They are shown, however, according to the date and time shown on the user interface you have been working with on a particular node to set the Date Filter.
For example, you select Today in the Date Filter on a node in Amsterdam at 7 p. m. local time.
This means all alerts that occurred during the last 19 hours are shown. For a node in New York, local time is 1 p. m. at the time you set the filter.
Alerts that occurred on the New York node are then shown for the last 19 hours, not for the last 13 hours, which would correspond to what Today is for the New York node.
Filters alerts according to alert message types and strings within the message texts.
The filter applies as soon as you have set the filter options.
Set these options in the following way:
