« Back to Glossary Index

An Event Storm is a large number of warming, informational and error-class occurrences on a given node (or array of nodes) over a relatively short period of time. Since these events must be detected and addressed to improve the health and reliability of any given system, a whole science and collection of supporting applications exist to best manage these occurrences.
