Save your frequent nDepth searches for future use using the Save and Save As commands in the nDepth explorer. Use a similar procedure to modify any of the default saved searches.

To save an nDepth search for future use:

  1. Open your LEM Console and log in to your LEM manager as an auditor or administrator.
  2. Click the Explore tab, and then click nDepth.
  3. Examine the results to see all alerts within the last ten minutes.
  4. Use the Components pane on the left to refine your search parameters, and then extend the time frame for the search.
  5. Click Search to retrieve your new results.

    Searches that require several minutes to complete or searching several events can result in the search producing time outs or no results.

  6. Click File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/0E0/110/Button-Gear(Gray)_15x12.png in the nDepth toolbar and select Save As.

    If you are modifying an existing saved search, click Save.

  7. Enter a report name, and then click OK.

    SolarWinds recommends that you include the time frame in your search name, as saved searches always run with the saved time frame by default. For example, enter All Firewall Alerts - Last 24 Hours.

  8. Locate your search in the Saved Searches pane.
  9. Execute the search when required.

You can export your saved search for disaster recovery or import the search to another user when they are logged in to the console.

Searches can be exported, deleted, or scheduled. A scheduled search can email the results to a defined user. If you need to edit a saved search, delete and re-create the search.
