MAV-BD records any actions in its log files and reports the event in the main window of the console underneath the status area. Along with the action category and text description, events use an easy to identify traffic light and icon notification system. Green for successful operation, yellow for warning (non-critical issue) and red for a critical issue. This allows you to easily see the actions performed, from definition file updates to threat discovery and their status.

If an event contains multiple entries, click on its down arrow to expand the event and view more detailed information. Click the up arrow to close.

Depending on the event type, the entries can have the option to View Log in a new dialog. For example, the Contextual Scans dialog returns sections on the scan Target, Results and Statistics.

To return to the main window, click the back arrow at the top left corner of the dialog.
