Detect Spike In S3 Bucket Deletion Help

You must install the AWS App for Splunk (version 5.1.0 or later) and Splunk Add-on for AWS (version 4.4.0 or later), then configure your CloudTrail inputs. You can modify dataPointThreshold and deviationThreshold to better fit your environment. The dataPointThreshold variable is the minimum number of data points required to have a statistically significant amount of data to determine. The deviationThreshold variable is the number of standard deviations away from the mean that the value must be to be considered a spike. This search works best when you run the "Baseline of S3 Bucket deletion activity by ARN" support search once to create a baseline of previously seen S3 bucket-deletion activity.
