The data is displayed for each fetch action and is auto-refreshed based on the auto-refresh rate definition.

If a specific adapter has only an inactive connection, or the adapter never fetched data, the specific adapter is not displayed in the adapters filter.

The following columns are displayed for each fetch action:

  • Adapter Name - The adapter which fetched the data
  • Status - Presents the fetch status
    • Contains the following values:
      • Fetch started - The fetch process was initiated.
      • Fetch ended successfully - The fetch ended successfully with no errors, and results are presented.
      • Fetch ended with errors - The fetch ended but there was one or more errors.
      • Fetch failed - The fetch process failed.
      • Connection failed - There was a connection error for the specific connection.
      • Fetch skipped - When there is a Gateway configured, and the Gateway status was disconnected.
      • Fetch terminated - The fetch process was terminated by the user.
  • Fetch Events - The number and type of Fetch Events. The type of events are indicated by a color that indicates the severity. Mouse over to see how many of each event type. Click on this column to open the Adapter Fetch Events page filtered by the specific fetch for the adapter.
  • Compute Node - The specific Compute Node the adapter and connection were initiated from (displayed in Customer-hosted (on-premise) deployments).
  • Connection Label - The connection label (if configured)
  • Connection ID - The connection ID.
  • Start Time - The fetch process start time.
  • End Time - The fetch process end time.
  • Duration - The calculated total fetch duration, in HH:DD:MM format.
  • Total Devices - The total number of non unique devices fetched
  • Ignored Devices - The number of devices that were not seen by the source in the last X hours (X is defined in Adapter Advanced Settings).
  • Total Users - The total number of non unique users fetched
  • Ignored Users - The number of users that were not seen by the source in the last X hours (X is defined in Adapter Advanced Settings).
  • Total "Asset Type" - The total number of non unique assets fetched is showed for each additional asset type supported for your system.
  • Discovery Cycle - The identifier of the discovery cycle in which the activity occurred. This is presented as the start date and time of the discovery cycle.
  • Last Connection Update - Shows if the adapter or the connection configuration were updated since the last fetch. The field will either show Yes or No. If the connection was updated, Yes is a link that opens the Activity Log page filtered to the change made, displayed by the start date of the previous fetch start time. The Message column shows details of the old configuration and the new configuration, mouse over to see them, or Export to CSV.
    • Connection update can be:
      • Configuration change to the adapter connection itself.
      • Configuration change on the adapter level that affects the connection, for instance if the connection is not customized and ignores an adapter configuration change.

Terminate Fetch

Sometimes the Fetch process might take a long time, and you therefore want to stop the Fetch process of an adapter connection.
To stop the Fetch process

  1. From the Adapter Fetch History page hover over one adapter, or select one or more adapters.
  2. Select Terminate Fetch.

TErminateFetchADapN.png

The system terminates the fetch process of the adapter connections selected if they are in the middle of the fetch process.

A message is displayed in the Adapter Fetch History pane showing that the adapter fetch was terminated.

Note:

Terminate Fetch only stops the current Fetch process. If you do not want this adapter connection to be fetched in the future, you need to set the adapter as inactive in the Adapter page

You can see which adapter connections were terminated by filtering by Fetch Terminated in the Fetch Status dropdown.

Filtering

  • You can filter on the values to be displayed in the table. You can then use the filters to create queries based on the filters and also save them as queries which can be used later on. Read more about queries based on filters.

  • The following filters are available:

    • Adapter Name - To view the fetch history of a specific adapter. Once you filter by adapter name, the Connection label, Connection ID and Compute node displayed are those relevant for that adapter.

Exporting Adapter Fetch History to CSV

You can export the Adapter Fetch History table data to a CSV file. To export the results to a CSV file:

In the Adapter Fetch History page, click Export CSV on the right side of the page just above the table.

The Export Data screen opens:
ExportCSVADapterFetchHist

File name - Set a name for the CSV file. A default name appears for the CSV file, with the format “axonius-adapter_fetch_history< date >T< time >UTC.csv” You can change the file name if you wish.

Select Export associated fetch events to include information about the fetch events in the CSV file created.

Maximum rows (optional, default: 1048500) - Specify the maximum number of rows to be included in the CSV file. When you enter a value the generated CSV file includes the top x rows, based on the specified values. Otherwise the generated CSV file includes the default maximum rows, set as 1048500 (note that this value is the maximum value supported by Excel, setting a higher value generates a file that can't be displayed fully or correctly in Excel).

Click Export, the file is created and downloaded to your system.
