Log of rules firing

  • 1.  Log of rules firing

    Posted Fri March 08, 2019 10:20 AM
    Greetings,
    Is there a log in QRadar that tracks the time and date a particular rule fired? We're looking to use this for metrics so that we can show the increase or reduction in the number of times a rule was activated.

    Thanks

    Hi Brian,

    When it comes to metrics on your top talking rules, would it help for you to create a report the top talking rules, and then add a trending chart to that data?

    Drayton,

    It might at that. Do you have a recommendation as to how to make that go? 

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Another option would be to configure a rule response to dispatch a new event for any particular rule you wish to track.    You could then search and report on the dispatched events to analyze rule hit times, rates, trends, etc.

    You may want to use the SIEM Tuning Report (CRE event report) as a starting point.
    Look at about 36 minutes into the following (Tuning Methodology):

    Sorry I didn't get back sooner, but did that Open Mic help with what you were looking for?
