Abstract:Monitoring systems are able to capture thousands of events from a computer network. Some of those events may be particularly informative to ensure the correct operation of an application. We assume the user is interested in a specific class of events, called target events (e.g., communication link is down). We propose a system that generates a set of rules correlating each target event with events occurring previous to the target event within a specified time window interval. Such rules can be extremely helpful in elucidating the origin of target events. We conduct experiments to assess the accuracy of the induced rules for different types of target events in a real-world network environment. Our results show the accuracy of the induced rules generally above 80% when the time window interval is at least 20 minutes wide. Such results give strong empirical support to the validity of our approach.
