Monitor system activities

System Insight provides information about the important system activities that you performed or that occurred over a period of the last three months. You can use the tabs at the top of the graph to obtain details for the current month and for the last two months. System Insight displays the information in the Graphs window. The Graphs window displays each activity as icon or stripe. The description for each icon or stripe appears at the bottom of the graph. You can use the tabs at the top of the graph to obtain details for the current month and for the last two months.

Norton monitors your system performance. If it detects an increased usage of system resources by any program or process, it notifies you with performance alerts. Performance alerting works only when the Performance Monitoring option and Performance Alerting option are turned on.

Performance alerting notifies you with information about the program name and resources that the program uses excessively. The Details & Settings link in the performance notification alert lets you view additional details about the resource consumption by the program. The File Insight window opens and displays the reputation details of the file, the origin of the file, the process ID, and the complete resource usage list of the program. From the File Insight window, you can choose to exclude the program from being monitored. You can use the Settings option in the File Insight window to turn off the Performance Alerting option.

You can use the tabs at the top of the Events graph to obtain details for the current month and for the last two months. The Graphs window displays each activity as icon or stripe. The description for each icon or stripe appears at the bottom of the graph. The pop-up that appears when you move the mouse pointer over an icon provides you the details about the activity. The details include the date on which an activity was performed and the number of such activities that you performed on that date. The View Details link provides additional details of the activity in the Security History window.
