Searching for associated events in log data

Granted: October 27, 2015
Patent Number: 9171037
To retrieve a sequence of associated events in log data, a request expression is parsed to retrieve types of dependencies between events which are searched, and the constraints (e.g., keywords) which characterize each event. Based on the parsing results, query components can be formed, expressing the constraints for individual events and interrelations (e.g., time spans) between events. A resultant span query comprising the query components can then be run against an index of events,…
