15.1 Overview

Sentinel provides an Operational EPS graph that displays the average EPS rate received by Sentinel before applying filters at the event source, Connector, or Collector level. You can monitor the EPS rate reaching a single Sentinel server or multiple Sentinel servers distributed across your organization. You can also view the EPS rate in day or hour granularity.

NOTE:To view the EPS rate received by other systems, you need to configure other Sentinel servers as search targets. For more information, see Section 13.0, Searching and Reporting Events in a Distributed Environment.

Understanding the operational EPS rate helps you determine whether the EPS rate is as expected and in compliance with the license. You can also generate reports to analyze the EPS rate over a specified time period and from specific Sentinel servers in your organization.
