The event database stores information about events that occur in the View Connection Server host or group, View Agents, and the View Administrator, and notifies you of the number of events on the dashboard. You can examine the events in detail on the Events screen.


Events are listed in the View Administrator interface for a limited time period. After this time, the events are only available in the historical database tables. You can use Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle database reporting tools to examine events in the database tables. For more information, see the VMware View Integration document.

Create and configure the event database as described in the VMware View Installation document.


In View Administrator, select Monitoring > Events.


(Optional) In the Events window, you can select the time range of the events, apply filtering to the events, and sort the listed events by one or more of the columns.
