Title: Restarting event and alert analysis after a shutdown in a distributed processing system

Abstract: Restarting event and alert analysis after a shutdown in a distributed processing system includes identifying a shutdown condition of the distributed processing system; determining whether the shutdown was a planned shutdown or an unplanned shutdown; if the shutdown was planned, storing an identification of the last event in an event log that was injected in an event queue at the time of the planned shutdown and restarting event and alert analysis using the next event identified in the event log; and if the shutdown was unplanned, for each event analyzer, identifying the last event included in the last event pool that the event analyzer closed; and restarting event and alert analysis at the event analyzer using the next event received by the event analyzer after the identified last event.
