Tuesday And Wednesday Are The Busiest For NetOps/SecOps Teams
Network operations and security operations teams generally work around the clock. However, there are days and times they are clearly busier. Below is a graph that analyzes all of the alerts indeni generated for our customers (those connected to indeni Insight) over the course of Mar 9th 2015 to Apr 5th 2015, according to the day of the week they were generated. At the time of writing of this blog post (Apr 7th, 2015), it was clear that Tuesday and Wednesday are the busiest days. It will be interesting to see if this changes over time, which is probably shouldn’t. To get up-to-date results, click on the image itself.
The rationale behind claiming that the days with the most alerts are the busiest, is that a big portion of alerts issued by indeni are ones that are in direct response to a configuration change. Remember – our job is to analyze configurations as they change and alert when we find possible issues in them.
