  • Filtering Events

    I often browse all the computers on my network to see if they are getting specific errors, so I will put event ids into the filters. It would be nice to be able to save a collection of predefined filters that could be recalled and used. For example, I just loaded software that creates event ids 1001, 1010, 1201. Another time I might want to look for 1017, 1019, and 1032. This would be an expansion of the "recall last filter" function.

    Re: Filtering Events be able to save and recall frequently used filters would be nice.

      Also, it would be nice if there was a keyboard shortcut to move from one filter entry field to another. [TAB] seems intuitive but it doesn't work for me.

        And how can I refresh filtered data? If I click the refresh button I'm back to the beginning...have to re-enter all of the filters again....

          The original poster was asking about a method to save the parameters used when viewing events (a filter), which was added several releases ago. You appear to have this mixed up with the filter button, which lets you filter data after it is retrieved.

          The filtering cells that you see under the headings in the right window is based on functionality built into the Windows list control. Hyena does not control the keyboard or mouse when you are entering data into these fields; this is handled by Windows.

          We don't have a way of saving the filter parameters because there isn't any method to tie the information that you enter back to the cells if you were to recall it, as a lot of Hyena's views are dynamic.

          Finally, the filtering mode was never meant for data that changes and needs to be refreshed.
