Status: Log Reports
About the Page
This page gives you an easy form to query the history of clients that have connected to the Access Server.

Query By Start Time
At the top-left is Query by Start Time. This section allows you to query the log using a time range with the following three options:
- Do not filter log on Start Time: No filtering via start time.
- Last ___ hours: Search for entries in the last specified hours, days, or minutes. Define the amount of time then use the drop-down menu (default is hours) to choose to query by days, hours, or minutes.
- From ___ to ___: Define a time interval which ranges from the specified hours of the current day. For example, a user can query all logs that were submitted between 11:00 (11 am) and 20:30 (8:30 pm). This will generate all logs recorded between those times.
Query By Start Time
At the top-right is Filter by Number of Log Entries. This section limits the number of logs returned and queries by earliest or latest entries. Use the drop menu to choose first (earliest) or last (latest).
Once you set the parameters for your query, press the query log button:
Or press the download query button to download results as a CSV.
Once you have downloaded the log as a CSV file, you may prefer using Microsoft Excel, Google Spreadsheet, or your preferable CSV-supported application, for a better visual appearance of the file.
After querying, a table of results should appear at the bottom of the page.

Sorting and Filtering Query Results
The headers of the table contain arrows that allow you to sort the entries in ascending/descending order. You can also add additional filters to the query by inputting valid search parameters into the filter records field:
Filter records field.
The query filters as you type characters in this field. To remove the filter and display all of the original result set, delete all characters or enter only a space.
