Abstract:

A machine learning (?ML?) pipeline that includes unsupervised learning, supervised learning, and Bayesian learning is utilized to train a ML classifier that can classify machine metrics as being indicative of an anomaly. A boosting process can be utilized during the unsupervised learning portion of the ML pipeline that scores clusters of training data for completeness, and further splits clusters of training data based upon the completeness scores in order to optimize the clustering of the training data. Supervised learning is then performed on the cluster-labeled training data. Bayesian learning can also be utilized to assign incident probability inferences to the clusters of training data. Once the ML classifier has been trained, the ML classifier can be utilized in a production environment to classify multi-dimensional machine metrics generated by computing devices in the production environment as being indicative of an anomaly.

Abstract:

Described are computing systems and methods configured to detect a small, but meaningful, anomaly within one or more metrics associated with a platform. The system displays visuals of the metrics so that a user monitoring the platform can effectively notice a problem associated with the anomaly and take appropriate action to remediate the problem. An operational visual includes a radar-based visual with a heatmap arranging metrics, and a node representing a state of the metrics. Moreover, the system uses an ensemble of unsupervised machine learning algorithms for multi-dimensional clustering of hundreds of thousands of monitored metrics. Via the visuals and the implementation of the machine learning algorithms, the described techniques provide an improved way of representing and simulating many metrics being monitored for a platform. Moreover, the techniques are configured to expose actionable and useful information associated with the platform in a manner that can be effectively interpreted.

Abstract:

A system is configured to detect a small, but meaningful, anomaly within one or more metrics associated with a platform. The system displays visuals of the metrics so that a user monitoring the platform can effectively notice a problem associated with the anomaly and take appropriate action to remediate the problem. A first visual includes a radar-based visual that renders an object representing data for a set of metrics being monitored. A second visual includes a tree map visual that includes sections where each section is associated with an attribute used to compose the set of metrics. Via the display of the visuals, the techniques provide an improved way of representing a large number of metrics (e.g., hundreds, thousands, etc.) being monitored for a platform. Moreover, the techniques are configured to expose useful information associated with the platform in a manner that can be effectively interpreted by a user.
