Finding widespread events in a distributed network is crucial when detecting cyber-attacks or network malfunctions. We propose a new detection scheme for widespread events based on bitmaps that can succinctly record and deliver event information between monitoring agents and a central coordinator. Our proposed scheme reduces communication overhead as well as total number of rounds, and achieves even higher accuracy, compared with the current state of the art.
