Outlier Incident

View the frequency of similar incidents to gain helpful context during incident triage

When responders are heads down in response effort, it is easy to lose context on whether similar incidents have occurred previously, or represent an entirely new problem never seen before. The Outlier Incident feature provides incident responders with immediate context on how often similar incidents occur on a specific service.

Outlier Incident Labels

Outlier Incident uses data science techniques to dynamically map incidents to templates, and it determines how often each type of incident occurs on a service. The following labels are applied underneath the incident title on the incident details page:

  • Frequent: Incident types representing 20% or more of all incidents in the preceding 30 days.
  • Rare: Incident types representing 5% or less of all incidents in the preceding 30 days.
  • Anomaly: Incidents types that have not occurred on the service in the preceding 30 days.

To determine the occurrence calculations, incident data from the 30 days prior to the day of the incident creation date are analyzed.
