Beginning in mid-February 2017, improvements will be available on the Monitoring pages in the Alert Logic® user interface (UI) to reduce loading time and improve the overall monitoring experience for Alert Logic Threat Manager™. When a Monitoring page is accessed, an automatic search is no longer performed, allowing customers to immediately enter filters as needed and perform a search without waiting for default results to load. Additionally, you can now limit search results to a specific child customer or sub-parent, which can reduce load time for customers with multiple clients.
The Monitoring pages affected include the following four pages:
Perform Searches Without Waiting for Default Results
Results now display on Monitoring pages only after performing a search, rather than automatically loading when a Monitoring page is accessed. This enhancement allows you to set filters and select the data you want to see without first waiting for a default search to load.
When you first access a Monitoring page, such as the Events page, a message displays in the Results box to indicate you need to perform a search to display results.
Simply enter filters as necessary and click Search to perform the search and display your results.
View Data for Child Customers and Sub-Parents
Customers with child customers and sub-parents can now view data for a specific child customer or sub-parent. This enhancement allows you to limit a search to only the necessary customer or set of customers, reducing loading time for results.
To limit results to a specific customer or sub-parent, simply select the customer in the new Customer Selector drop-down field directly under the Alert Logic logo in the top-left corner.
When this new filter is used, you can greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to load results when data for only one customer is needed.
Note: The Customer Selector field only displays if your account has child or sub-parent customers.
