Situation Visualization

Caution

The Visualize tab is a "Labs Feature". Enable the Visualize feature in Labs to view it in the Situation Room. See Configure Labs Feature for details. Your role must have the "sig_visualize" permission to use this feature. See Manage Roles for details.

Currently, Moogsoft AIOps does not handle fully alerts that a user has manually added to a Situation in this Early Access version of the Visualize feature. For example, manually added alerts do not display in a component diagram if their similarity to the reference alert is below the threshold but they will appear in another diagram if their similarity is above the threshold for that component.

The Visualize tab in Situation Rooms allows administrators and implementers to see which process created a Situation and the similarity of the alerts within the Situation. You can use this information to adjust your Moogsoft AIOps configuration to improve the relevance of the Situations it creates.

This tab displays the origin of the Situation and additional detail depending on the origin. For example:

  • Cookbook Recipe: Cookbook and Recipe names.

  • Manual Situation creation: User ID who manually created the Situation.

  • Situations merged: UID of the user who merged the Situations and the merged Situation IDs.

To view the Visualize feature, go to a Situation Room and click the Visualize tab.

The Visualize tab shows diagrams of the alerts in the Situation according to how the Cookbook Recipe has clustered them. In the example below, this Situation has ten alerts which are clustered by two components: Source ID and Class. The Cookbook Recipe clusters alerts whose Source ID is at least 20% similar to the reference alert and whose Class is also at least 20% similar to the reference alert. The reference alert may be a seed alert or simply the first alert that the Cookbook Recipe added to the cluster.

Each diagram shows the similarity of the alert to the reference alert for one of the components. The reference alert has a similarity of 100% and is shown at the center of the circle. Alerts with a high similarity display closer to the center of the circle and alerts with a low similarity display nearer the edge of the circle. Alerts that are only 20% similar would display at the edge of the circle.
