  1. Define Event type filter.
    This step could be performed in Administrator->Splunk Setup->Upload scheme.

Filters can be defined based on Group Def/EVENT_TYPE name or category. Both inclusive and exclusive options are supported:

Following categories are available for filtering:

There are 4 filters available OOB right after PowerConnect installation. Those have prefix '$' and corresponds to Group Def/Event type categories.

2. Assign created filter to the endpoint

On the left side of the screen double-click on necessary connection.

Select the filter from search-help and confirm your choice.

3. Save changes.

Once setup is done, events will flow according to defined filter. Empty filter means all events are flowing to the endpoint.
