Method to Correlate and Identify Importance of Relationship of Events

As number of events to be processed increases, relationship between events and relationship between resources becomes more important.

The event correlation can be automatically generated by analyzing the event over a period of time or historical database and applying the weight to occurrence of events happening with in a time period. The weight can be increased by including the resource relationship to the event correlation.

Consider a primary event and a secondary event, in accordance with method disclosed herein, the total number of times when the primary event is observed . Further, the total number of times when the primary event and the secondary event happens within a time period is also tracked.

Subsequently, weight is calculated as follows:

Weight = (Number of times when the primary and the secondary event happened / Total number of times the primary event was observed) * Number of times when the primary and the secondary event happened.

Weight thus obtained specifies how closely the primary and secondary events are related. In an embodiment, the weight can be augmented by identifying relationship of resource associated with the primary and secondary events. If the primary event and the secondary event are received from two different resources and they are dependent, the weight can be increased by a constant Value. The weight can also be augmented by the type of relationship.
