CDISE Seminar: Change-points and Anomalies Detection in Software-Intensive Systems

Prof. Evgeny BurnaevWe are happy to invite you to the next CDISE seminar by Prof. Evgeny Burnaev (Institute for Information Transmission Problems), titled: “Change-points and Anomalies Detection in Software-Intensive Systems​”

24 May 2016, 13:00pm
Skolkovo Innovation Center
Technopark, Building 3, Room 407

As contemporary software-intensive systems reach increasingly large scale, it is imperative that failure detection schemes be developed to help prevent costly system downtimes. A promising direction towards the construction of such schemes is the exploitation of easily available measurements of system performance characteristics such as average number of processed requests, queue size per time unit, etc. In this presentation, we describe a holistic methodology for detection of abrupt changes in time series data in the presence of quasi-seasonal trends and long-range dependence with a focus on failure detection in computer systems. We propose a trend estimation method enjoying optimality properties in the presence of long-range dependent noise to estimate what is considered “normal” system behaviour. To detect change-points and anomalies, we develop an approach based on the ensembles of “weak” detectors. We demonstrate the performance of the proposed change-point detection scheme using an artificial dataset, the publicly available Abilene dataset as well as the proprietary geoinformation system dataset.

Non-Skoltech attendees should contact for access to the building.
