Report Views


Sensei has rich report views which allow you to analyze both the big picture and the detailed per-connection events. The reports may be filtered to display only the data you wish to view.

Summarized traffic data and threat activity sessions in your network may be viewed at different time intervals. With the help of Sensei’s reporting capabilities, you can quickly identify network security threats across your network(s).

To view the reports of a node:

  • Select the Node
  • Click Reports on the left sidebar menu
