ACC Widgets

The widgets on each tab are interactive. You can set filters and drill down into the display to customize the view and focus on the information you need.
Each widget is structured to display the following information:
You can sort the data by bytes, sessions, threats, count, users, content, applications, URLs, malicious, benign, grayware, phishing, file(name)s, data, profiles, objects. The available options vary by widget.
The graphical display options are treemap, line graph, horizontal bar graph, stacked area graph, stacked bar graph, and map. The available options vary by widget and the interaction experience varies with each graph type. For example, the widget for Applications using Non-Standard Ports allows you to choose between a treemap and a line graph.
To drill down into the display, click on the graph. The area you click on becomes a filter and allows you to zoom in and view more granular information about that selection.
The detailed view of the data used to render the graph displays in a table below the graph.
You can click and set a local filter or a global filter for elements in the table. With a local filter, the graph is updated and the table is sorted by that filter.
With a global filter, the view across the ACC pivots to display only the information specific to your filter.
The following are actions available in the title bar of a widget:
  • Maximize view—Allows you to enlarge the widget and view it in a larger screen space. In the maximized view, you can see more than the top ten items that display in the default widget view.
  • Set up local filters—Allows you to add filters that refine the display within the widget. See Working with Filters—Local Filters and Global Filters.
  • Jump to logs—Allows you to directly navigate to the logs (MonitorLogs<log-type>). The logs are filtered using the time period for which the graph is rendered.
If you set local and global filters, the log query concatenates the time period and filters and displays only logs that match your filter set.
  • Export—Allows you to export the graph as a PDF.
For a description of each widget, see the details on using the ACC.
