    • The left pane of the Events display contains icons displaying the highest severity event found for the computer, with red for critical events, orange for major events, and yellow for minor events.

    • The Count column is the number of times the event has occurred in the interval being displayed – clicking on the + icon to the left of the Count displays all the events for the interval.
    • Clicking on an Event in the right pane displays the text of the event in the bottom pane along with a time line graph for the monitored metric, if applicable, as seen in the screenshot below.
