Our question relates to the ordering of the alerts on history of the Net- Master Alert Monitor.
When we access the history without alert filtering the order prioritizes the exhibiting of the most recent date. But when filtering is used by specific severity (for example) the order is modified and exhibits the oldest date--what can generate excessive time to load the screen. We ask if there is the possibility to alter this behavior on the alert history so that with filtering it be ordered from the newest date--as it occurs without filtering.
These notes are from L2 Support: -
The current code is working as designed--in that if on the alert history screen--once a filter command is issued it makes the display in as- cending sequence. There is nothing we can do about that but there is a circumvention.
Try the following when a user wants to change a filter but continue to be placed at the very last alerts:
From anywhere in the product do:
where filter is the name of the filter desired. E.g.: =/alh.b;sev1 would bring up alert history with dates in descending sequence using filter SEV1.
Notice that =/alh.b alone takes user to alert history without a filter. The use of the semicolon in the command allows the filter name to be passed to the command.
Also there is the SORT command. After doing the FILTER command the user could do a SORT on the date--like:
