In a large organization with different kinds of equipment, it is important to constantly understand what is a normal baseline.
How many connections are typically permitted or denied by the firewall?
How many errors are typically seen on servers?
How many logons are there to the domain controller or the database servers?
What is the IO rate from storage systems?
Once baselines are known, deviations can be detected. AccelOps can baseline any collected performance metric or flow data and create alerts when anomalies are detected. Fine-grained baselines are created on an hourly basis for each distinct hour of the day and separately for work and non-work days.
The baselines are learned automatically and updated continuously in an attempt to learn the new normal. AccelOps enables baselines on any metric and allows users to customize the amount of deviation they want to see from normal behavior.
