The session looks into how anomaly detection works by discussing these key concepts:

  • What is normal behaviour?
  • How are expectations about future behaviour derived from data?
  • How do anomaly detection algorithms work including trending and seasonality?
  • How do these algorithms know whether something is an anomaly?
  • Which algorithms can be used for which type of data?

The talk will work with simple-to-understand, hands-on examples. I will cover basic concepts like distribution models, exponential smoothing, hypothesis testing etc. I will also provide clear guidance on which types of algorithms to use for failure rate analysis, response times, load, and other key operational metrics.

This session is sponsored by ruxit
