Cinegy Enterprise Manager allows you to audit different types of events via the "Audit and applications log" feature. These events are controlled within the "Audit" tab and the "Applications log" tab.
The "Audit" tab consists of two further tabs, "Audit log" and "Control panel".
In the "Audit log" window, a full list of the audit events is displayed in the form of a table with four columns:
eventnumber – the number of the audit event;
eventtype – the type of the audit event;
eventtime – the time of the event auditing;
eventdata – the description of the audit event in XML format.
To narrow the list of audit events to the specified time, select the "between" checkbox and define the initial and final time values in the corresponding fields.
You can change the ordering of events in the list by choosing the "FIRST" or "LAST" option from the "Show" drop-down list. To define the number of events to be displayed, enter an appropriate value via the keyboard, or use the buttons.
To generate the event report and export it to the text file, use the "Export to file" button. Press the button to locate the folder where the report file in the text format will be stored, or simply enter the file path via the keyboard. The sample of the event report is shown below:
