Simple math to get some signal out of your noisy sea of data
You’ve instrumented your system and application to the hilt. You can now “measure all the things”. Your team has set up thousands of metrics collecting millions of data points a day. Now what?
Most IT ops teams only keep an eye on a small fraction of the metrics they collect because analyzing this mountain of data and extracting signal from the noise is not easy. The choice of what analytic method to use ranges from simple statistical analysis to sophisticated machine learning techniques. And one algorithm doesn’t fit all data.
