If you select an incidents that lasted longer than two hours, the timeline on the bottom of the chart will be jagged. To provide context for events in the incident, the chart also shows the time frame surrounding the incident.

Time between an incident and the notification
There may be a difference of up to three minutes between the incident event time and the initial notification time due to variances in data processing time.
- Notification time: The time in the notification reflects the timestamp of when we received the request to deliver a notification.
- Incident time: The time you see on the Events page for the incident reflects the timestamp of data collection for the last data point that contributed to opening the incident.
Anomalous behavior detection
When we detect large changes in key signals in the alerting entity and/or upstream/downstream applications of the alerting entity, an "anomalous behavior detected" notification appears on the incident's page and in notification channels. You can:
- Expand the notification for details about the detected anomaly (web only).
- See upstream/downstream anomalies (Slack only).
- Select a link to go to the relevant product chart for further investigation.
