Overview

You can use this document to learn about the data displayed in the Anomalies page of the Edge Delta App.

The data that populates the Anomalies page is based on the configurations of your monitors.

Monitors, specifically the pattern-check and pattern-skyline monitors, analyze a pattern’s behavior. If an anomaly is detected in the pattern, then the monitor will create a finding.

Note

A finding is a monitor-based anomaly.

Note

Most users, especially new users, will have default monitors already configured for their account; however, if your account does not have any existing monitors, then the Anomalies page will be empty.

  • To learn how to create and configure a monitor, see Monitors.

Understand Data Types

Note

When you access the Anomalies page, by default, data is displayed for the previous 15 minutes. Additionally, by default, data is displayed for all tags and corresponding source types.
