Use OnePager Pro to Display a Server Outage Incident Timeline

This outage timeline, summarized in OnePager Pro, is based on a Microsoft Project plan. It serves as a graphical representation of a root cause analysis (RCA) for a multi-server production outage, including down times, and individual server failures that contributed to the overall outage.

OnePager Pro Outage Timeline Features

The timeline uses:

  • Collection of outage events into a single row per server, creating a timeline for each server.
  • Grouping each server into a swimlane based on its physical NOC location.
  • Floating time axis with hourly gridlines makes it easy to pinpoint specific events during the outage.
  • Color coding of the timeline based on each server's performance status (e.g. normal operations, degraded, outage).
  • Comment boxes call out the timing of server-specific issues that contributed to the overall production outage.
  • An hourly timeline allows for a detailed analysis of rapidly-occurring server issues.

This server outage incident timeline was created using OnePager Pro, a timeline presentation tool from Chronicle Graphics that uses data exported from Microsoft Project.
