The Events Explorer displays the most recent events generated by your infrastructure and services such as code deployments, service health, configuration changes, or monitoring alerts.
The Events Explorer displays all event types by default. You can filter your events by facets or search queries.
Click a row in the Events Explorer to open the event side panel, which shows tags and messages associated with the event.
The attributes tab of the side panel lists event attributes as JSON. Click on an attribute to add it to or exclude it from the existing query, or to add a column for this attribute.
Events attributes can be normalized or enriched at intake with processing pipelines.
Click Options to customize your Events Explorer:
Aug 11 15:58.08.000). A relative timestamp displays the time elapsed since the event (for example,
20 seconds ago).
The time frame selector controls the time range of events that are shown in the Explorer or Analytics, and sets the range of the timeline under the search bar.
Change the time range by selecting a preset range from the time frame dropdown, or by entering a custom time range.
Because all search parameters are contained within the URL, you can share your view by sharing the URL.
Events search uses the logs search syntax.
Like logs search, events search permits:
source:(github OR chef)
host:(i-0ade23e6 AND db.myapp.com)
us-east-1aAWS availability zone (AZ).
See Logs Search Syntax for more details.
Datadog indexes event attributes as facets or measures that are accessible from the Event Explorer facet side-panel, analytics, and monitors.
A facet displays the distinct members of an attribute or a tag and provides basic analytics, such as the number of events represented. Facets allow you to pivot or filter your datasets based on a given attribute. To filter, select the values that you want to see.
To create a facet, use the “Add a facet” button in the left side panel.
Once you add the facet, the value of this attribute is stored for all new views, and you can use it in the search bar and facet side-panels. You can also use it to group by in event monitors and graph widgets.
