For many Internet companies, a huge amount of KPIs (e.g., server CPU usage, network usage, business monitoring data) will be generated every day. How to closely monitor various KPIs, and then quickly and accurately detect anomalies in such huge data for troubleshooting and recovering business is a great challenge, especially for unlabeled data. The generated KPIs can be detected by supervised learning with labeled data, but the current problem is that most KPIs are unlabeled. That is a time-consuming and laborious work to label anomaly for company engineers. Build an unsupervised model to detect unlabeled data is an urgent need at present. In this paper, unsupervised learning DBSCAN combined with feature extraction of data has been used, and for some KPIs, its best F-Score can reach about 0.9, which is quite good for solving the current problem.
