Sensors Management

The Sensors Status screen displays all the network sensors that are currently defined in the Server. You can find it under Settings

For each sensor, its status is displayed as well as its version (if available) and the timestamp in which this sensor has been checked.

Sensor Statuses


The sensor is operational and responsive, and data is being captured


The sensor is not accessible from the Server


The sensor is paused and is not collecting data


The sensor is operational and responsive but has not detected any traffic during the last 5 minutes.

Sensor Management Actions


Add a manually deployed sensor/download the files for manual deployment


Delete the definition of this sensor from the server

Note: This action would remove its definition without uninstalling the sensor software so it can be re-defined for future use

Define a New Sensor

To define a new sensor, go to select the  Configure button.

The Configure Sensor dialog appears. 

In the Host Name field, enter the name or IP address of a server on which a Sensor has been installed. 

In the Name field, it is possible to add a display name for the newly defined sensor.

If using a port other than the default port (9545), specify the port number in the Port field. If SSL-encrypted communication between the Server and the Network Sensor is required and has been configured in the Network Sensor installation, then select the Use SSL checkbox.
