Overview

Statseeker's Console is where users will spend the majority of their time when interacting with Statseeker. The Console provides quick access to both stock and custom reports, as well as the various filters and reporting options used to tailor the output of those reports to suit your requirements at the time.

Main Navigator

The Main Navigator offers access to the 4 major components of the Statseeker user interface and is persistent in all views.

  • Dashboards - view, create, edit, and manage Statseeker Dashboards
  • Console - the main Statseeker Console
  • Reports - view, create, edit, and manage reports. All saved reports are, be default, available from both the Reports and Console panels.
  • Admin Tool - opens the Administration Tool. This action is only visible to user accounts with the Admin role. Prior to v5.5.3, this option was only available in the Advanced Console.

Alerts Indicator

The alerts indicator highlights the presence of alert messages concerning the operational state of the Statseeker server - lack of connectivity, resources, etc.

There are two modes which can be toggled by clicking the icon:

  • - a filled icon indicates that the alerts will be overlaid on the console the alert is acknowledged or the issue resolved
  • - if the icon is empty, the number of current alert messages will be displayed on the icon, but the message itself is only briefly displayed. The count remains until the alert is acknowledged or the issue resolved.

Mousing over the user icon offers two options:

  • User Configuration - edit the current user details, for details on editing user accounts see Editing Users
  • Log Out - log the current user out of Statseeker

Help / Support

The Help / Support button offers two options:

  • Documentation - opens the Statseeker documentation library in a new browser tab. This library contains documentation and video guides for the latest version of Statseeker.

Report List

The Report List contains every stock report that the user has permission to view, and every custom report that the user has permission to view that has been flagged to be displayed in the Console. For details on Report configuration, see Custom Reports.

Group Filter

The Group Filter contains the default interface groups and every group, created manually or through auto-group creation, that the user has permission to see. These groups can be passed through to reports as a filter to focus the report upon the selected group or groups. The list can be filtered via the search field above the list. For details on creating and populating groups, see:

For further information on the relationship between users and groups, and how to use grouping to manage the visibility of your network that a user has through Statseeker, see Users and Groups.

Device Filter

The Device Filter contains every device on your network that Statseeker has access to, including references to retired devices. The list can be filtered via the search field above the list and selections from the device list are passed through to reports as a filter to focus the report upon the selected device/devices.

The Device list can display the device name, IP address or the sysName, as determined by the .

Time Filter

The specified time filters are applied to default 'event based' reports (ping, ifOperStatus, ifAdminStatus, threshold breaches, etc.) and all custom reports that do not have an embedded timefilter. For details on creating and using time filters, see:

The time filter in the Console is comprised of three elements:

  • Favorites - a drop-down list of saved time filters
  • Time Filter Creation - fields and lists used to create a custom time filter
  • Advanced Time Filter Editor - pencil icon () opens the Advanced Time Filter Editor which can be used to create and test complex time filters

For details on time filters, creating favorites and using the Advanced Time Filter Editor, see: Time Filters.
