Common Event Manager
- Common events should be generically named so that they can be re-used for a wide variety of devices. For example, if a common event is being created for a log message that describes a successful connection to an FTP server, the common event should be named so that the FTP server type is irrelevant.
- Good Name: FTP Connection Succeeded
- Bad Name: Gene6 FTP Connection Succeeded
- Common event names should always have the first letter of each word capitalized to make viewing common events in analysis tools more consistent.
