In the Alarms and Events view, click the Filter button to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to display alarms and events that meet a specific criteria.

This dialog box includes the following components:

    Note  All the following criteria support wildcards except Priority. You can use asterisk (*) and question mark (?) wildcards to expand the scope of the filter. The asterisk represents one or more characters, and the question mark represents a single character. For example, a* stands for all user names that start with letter a. a? also stands for all user names start with letter a, but these user names must have only two characters.
