Events, Alerts, and Situations

Moogsoft Enterprise ingests events from your monitoring sources or managers and converts them to Moogsoft Enterprise events. The system de-duplicates related events into alerts. Based upon your clustering algorithms, they system groups alerts into Situations.

Definitions

Event: An event is any log, status or change event generated by a third-party monitoring tool, that is sent to Moogsoft Enterprise for processing. It also means an indication of state change that the system can listen for.

Alert: An alert is a de-duplicated event or an instance of new data coming into Moogsoft Enterprise.

Situation: A Situation is a cluster of alerts grouped together by the algorithmic clustering logic.
