The Allowed Source IPs chart is used as a sample to describe the Drilling In-Out functionality in detail. The same procedure applies for most of the predefined charts found in the MOREAL platform.
Sample Allowed Source IPs chart
Besides the Custom Filter input box that allows a user to specify a custom Drill Down Expression, this kind of chart provides Drilling In to options by the predefined Drill Down Expressions that can be accessed through an expandable drop-down select box.
Predefined Drill down Expressions
After having selected a Drill In option, a user can Drill In by clicking on the chart area. For instance, assume that a user has selected the Allowed Services Drill In option to have a view of the amount of traffic generated by each service that have been used from any given IP. For instance, a user may select to view which services – and how intensively in terms of generated traffic – have been used from an IP by simply clicking on the pie sector labelled with the aforementioned IP address. The result of such a user action is illustrated in the following image. To backtrack to previous chart, the user should use the Drill Out button that becomes active after a user has used a Drill In option.
The result chart after a user has selected Allowed Services from the predefined Drill Down Expressions and clicked on an IP on the original chart to Drill In. Notice that the Drill Out button becomes active for use after Drilling In.
