Review threats and anomalies in your environment
You can use the Threats and Anomalies dashboards to get an overview of the threats and anomalies that UBA discovers in your environment. Understand the threats and anomalies as they relate to other metrics.
There are limits to the to the total number of threats and anomalies that Splunk UBA can process. It is important to perform regular maintenance of your Splunk UBA deployment by managing the number of threats and anomalies in your system. See Manage the number of threats and anomalies in your environment in Administer Splunk User Behavior Analytics.

- Understand more about the threats in your environment by reviewing the Threats by Type and Threats by Anomaly Type panels.
- Determine whether users or devices on a watchlist are involved in any threats with the Threats by Watchlist panel.
- Review the types, volume, and risk scores of threats over time with the Threats Timeline.
- Use the Threats Trend panel to understand whether threats in your organization are increasing or decreasing.
- Understand which anomaly types are generating the most threats in the Threats by Anomalies panel.
- Identify high-risk users in Threats by User, or high-risk departments in Threats by Department.
- If you set up a user watchlist, review the Threats by User Watchlist to see if those watchlisted users are involved in threats.
- Review the threats involved with different devices with the Threats by Device and Threats by Device Type panels.
- The Threats by App panel displays whether some apps are involved in more threats than others.
- Threats by Domain can help you understand whether some domains are more involved in threats than others.
