Azure Metrics Advisor

An AI service that monitors metrics and diagnoses issues

Protect your organisation’s growth

Embed AI-powered monitoring features to stay one step ahead of incidents – no machine-learning expertise required. Monitor the performance of your organisation’s growth engines, including sales revenue and manufacturing operations, with Azure Metrics Advisor, built on Anomaly Detector, that is part of Azure Cognitive Services. Quickly identify and fix problems through a powerful combination of monitoring in near-real time, adapting models to your scenario, and offering granular analysis with diagnostics and alerting.

The Anomaly Detector core engine selects the right anomaly-detection model and offers model customisation with tuning

All dimension combinations are analysed to pinpoint affected areas for root-cause analysis and diagnoses, and send alerts

Plug into popular time-series databases and get stream monitoring support. Manage the end-to-end pipeline of data-monitoring features with the Metric Advisor interface

Detect anomalies in virtually every scenario

Time-series data behaves differently depending on the scenario – for example, the number of daily visitors to an e-commerce website or the frequency of vibrations for a conveyor belt component. Anomaly Detector, the core engine of Azure Metrics Advisor, looks at each data set and automatically selects the best algorithm from the model pool for high accuracy. Adapt the models to your scenario with model customisation, fine-tuning and applied reinforcement learning.

Learn how Anomaly Detector works

Focus on fixing rather than data monitoring

Your data is examined in near-real time and Azure Metrics Advisor pinpoints the minute something happens. Spot unusual behaviour in deep data layers of more than 10,000 dimension combinations. When a problem is flagged, Azure Metrics Advisor quickly shows you the key drivers of the problem with root-cause analysis. You’ll get precise alerts based on your needs so that you can focus on fixing the issue rather than monitoring metrics.

Accelerate time to value

Azure Metrics Advisor simplifies data preparation and ingestion with abundant database connectors and pre-processing of your data by cleaning, aggregating and filling in gaps for a consistent time-series flow. There’s no need to build a user interface from scratch to operationalise the Azure Metrics Advisor feature set. Manage the stream and data monitoring life cycle from data ingestion, models, visualisation, diagnostics and alerts from one place.

Frequently asked questions about Azure Metrics Advisor

  • No SLA is provided for the free trial. Read the Azure Applied AI Services SLA.
  • Anomaly Detector is comprised of simple REST APIs with a code-first experience. It’s the core engine of Azure Metrics Advisor that detects anomalies in time-series data. It’s best applied for ad-hoc data analysis, and it can be run in containers.

    Azure Metrics Advisor has additional time-series monitoring features, with pipeline APIs and a built-in user interface for managing the service. It’s designed for live-streaming data and AI analytics, and it supports deploying in Azure.

  • Currently, it only supports Azure deployments.
