View Operational Metrics Anomaly Map

The Anomaly Map generated by Operational Metrics, displays the 10 CIs with the highest metric anomaly scores across a time period. The map lets you drill down into each CI to display anomaly scores for each of the CI's metrics. Anomaly scores are color coded to help you isolate problem areas at a glance.

About this task

Operational Metrics monitors metric data for CIs and detects anomalies when values are out of bounds according to the statistical model. Anomalies are scored on a scale of 0-10, and mapped into color codes based on score thresholds defined in the Anomaly Score to Event Severity Map [sa_metric_anomaly_score_to_event_severity_map] table.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Event Management > Operational Metrics > Anomaly Map. In the Anomaly Map, point to a colored anomaly box to display the details of the CI, instance, and the time period for the anomaly scores.
    The color of each anomaly box represents the highest anomaly score of all metrics for the CI for the time period.
  2. Click a CI to display a breakdown of all the metrics for the CI with their respective anomaly scores across the time period. Point to an anomaly box to display its precise anomaly score.
    The color coded anomaly score next to the metric represents the latest metric value for the CI.

What to do next

  • Click Add Configuration Item to add to the map a CI that has anomalies and that isn't included in the top 10 anomalies.
  • Click the Remove icon on a CI to remove it from the map.
  • Zoom in or out by changing the Time Range. Select one of the preset time periods or display data for example for the last 6 Hours or the last 3 Days, or specify a custom time period up to 90 days back. Or, click the timestamp at a column heading to drill into the time period between the current column and the column to the right.
  • Add a filter to display only a specific set of CIs out of the CIs that are displayed.
