Evaluating the performance of the real-time anomaly detection included in the Elastic Stack

I am about to do my MSc thesis and I have in mind to do a comparative study between the Anomaly Detection algorithm included in the Elastic Stack and 1-2 other Frameworks/Implementations.

I was wondering whether it is possible in some sort of way to use the NAB to evaluate the performance and the quality of the Elastic Anomaly Detection algorithm. I know that the Elastic ML is open source, does anybody know whether it has already been evaluated previously?

Thank you in advance for your help.


Definitely possible, see NAB Entry Points.

It is not on the scoreboard, so go for it!
