Monitoring

You can monitor an appliance when it executes the filtering that ensures web security for your network.

Monitoring is performed in different ways. Default monitoring on an appliance includes:

  • Dashboard — Displays key information on the appliance system and activities
  • Logging — Writes information about important events on an appliance into log files
  • Error handling — Takes measures when incidents and errors occur on an appliance

You can measure the performance of appliance functions and also use external devices for monitoring, such as a McAfee ePO server or an SNMP Agent.
