Events provide a realtime and historical insight into your devices and networks at a granular level. They are easily filterable and searchable logs that allow you to troubleshoot issues. We process events that are raised by your devices at regular intervals and store events for 60 days. Therefore, you can view events even when your device is offline.
To learn more about events and a list of possible events, see Events overview.
Now that you have viewed the overview tab, you can click the Details tab at the top of the page to view more details about the device. The following information is included on the Details page:
- Device Location—You can view a map to see exactly where the device is located.
- Device Screenshot—Click the camera icon to see what is currently playing on the device in real-time.
- Device Charts—These charts provide an overview of the device’s memory usage per application, network usage, and disk usage percentage. These charts can show these stats over the last 7 days, last 24 hours, and last hour. Hover over the chart to view a more granular breakdown.
The device’s internal state can be viewed in the Internal State tab. The JSON is categorized into fields and there is a description column that outlines the import information found in each field. You can click Retrieve State to retrieve the most recent internal state of the device.
This tab helps you to identify possible errors or issues regarding the device. The logs can be filtered by the following categories: All, Info, Warn, and Error. The messages can be expanded to show the corresponding JSON. In the Filter By Tag drop-down, you have the ability to filter by tag and search through the logs.

If your Windows or Linux device loses internet connectivity, the Cortex player stores events and proof of plays (PoPs) locally. Once the device regains internet connectivity, it sends PoPs to the ad server. This ensures that ads that were played when the device was offline are accounted for in ad platform reporting. Additionally, events that were raised when the device was offline appear in Fleet once the device regains internet connectivity.
This is compatible with the Unified Ad Serving (UAS) app.
