  • Patent number: 10152561
    Abstract: A service monitoring system executing on one or more processors may have operations that are determined by control information. Control over the operation of the service monitoring system can be exerted through the use of a graphical interface. The graphical interface may present the control information of a new or existing correlation search definition for user interaction. The service monitoring system may maintain a data store of key performance indicator (KPI) data, where a KPI value in the data store is produced by a KPI-defining search query that derives the value from machine data associated with one or more entities that perform a monitored service. A correlation search definition of the service monitoring system determines how a search of the KPI data is conducted, how its data is evaluated to determine whether a triggering condition has been met, and, if so, determines what triggered action is to be initiated.

  • Patent number: 9838280
    Abstract: Processing devices receive a file having entries having data items separated by delimiters. Each data item has an ordinal position. The processing device(s) cause display of a table, having rows and columns, in a graphical user interface. Each data items of a particular entry appears in a respective column of the same row. Each column corresponds to the ordinal position of its respective data item. User input is received designating, for each respective column, a field name and an entity definition component type to which the respective column pertains, and stores for each of the data items of the particular entry a value of an element of an entity definition. The element has the element name designated for the respective column in which the data item appeared, and is associated with an entity definition component having the type designated for the respective column in which the data item appeared.

  • Publication number: 20170155558
    Abstract: Raw machine data are captured and may be organized as events. Entity definitions representing machine entities that perform a service identify the machine data pertaining to respective entities. KPI search queries each define a KPI. Each KPI search query derives one or more values for the KPI from machine data identified in the entity definitions. The derivation may be performed on a per-entity basis and on the aggregate. The derived values may then be translated into a state value domain using per-entity thresholds, aggregate thresholds, or a combination.

  • Publication number: 20160105330
    Abstract: One or more processing devices cause display of a graphical user interface (GUI) that includes a correlation search portion that enables a user to specify information for a key performance indicator (KPI) correlation search definition. The KPI correlation search definition includes search information and trigger determination information. The search information identifies KPI values, indicative of the KPI states, in a data store. The trigger determination information includes trigger criteria. The trigger determination evaluates the identified KPI values using the trigger criteria to determine whether to cause a defined action. A contribution threshold for a particular KPI definition is received via the GUI. The contribution threshold corresponds to a particular KPI state. The contribution threshold is stored as trigger criteria information.

  • Publication number: 20160104090
    Abstract: A GUI displays information about a service, such as a service in an IT environment, and the specification for a related key performance indicator (KPI). The service can be provided by a number of entities (e.g., servers) for which machine data is generated and collected. The KPI is defined by a search query that produces a KPI value from the relevant machine data. Thresholds can aid in translating KPI values into a simpler, and possibly, common set of state values (e.g., Normal, Warning, Critical). A user can supply via a GUI, one or more thresholds that are applied on a per-entity basis in the process of determining a state value for the KPI.
