Watchman Monitoring stores plugin reporting history data.
As computers report the status of their plugins, duplicate "no problems found" reports displace any matching "no problems found" report.
The result is a history of the plugin consisting of daily reports when no problems are found and hourly reports when an error is detected.
Viewing Plugin History
- On your Dashboard, select the computer to investigate.
- Select Actions
- Select View History
Note: Clicking the name of the plugin will also take you to Plugin History
