Start, stop, and pause filters in LEM

Updated: September 15, 2017

This topic describes how to start, stop, and pause filters in the LEM console.

About starting, stopping, and pausing filters

Filters starts collecting events from the moment they are turned on. Turn off LEM filters that you do not need to conserve system resources. Pause a filter if you need to inspect a set of event messages and you do not want to see new incoming messages scrolling across the grid. You can pause one filter or all filters in the console.
