AWS CloudWatch Anomaly Detection

“CloudWatch applies machine-learning algorithms to the metric’s past data to create a model of the metric’s expected values”

How does this work?

Although new to AWS, other logging software (Splunk, SumoLogic) have had this type of thing for years. They don’t usually disclose publicly what the underlying techniques are, but it will be something along the lines of these.

I’m using this actually. It doesn’t look like it needs ML.


This is exactly the business of Grok, which uses NuPIC.
