further by completing the following steps:


  1. From the Searches graph, click a point on the graph. A detailed list of searches for the time range that you selected displays in a list below the graph.
  2. From the Searches list, select a search item to view more information.

    By reviewing the details in the panel, you might find an expensive user run search that caused the drop in event rate. You can see where the search originated and which user created the search. You can now take action to ensure that searches like this are not executed again.
