The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager collects raw data, called events, from your monitoring systems and applies machine learning to duplicate them into alerts.
Rather than notifying you each time an alert occurs, Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager analyzes and groups them together based on their similarity. These groups are known as Situations. By identifying Situations, Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager reduces noise and alert fatigue, granting you the ability to resolve the issues that are most critical to your system as and when they arise.
This Operator Guide covers the essentials of Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager, from launching the application to finding your way around the UI, and working with situations. It assumes that your Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager administrator has already set up your Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager system, and that it integrates with monitor tools that provide event data about the systems you support.
If you are an administrator and want information about system setup and configuration, see the Administrator Guide.
For information on setting up Cisco Crosswork Situation Manager to integrate with your monitoring system, see Integrations
