The following table describes the function of each option on the nDepth explorer toolbar. Each option provides a different view of the data from the most recent search.

In any explorer view, if a particular chart configuration does not logically apply to the data you are exploring, that chart is disabled.

Tool View Description
File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/Icon-Dashboard.png Dashboard

Displays each nDepth view as a small widget. You can minimize and maximize each widget or edit the chart widgets to change their appearance. This is the default view.

Displays the items that appear most often in the data as a series of categorized boxes that correspond with the data categories in the Refine Fields list.

The box size in each category is associated with its relative frequency. The more often an item occurs, the larger its box appears. You can hover over small boxes to open a tooltip and display its contents or click a box to create or append a search based on that item.

File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/Icon-LineChart.png Line Charts A group of widgets that display your most frequent data items as a series of line graphs. The height of point on the graph corresponds with the item's relative frequency. The more often an item occurs, the higher the point appears on the graph. You can point to an item on the graph to show information about it. You can also click a point on the graph to create or append a search based on that item.
File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/Icon-PieChart.png Pie Charts A group of widgets that display your most frequent data items as a series of pie charts. The size of each pie wedge corresponds with the relative frequency. The more often an item occurs, the larger its wedge appears. You can hover over a wedge to view additional information or click a wedge to create or append a search based on that item.
File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/Icon-BubbleChart.png Bubble Charts

A group of widgets that display your most frequent data items as a series of circles or bubbles. The size of each bubble corresponds with the relative frequency. The more often an item occurs, the larger its bubble appears. You can hover over a bubble to display additional information or click a bubble to create or append a search based on that item.

A graphical interface used to create and refine complex searches. You can drag items from the nDepth list pane directly into the Search Builder Conditions box to configure complex searches. Search Builder is similar to the Filter Creation tool.

nDepth History Pane

Each nDepth explorer search adds an item to the Explore view History pane.

The File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/Icon-History-nDepth-Alert_16x14.png represents an event data search. The File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/Icon-History-nDepth-LogMssg_18x15.png represents an original log message search.

The following illustration displays an nDepth search of event data. When you hover over a history item, you can view the number of search results and your search string text.

File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/060/010/040/History.png

A new search adds a history item. If you click an earlier history item, the system takes you back to that search and does not make a new item. After you modify your nDepth search parameters and perform a new search, that search becomes a new history item.
