Filtering Anomalies



Anomaps and Anomalies can be sorted in the display panel by:

Time Range - This defines the time period for all Anomaps and Anomaly charts. To select a Time Range, open the Time Range menu from the Anomap/Anomalies taskbar.
Note: Time Range is not adjustable at the individual chart level. 


  • Start date
  • Significance
  • Absolute delta

and by

  • Ascending order
  • Descending order


Anomalies and Anomaps can be filtered by:

Filter by tags, origins, metric properties and values Anomalies_search_panel.jpg
Minimum duration 
Minimum delta
Status of anomaly
Direction of anomaly
Time scale
Anomaly type
Bookmarked anomalies
Correlated events


Tags - Type any property/value pair added to a metric or metric set name

Origin - Type:
                    @stream to filter by streams
                    @composite to filter by composite metrics
                    @alert to filter by alerts

Properties and values of metric expression  - See Metric Expressions

Score  - Set level of anomaly - from 0 to 100

Minimum duration of anomaly - From 0 to 100 in minutes, hours, or days, up to limit of chart time period

Minimum delta of an anomaly

  • Absolute Delta: Difference between the peak value of the metric during an anomaly from the normal range
  • Percent Delta (%): The percent of change from the normal range to the peak value of an anomaly.
  • When setting a value in the Min Delta filter, only anomalies with higher absolute or percentage deltas are displayed in the Anoboard.

Status of anomaly

  • Open (ongoing, having not returned to normal range)
  • All anomalies

Direction of anomaly

  • Orientation from normal range
  • Up (higher) and/or Down (lower)

Time Scale

  • 1 minute
  • 5 minutes
  • 1 hour
  • 1 day
  • 1 week

Anomaly Type

  • All
  • Transient - a transient spike in the normal range pattern
  • Pattern Change - a change in the normal behavior of the range pattern

Bookmarked Anomalies

  • Mine - Anomalies bookmarked by me
  • Other's - Anomalies bookmarked by other's
  • None - Anomalies with no bookmarks
  • All Bookmarked - Anomalies with bookmarks
  • All Anomalies - Ignore bookmarks when filters

Correlate Events [Show/Hide]


  • Start date
  • Significance
  • Absolute delta

and by

  • Ascending order
  • Descending order



Filters automatically take effect. The results are displayed in the Anomaps and Anomalies charts.

Select Save, to save the the existing Anomalies tile with the new filters.

Select Save As to create a new Anomalies tile based on the new filters. A Save dialog box is displayed. enter a name and delete or add tags.
