Events, notifications, and reports
December 13, 2023
You can receive information about Kaspersky Security operation in the Kaspersky Security Center by using the following resources:
SVMs send service messages (events) containing information about Kaspersky Security operation to the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server. Information about events is saved in the Administration Server database.
Event importance levels are of the following types:
- Critical event. A critical event indicates the occurrence of a critical problem that may lead to data loss, an operational malfunction, or a critical error. It may indicate problems in the operation of Kaspersky Security or vulnerabilities in the protection of virtual machines.
- Error. This event indicates the occurrence of a serious problem, error or malfunction that occurred during operation of the application or while performing a procedure.
- Warning. This event requires attention because it emphasizes important situations in the operation of Kaspersky Security and may indicate a possible issue in the future.
- Info. This event informs about successful completion of an operation, proper functioning of the application, or completion of a procedure.
A notification is a message containing information about an event that occurred on an SVM. Notifications keep the user informed about application events in a timely manner. Kaspersky Security Center lets you select the event notification method and configure the settings of event notifications in the policy properties.
For detailed information on events and notifications, see the Kaspersky Security Center documentation.
Kaspersky Security Center uses events to generate different types of reports. You can use reports to obtain the details of infected files, changes to protection settings, and usage of license keys and databases. You can view reports in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
The virtual machine name displayed in reports and events of Kaspersky Security Center can be the name of the virtual machine or the path to it in the virtual infrastructure.
