MetaDefender Kiosk Dashboard

OPSWAT Central Management's MetaDefender Kiosk Dashboard gives a general overview of the status and activities of all managed MetaDefender Kiosk instances. The MetaDefender Kiosk Dashboard is located at Dashboard > MetaDefender Kiosk in the sidebar menu.

The MetaDefender Kiosk Dashboard function can optionally integrate with the ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) technology, which provides additional features as well as improves data collection performance.
To configure ELK settings for OPSWAT Central Management, please refer to Elasticsearch and Logstash server integration setting.
To configure ELK settings for MetaDefender Kiosk, please refer to Changing MetaDefender Kiosk Configuration and the MetaDefender Kiosk documentation for more details.

In Logstash server settings, the UDP protocol is recommended to have the collected data visualized correctly.
If TCP protocol must be selected, please ensure that the OPSWAT Central Management server can properly resolve the hostname of the managed MetaDefender Kiosk instances, e.g., the server and instances are all installed on the same network.

This section describes the activities of all managed MetaDefender Kiosk instances in a certain time frame. The users can customize the selected time frame to display up to a period of 30 days between a specific start and end date.
