AI Event Correlation and Root Cause Analysis

Automatically group redundant alerts. Find the signal in the noise. Take action faster.

How It Works

How it Works Events

Find the signal in the noise

Virtually all IT operations professionals are familiar with ‘event storms’—a term for when a problem triggers hundreds (or sometimes thousands) of redundant alerts from interconnected systems, making it harder to pinpoint the underlying cause. AI event correlation makes sense of the noise, grouping redundant notifications and isolating the likely root cause of the problem. When an issue arises, such as an outage, you can avoid spending hours investigating a long list of redundant alerts. Instead, go to the tool's Overview page, which presents a birds-eye view of the current status of your business services and calls out Situations—groups of related events—that require your attention.

How it Works Situations

Assess the situation

Click the Situations tab to see a more detailed view of current Situations, including severity, timeline, and the number of individual events that have been grouped into each. The tool groups events in two ways: by using machine learning (ML) and by referencing event policies that you can configure to control grouping logic. The "Type" icon in this view indicates whether the event grouping was done by ML or by referencing your event policy.

You can dive deeper into each Situation to see related metrics, logs, and changes.

How it Works Root Cause

Take action on the root cause

The tool also identifies which individual event is the likeliest root cause of the underlying issue. This is based on calculating the impact of the event, and the event with the greatest impact is chosen as the probable source of the larger problem. You can quickly take action on the root cause by triggering Automated Remediation scripts directly from the tool or set policies to automatically trigger Automated Remediation scripts when certain conditions are met.

4 Reasons You’ll Love It

The system intelligently groups related events, saving you the time of opening and closing redundant tickets.

Instead of enlisting multiple IT professionals to manually identify the root cause, the system investigates automatically, saving time, effort, and money.

When paired with Proactive Outage Alerting and Automated Remediation, the system can notify you of a problem, identify the likeliest source of the problem, and trigger a course of action to resolve it.

The capability works out of the box and does not require any special configuration or training.
