View Search Results in the Chart View

When you run a search in Manager, the results appear in the Search results pane. You can view the search results in List view or Chart view.

The Chart viewillustrates the distribution of your search results over time.

When should I use the Chart View?

Use the Chart view to visualize the number of events that ocur in a given time interval. At a glance, you can see where activity occurred and, sometimes more importantly, where there was no activity at all.

This is a good way to quickly identify potential points of interest to investigate.

How does the Chart View Work?

  • The x-axis of the chart is Time, which is the duration of the entire recording or the section of the recording you searched in.
  • The y-axis is Density, which is the number of events that occurred at any point in time.
  • Each circle (on a line graph) marks the number of events that occurred at that sampling point in time. The sampling interval, which is the space between circles or the width of each bar, is determined by the resolution (or scale) of the chart.
  • The following figure and callouts explain the parts of the Chart view.
