Server Event Groups

The server’s events are grouped in event groups. Grouping facilitates operations on multiple events, and is done based according to various criteria.

Below is the reference of available Server Event Groups.

Administration

Events emitted by actions done by local administrators or by the process itself. All events have an avatar data field.

Authenticated

Events emitted by authenticated accounts. All events have an avatar data field.

Client-side

Events emitted by the client side file transfer operations.

Compat

Failure

Events generated by a failed operation. Any failed operation, critical or non critical.

Failure-high

Events generated by failures with a high impact on server operation. This can be configuration or operational errors.

Failure-specific

Failures which don't have details attached.

File-operation

Events generated by file handling operations. They can be both server-side or client-side operations. When the events are generated by a server-side component, operating in a chrooted/locked filesytem, the path data field is set to the virtual path of the file on which the operation is performed. The 'real_path' data field is set to the full path of that file, as present to the normal file system.
