Arista switch Analysis App automatically Collects - Reads - Parses - Analyzes - Reports all Arista switches generated log data of the server and presents a comprehensive automatic predefined set of Reports, Dashboards and Gadgets. Once you Setup and configure the Arista App, you will be redirected to the dashboards where you will have graphs about: errors occurred, users behavior, interfaces utilization, logins, ssh connections and much more. You later use XpoLog built in Analytics features to zero in on errors and take actions to improve your system's uptime. Arista switches system logs data can be viewed, filtered and searched via the main XpoLog console.
