Kaspersky Security Center

Monitoring traffic lights and logged events in Administration Console

14 April 2024

ID 92536_1

Administration Console allows you to quickly assess the current status of Kaspersky Security Center and managed devices by checking traffic lights. The traffic lights are shown in the workspace of the Administration Server node, on the Monitoring tab. The tab provides six information panels with traffic lights and logged events. A traffic light is a colored vertical bar on the left side of a panel. Each panel with a traffic light corresponds to a specific functional scope of Kaspersky Security Center (see the table below).

Scopes covered by traffic lights in Administration Console
