DNA: Recent Events (Logs)



This article describes the Recent Events card of the Datto Networking Appliance's (DNA) GUI. 


  • Datto Networking Appliance (DNA)


The Recent Events card shows recent system events, Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP), and web filter activity on your Datto appliance.

To access the Recent Events card, log into the DNA web interface, and click Status, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: Status

You will see the Recent Events card displayed at the bottom of the page. The Recent Event card contains three tabs:


The System tab captures system events, such as the WAN and LTE interfaces going up and down, the appliance's firmware status, and the system boot time.

The IDP tab displays a history of your Datto appliance's Snort Network Intrusion Detection & Prevention deep packet inspection log activity. As packets enter the network, the DNA inspects each of them for potential malicious activity, and filters them if it detects that they may be harmful.

Web Filters

The Web Filters tab lists web access requests to sites blocked by the DNA's web filtering technology. The logs show the time the device received the request, the address requested, and the IP address sending the request.
