  • Publication number: 20160105335
    Abstract: Services in an operating environment are represented by stored service definitions that identify entities that perform the service. Entity definitions identify machine data pertaining to the entity. A key performance indicator (KPI) of the service characterizes the service on the whole or some aspect of it. Each KPI is defined by a search query that derives a value from machine data identified in the entity definitions. Processing devices cause display of a service-monitoring page having a services summary region and a services aspects region. The summary region displays interactive summary tiles that each correspond to a service and present information about an aggregate KPI that characterizes the service. The aspects region displays interactive aspect tiles that each correspond to a KPI characterizing some aspect of an associated service. Additional information may be included in the service-monitoring page and interaction features enable a user to navigate to enhanced information displays.

  • Publication number: 20160105334
    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.

  • Patent number: 9294361
    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.

  • Patent number: 9210056
    Abstract: One or more processing devices cause display of a service-monitoring page having a services summary region and a services aspects region. The services summary region contains an ordered plurality of interactive summary tiles, each summary tile corresponding to a respective service and providing a character or graphical representation of at least one value for an aggregate key performance indicator (KPI) characterizing the respective service as a whole. The services aspects region contains an ordered plurality of interactive aspect tiles, each aspect tile corresponding to a respective aspect KPI and providing a character or graphical representation of one or more values for the respective aspect KPI, each aspect KPI having an associated service and typifying performance for an aspect of the associated service.

  • Publication number: 20150341212
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system that facilitates the processing of network data. During operation, the system causes for display a graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring the generation of time-series event data from network packets captured by one or more remote capture agents. Next, the system causes for display, in the GUI, a first set of user-interface elements containing a set of statistics associated with one or more event streams that comprise the time-series event data. The system then causes for display, in the GUI, one or more graphs comprising one or more values from the set of statistics. Finally, the system causes for display, in the GUI, a value of a statistic from the set of statistics based on a position of a cursor over the one or more graphs.

  • Publication number: 20150295778
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system that facilitates the processing of network data. During operation, the system obtains a set of event streams from one or more remote capture agents over one or more networks, wherein the set of event streams comprises time-series event data generated from network packets captured by the one or more remote capture agents. Next, the system causes for display, within a graphical user interface (GUI), a first set of user interface elements, wherein the first set of user interface elements includes event stream information for an event stream in the set of event streams and a first graph of a metric associated with the time-series event data in the event stream. The system then updates the first graph in real-time with the time-series event data from the one or more remote capture agents.

  • Publication number: 20150295780
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system that facilitates the processing of network data. During operation, the system causes for display, on a computer system, a graphical user interface (GUI) for obtaining configuration information for configuring the generation of time-series event data from network packets captured by one or more remote capture agents. Next, the system causes for display, in the GUI, a first set of user-interface elements for managing one or more ephemeral event streams that contain temporarily generated time-series event data from the network packets, wherein managing the one or more ephemeral event streams comprises modifying an end time for terminating the capture of time-series event data in an ephemeral event stream. The system then updates the configuration information based on input received through the first set of user-interface elements.

During operation, the system causes for display a graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring the generation of time-series event data from network packets captured by one or more remote capture agents. Next, the system causes for display, in the GUI, a first set of user-interface elements for managing one or more event streams containing the time-series event data, wherein managing the one or more event streams includes enabling the generation of a set of statistics from an event stream without subsequently storing and processing at least a first portion of the event stream by one or more components on a network. The GUI then updates the configuration information based on input received through the first set of user-interface elements.

During operation, the system causes for display a graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring the generation of time-series event data from network packets captured by one or more remote capture agents. Next, the system causes for display, in the GUI, a first set of user-interface elements for specifying a grouping of a set of event streams containing the time-series event data by an event stream attribute associated with the event streams. The system then causes for display, in the GUI, a second set of user-interface elements containing event stream information for one or more subsets of the event streams represented by the grouping of the event streams by the event stream attribute.

  • Patent number: 9146954
    Abstract: A processing device performs a search query to produce a search result set having entries having data items. Each data item has an ordinal position. A table, having rows and columns, is displayed in a graphical user interface. Each data item of a particular entry appears in a respective column of the same row of the table. 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 data item of the particular entry an element value 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.
