It detects anomaly in time series data frame. It employs an algorithm referred to as Seasonal Hybrid ESD (S-H-ESD), which can detect both global as well as local anomalies in the time series data by taking seasonality and trend into account. It’s built by a team at Twitter for their use on monitoring their traffics.
Date/Time Column - Select a Date or POSIXct data type column that holds date/time information.
Aggregation Level - When data type is Date, data is aggregated (e.g. summed, averaged, etc.) for each day. When data type is POSIXct, level of aggregation can be day, hour, minute, or second.
Value Column - Select either 'Number of Rows' or a numeric column for which you want to detect anomalies.
Aggregation Function - Select an aggregate function such as 'sum', 'mean', etc. to aggregate the values.
How to Fill NA - This algorithm requires NAs to be filled. The default is Fill with Previous Value. This can be...
Fill with Previous Value
Fill with Zero
Direction of Anomaly (Optional) - The default is "both". Direction of anomaly. This can be...
"both" - Both positive and negative direction.
"pos" - Only positive direction.
"neg" - Only negative direction.
With Expected Values (Optional) - The default is TRUE. Whether expected_values should be returned.
Maximum Ratio of Anomaly Data (Optional) - The default is 0.1. The maximum ratio of anomaly data compared to the number of total data.
Alpha (Sensitivity to Anomaly Data) (Optional) - The default is 0.05. The larger the value, the more anomaly data are captured.
Report Only Last Values within (Optional) - The default is NULL. Find only last anomalies within a day or hour. This can be
NULL - Find all anomalies.
"day" - Find last anomalies within a day.
"hr" - Find last anomalies within an hour.
Threshold of Positive Anomaly (Optional) - The default is 'None'. If this is specified, only positive anomalies above the threshold are reported. This can be
'None' - No threshold.
'med_max' - Median of daily max values.
'p95' - 95th percentile of the daily max values.
'p99' - 99th percentile of the daily max values.
Longer Time Span than a Month (Optional) - The default is FALSE. This should be TRUE if the time span is longer than a month.
Piecewise Median Time Window (Optional) - The default is 2. The size of piecewise median time window (span of seasons). The unit is weeks.
Date / Time Column
pos_anomaly - Returns TRUE if anomaly is detected in the positive detection for each row.
pos_value - Anomaly values in the positive direction.
neg_anomaly - Returns TRUE if anomaly is detected in the negative detection for each row.
neg_value - Anomaly values in the negative direction.
expected_value - The values that the model would have expected based on the underlying trend.
