Using Machine Learning Analytics to Help Meet SLAs

The first post in this two-part series introduced machine learning analytics as a new way to find and fix the root cause of performance problems to help meet SLAs. This post explains three ways MLA can be used to better utilize resources for optimal performance.

The first way MLA helps make certain needed performance is delivered while optimally use resources is by providing the accurate information needed for IT to tune VM configurations settings. IT managers today have poor insight into the causes of poor application performance. To be extra careful, they often throw a lot of hardware at the problem in an attempt to avoid the possibility of starving the applications.

Storage Strategies for Meeting SQL Server SLAs in VMware Environments

Almost all database workloads are now (or eventually will be) virtualized. High availability (HA) clusters using virtual servers provide the application protection needed to satisfy even the most demanding service-level agreements (SLAs).

Configuring the shared storage needed for HA in VMware can present challenges to creating these clusters and therefore satisfying SLAs. These challenges can create a barrier to migrating business-critical database applications to VMware. SQL Server also presents challenges that can make satisfying SLAs substantially more expensive.

What is topological behavior analysis?

Topological Behavior Analysis (TBA) is the real-time algorithmic analysis of computer data that originates from complex virtualization and cloud environments. It derives from Topological Data Analysis that leverages K-means as its foundation.

Computer environments have many different layers that generate a large volume of statistical data – from the user experience layer (i.e. press of a button) to the data on the storage system, with many layers in between (cell phone towers, providers, networks, servers, etc.). All that data needs to be ingested, modeled (trained) and provide the “answers” to variety of questions in automated fashion that IT/DevOps may have…

Using Machine Learning Analytics to Deliver Service Levels

Jerry Melnick

While the layers of abstraction created in virtualized environments afford numerous advantages, they can also obscure how the virtual resources are best allocated and how physical resources are performing. This can make maintaining optimal application performance a never-ending exercise in trial-and-error.

This post highlights some of the challenges encountered when using traditional monitoring and analytics tools, and describes how machine learning, as a next-generation analytics platform, provides a better way to meet SLAs by finding and fixing issues before they become performance problems. A future post will describe how machine learning analytics can also be used to allocate resources for optimal performance and cost-saving efficiency.
