Application: Automatic incident dispatcher (Patent ID: US20230385342A1)

The patent filed by Acronis International GmbH describes an automatic incident dispatcher that can detect and classify incidents in a computer system. The method involves monitoring the system, calculating incident signatures, determining the degree of variance from previously classified incidents, and adding the new incident to a database if it belongs to the same class as a previously classified incident. The system also includes steps for assigning information to trouble tracking systems or system administrators, determining severity, identifying controls, and performing analysis using heuristic rules, statistical analysis, neural networks, or support vector machines.

The system described in the patent claims allows for efficient incident detection and classification in a computer system by comparing new incidents to previously classified ones. By calculating the degree of variance and applying predetermined thresholds, the system can automatically determine if a new incident belongs to the same class as a known incident. This method streamlines incident management processes by automating the classification and assignment of information, controls, and severity levels, ultimately improving the overall efficiency and effectiveness of incident response within a computer system.
