Configuring applications for anomaly detection

You must turn on anomaly detection in order to monitor an application's infrastructure for abnormal behavior. Anomaly detection monitoring is turned on or off for applications only.

Before you begin


  1. Log in to the OnCommand Insight web UI.
  2. Click Manage and select Applications.
  3. Locate the application assigned to the compute resource.
  4. In the Anomalies section, ensure that the Monitor control box in the upper right of the section shows ON rather than OFF; if not, click anywhere in the Monitor control box to switch the control to ON.
    You are able to concurrently monitor up to 48 applications for anomalies.
    The status in the section displays Learning for at least an hour; the anomaly detection engine preloads up to 14 days of any existing performance data so the engine can learn the behavior of your environment. After the Insight server performs the first poll of your environment's assets, the anomaly detection engine calculates and returns a score for the application within that time.
