Title: A TECHNIQUE FOR MONITORING TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT
Abstract:
In a technique for monitoring technical equipment, a plurality of event inputs, each corresponding to a unique occurrence of an event within a time period, are received by a processor from one or more event status reporting units. The time period includes an ordered sequence of time slots. The event inputs are grouped into event clusters. Each event cluster corresponds to a unique time slot and includes the event inputs that occurred within the corresponding time slot. The event inputs within a given event cluster are temporally arranged for each of the event clusters. A total count of the event inputs within the given event cluster is determined. Finally, for each of the event clusters, a first representation of the total count and a second representation of the temporal distribution of events along with an indication of the corresponding time slot are displayed simultaneously and distinctly on a display unit.
