Why Adaptive Fault Detection is Powerful and Unique

Adaptive Fault Detection is a patented, algorithm-based technology and one of the important central components of the VividCortex app . Unlike other monitoring methodologies — such as anomaly detection or threshold alerting — adaptive fault detection is designed to detect events that are, by definition, detrimental to a system. It looks for issues that actually prevent work from completeing — not just anomalies or outliers. With this quick blog post, we want to help readers understand the definition and value of fault detection. To do so, it helps to delve into several key concepts:

  • Why is it important to identify faults?
  • How does VividCortex’s detect faults?
  • How does our app help users address faults when they appear?

Why is it important to identify faults?

A fault is most easily defined as a certain kind of …

See the Details with 1-Second Resolution Data

We've talked a lot about the high-resolution data we capture, but if you haven't experienced it yourself, it might be a little abstract. Here, look at the difference between 1-second and 1-minute data.

Are your monitoring systems glossing over important detail with low-frequency data?

All of our metrics are in 1-second granularity. That's 60x more data points per minute than most monitoring tools. It's 120x more data points per second than MongoDB Monitoring Service's premium paid tier. It's 500x more data points per minute than MySQL Enterprise Monitor at its default settings.

It's enough detail to see 1-second server stalls you will never find otherwise. This gives you the ability to proactively find and stop problems that will become much more serious over time.

And this data is not only realtime but …
