Application: Recommendations for remedial actions (Patent ID: US20240095117A1)

The patent filed by BMC Software Inc. describes systems and techniques for determining causal associations between events in an information technology landscape. By identifying causal event clusters without manual tuning, the technology can pinpoint root causes, analyze effects, predict future events, and prevent undesired outcomes in complex interconnected systems. The method involves receiving source alarms and target remedial actions, extracting features from event graphs, processing these features using a remedial action recommendation (RAR) model trained on previous data, and outputting ranked recommended remedial actions to a user interface for selection and execution. The system incorporates implicit feedback, such as positive and negative reinforcement, received without manual intervention, as well as explicit feedback from user-selected responses.

The computer-implemented method, computer program product, and system outlined in the patent focus on recommending remedial actions based on event data and feedback mechanisms. The technology utilizes machine learning models to process features extracted from event graphs, enabling the identification of effective remedial actions for specific situations. By incorporating implicit and explicit feedback, the system can continuously improve its recommendations and provide users with ranked options that include confidence values. Overall, the patent highlights an innovative approach to automating the identification and resolution of issues within complex IT environments, enhancing efficiency and effectiveness in managing IT incidents.
