Event Correlation

The Event Correlation widget displays events from multiple data sources on a single display with one timeline, for easy correlation. The data is displayed in the dashboard as soon as it is available from its source.

Some data sources may have a time delay based on their source (for example, log events). However, they will appear on the dashboard timeline under the time they actually occurred on the original host/application, normalized to GMT time. All events on the Event Correlation widget are displayed in GMT time, as shown at the bottom of the widget.

To stay current, the display scrolls to the right in real time as time passes and events arrive. The vertical blue line on the correlation display indicates the current time.

Further navigation is possible in the Event Correlation widget using the control buttons at the bottom right of the widget:

  • Place the cursor over the widget display area, and the display scrolling pauses, allowing you to hover or select/click on a particular event
  • ”Grab” the display and drag it left or right to see events in an adjacent time period
  • Click the pause button at the lower right of the widget to pause the scrolling. Then click the plus or minus button to adjust the zoom so you can see a different time segment on the screen. When you’re done investigating, click the play button to resume the display scrolling in real time.

Each event, or group of events, reported by Workbench on the Event Correlation widget is represented by a colored dot. You can get more information about an event in several ways:

  • Hover the mouse over an event dot to see summary information.
    • If the dot represents a single event, a summary of the event text is displayed in the hover text.
    • If the dot represents multiple events, only a count of how many events are included is displayed in the hover text.

  • Single click on the event to see a Correlations pop-up diagram that indicates other events which might be correlated to the selected event. This pop-up only appears if there are correlated events to display. Otherwise, the hover text “No Correlated Events” will be displayed.

  • Double-click to open an additional "widget" with detailed information about the event selected. The details widget type will vary based on the type of event selected (Alarms, Changes, Log Events, or Channel Monitoring). Select the Alarms, Changes, Log Events, or Channel Monitoring tab on this page for additional information on these event types and the associated widgets.

You can also double-click on a "dot" (event) in either the main Event Correlation widget display or the small Correlations pop-up graphic. The details widget is displayed.

Alarms data

In the Event Correlation widget, you can hover and drill down on an event in the Alarms data row. The details "widget" appears when you double-click on an alarm event. It displays various properties of the alarms including priority, status, and arrival time. In addition to showing details in bold for the selected event, the details widget also shows information about surrounding alarm events to give additional context.

Configuration Changes data

In the Event Correlation widget, you can hover and drill down on an event in the Changes data row. The details "widget" appears when you double-click on a configuration change event. Various properties of the configuration changes will display including the object changed, the new value and the user who made the change. In addition to showing details for the event selected, this details widget also shows information about surrounding change events to give additional context.

To view the name of the user who made each configuration change, Message Server needs to be added as a connection under the Configuration Server to which the Workbench Server connects. If this connection is not defined, the Changed By column will display “N/A” for all rows.

Log Events data

Log events collected by the Workbench Log Extractor appear on the Log Events row in Event Correlation widget. Hover on a dot in the Log Events row to see high-level information about that event.

When you double-click on a dot in the Log Events row of the Event Correlation widget, the Log Analysis console opens in a new browser tab, and it displays the corresponding log file and highlights the details about that log event in red.

The Log Analysis console allows you to see other events surrounding this log event in the log file, and perform additional log analysis. For additional information on this view, please see the Log Analysis section in this guide.

Double-click to view Log Analysis (with details for that log event in red)

Note: To allow Log Analysis by clicking on a log event in the Event Correlation widget, you must have previously configured the Workbench Server application to have connections to the Workbench Log Extractor applications. For steps on how to do this, please go to Deployment and view the Provisioning Workbench Server section.
