Cookbook Example Using CValueRecipeV2

The following example demonstrates a Cookbook that uses a CValueRecipeV2 that splits alerts into clusters with both a source_id (hostname) and a description that are 50% similar. You control this under the components property:

matcher:{  
        components:[  
        {  
                name:"source_id",
                similarity:0.5,
        },
        {  
                name:"description",
                similarity:0.5,
        }
}

It also only creates a Situation from a seed alert with a Vertex Entropy value of 0.75 which indicates a node of high topological importance. You control the seed alert filter with this property:

seed_alert:"vertex_entropy = 0.75",

The full example Cookbook with both configurations is as follows:
