Data Pattern Software?

Last Modified: 2012-09-01
I have a spreadsheet that I have to review daily that consist of IP addresses and a timestamps.  I pivot table this data so I can see all the date/time values for each IP address  Then based off that I determine what might be a pattern.  For example, I've got a date time stamp that keeps reflecting outbound activity every 10 minutes.  Naturally, this would raise suspicion and need to be checked.  

I'm using 10 minutes as an example but it might even be something that happening every 5 minutes, then it takes a break and 15 minutes later it trys again every five minutes...I'm looking for patterns.  I'm curious if thier is an Add-In or software that can assist me with this because the worksheet becomes rather large. and sifting through it takes a lot of time.   Nothing replaces the human eye, however I think with something like this it would help greatly.
