Burst detector creates a log every time a minimum number of events happen in a set length of time.

For example, if you want to monitor if a Twitter user publishes more that 10 tweets in 5 minutes:   

  • Set the Minimum number of events in a burst to 10
  • Set Events must happen within to 30 min  

Every burst matching these conditions will return the time of Start , time of End  and Duration of each burst.

Burst detector is more powerful when combined with alerts.
