What is anomaly detection?

Anomaly detection algorithms are tailored to recognize instances when a metric exhibits behavior that diverges from its historical norms. This includes considerations of trends, seasonal variations, and time-of-day patterns, addressing the challenges that traditional threshold-based alerting systems struggle to handle effectively.

What are some common anomaly examples?

In monitoring systems, potential anomalies can manifest across various vectors, with the most common examples including:

  • Response delays: Unexpected increases in server response time compared to historical measurements or anticipated benchmarks.
  • Resource usage peaks: Sudden spikes in CPU, RAM, disk, or network utilization during performance assessments
  • Transaction errors: Elevated occurrences of errors like 500 (server errors) or 404 (not found) that were absent in prior tests
  • Sudden throughput reduction: Decreases in requests processed per second, even without reaching the system’s theoretical maximum capacity

Core metrics: The RED framework

Monitoring an application is more than just collecting metrics; it’s about gaining actionable insights to ensure a seamless user experience and top-notch product delivery. Software companies need a mechanism beyond mere data gathering, allowing them to address any issues that may arise for their users promptly.

Introducing the RED method.

This innovative feature, implemented by FusionReactor, elevates observability by enabling users to monitor the likelihood of anomalies in critical service metrics, aptly named RED (Request, Errors, and Duration rates). RED allows closer scrutiny of these pivotal metrics and sends notifications when they surpass predefined thresholds, ushering in a proactive approach to service management.

FusionReactor’s implementation of the RED method enhances observability by allowing users to track anomalies in critical service metrics: Requests, Errors, and Duration rates. This framework facilitates closer monitoring of these critical metrics and triggers notifications when they surpass predefined thresholds. With FusionReactor, software companies adopt a proactive approach to service management, ensuring smooth operations and timely issue resolution.
