Viewing the History of a Plugin

Last updated:

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

  1. On your Dashboard, select the computer to investigate.
  2. Select Actions
  3. Select View History

Note: Clicking the name of the plugin will also take you to Plugin History

How to View Plugin History
