Pattern Matching

  • Pattern Matching (correlation) is the degree to which two or more attributes or measurements on the same group of elements show a tendency to vary together.
  • This feature is used to identify all those graphs that contains a similar pattern. User can correlate two or more graphs from Dashboard.

Other Option in Chart Metrics Selection

Identify and show more relevant metrics where similar pattern is matched :

  • Turn on this toggle key to apply the pattern match.
  • Specify a catalogue, which contains the graphs information on which the user can apply the pattern match.
  • To apply pattern match, the user needs one baseline to compare all the graphs available in catalogue.
  • To get the baseline graph (for which alert is generated), the user needs some criteria and it should have the minimum or maximum value across all the Indices of one condition for which the alert is generated.
  • Once the baseline is selected, the user can compare each sample of both the graphs (baseline as well as the catalogue graphs) and filter all the graphs, which satisfy the threshold value given in the action. After that, the user can send all the resultant graphs in mail body along with all the alert information.
