This view provides raw historic data about generated events (alerts). The Alerts_V View provides metadata about the alert (including severity). For comprehensive details about the alert, see ALERTS_DETAILS_V View.

This view is not supported with S3 Data Exporting.

When Lacework generates an event (alert), it returns a row in the Alerts_V view with information about the event.

Each row contains file information as listed in the columns.
