Event correlation refers to the processes involved in sensing and analyzing relationships between events.
In complex dynamic environments, one of the biggest challenges is how to manage the large number of events that originate from a variety of sources. Within this sea of data, the requirement is to identify the events that have a significant impact on business services. So while it is essential to minimize the number of events that appear in the event browser, greater efficiency is gained by highlighting the events that, if unmanaged, could cause a breach in service level agreements (SLAs) and generate incidents in your help desk system.
Event correlation plays a vital role in automatically reducing the noise and allowing IT to focus on those issues that really matter to the business service and IT objectives.
As data centers grow in size and complexity, IT event correlation and management becomes more challenging. Some challenges stem from IT silos, in which different network, server, and storage teams monitor events using their own tools and processes.
Businesses need a single, unified view of your IT environment and the ability to automate the execution of analytics, such as the correlation of events and performance data with topology from end-to-end and top to bottom.
