Anomalies tile

The Anomalies tile shows entities in the dashboard's scope that have the highest number of anomalies during the current time range. Anomalies are identified by analyzing the data points of key metrics.

The default view includes a visualization (a column chart) of the sums of anomaly counts over time and a table of the most anomalous entities. You can configure the view to display just the visualization or just the table. In the table, entity names are links to the entity's Smart View page.

To create a chart, Zenoss Cloud divides the current time range into 24 equal periods and then represents the total number of anomalies during each period with separate columns (or no column).

Example tiles

Max entities displayed

The maximum number of entities to display in the tile.

  • In chart or combined view, the maximum is 16.

In table view, the number of rows is truncated to fit the tile, if necessary, and entities are displayed in descending order, from most to least anomalous.
