Hi Jack! @jackzampolin
I am looking at historical data for number of transactions per day. These transactions have many tags/fields related to them, such as country, email domain, successful/unsuccessful. If I see a spike in any of these fields, I would like to know about it (an alert).
To start with, I am looking at historical data to look for spikes in different fields. For example, if I wanted to look for a spike in transactions per day by country, I would have to go into the ad hoc filters, and one-by-on click on each country, until I had manually checked each country for past spikes.
My method is to divide (# of payments per day)/(average # of payments in the trailing two weeks) to get an order of magnitude. I would like to be able to set a thresh-hold (3), which could make a list of all the countries which at some point had an order of magnitude of 3.0x the average number of payments in a day, so that I could check them manually.
Let me know if I can improve the terms I’m using to be more clear. Thanks for the help!
