Events Dashboards

The Events Dashboards in Sysdig Secure provide event trend analysis and at-a-glance summaries of top policies, rules, namespaces, accounts, or users with event activity over the past 31 days. From the Overviews, you can drill down into specific event feeds and details to take action.


Sysdig Secure (SaaS) with data sources connected:

  • If a particular type of data source is not connected, the corresponding overview will show no data.
  • Only teams scoped to Entire Infrastructure will see the Dashboards.

Access Events Dashboards

To access Events Dashboards, log into Sysdig Secure (SaaS) and hover over Events in the left side bar.

There are four types of Events Dashboards to choose from:

  • Events Overview: All sources.
  • Kubernetes Events
  • Cloud Events
  • Host & Container Events: For environments using containers without Kubernetes orchestration

Review the top policies and rules with events, and drill down into the Events feed or details to address them.

Review the top activity associated with data such as location or users, and drill down as needed.

The events displayed match the permissions of the team under which you logged in.

Filter Events

Select top-level filters to focus on particular subset of event data, as appropriate.

All of the context filters apply to the widget on the page and any drill-down pages.

By Severity

Toggle the coloured buttons on the top right of the dashboards to filter events by severity.

The severity levels are:

  • High: The red H button.
  • Medium: The orange M button.
  • Low: The yellow L button.
  • Info: The blue I button.

By Date

Use the date selector or double-click on a day to see the Event panel results filtered for just that day.

Use the Date bar at the bottom of the page to adjust from six hours up to two weeks worth of data at a time.

Each top trend panel reports on the behavior of events over the past 31 days.

By default, the trend graphs are set to 1 week.

Page-specific filters are detailed in the panel descriptions below.

Events Overview

The Events Overview panel provides:

  • Top row: the common severity filter and the download button to capture a PDF of the panel display.

  • Data source summary: a summary of the data sources and their connected status.

  • Events by Severity trend graph: Change the date selection at the bottom of the page if desired, or hover over a day to see the event number summarized by severity for that day.

Company Security Usage

The top trend panels are designed to guide Security workflows.

They present an overview of:

  • Trends of Events in the environment over the past 31 days (in up to two-week increments)
  • Policies and rules with most events, with up to 20 listings.
  • Event data by date or date range
  • Clusters, Namespaces, Workloads, Cloud account IDs, Users, hosts, and containers with the most events detected

This data allow security managers to answer questions about their risk posture, such as:

  • Are my event levels trending down?
  • What is my most event-prone environment?
