Anomaly Detection metrics are the metrics on which anomaly detection runs. You can enable anomaly detection on any metric.
If Anomaly Detection is enabled, you can select up to 20 metrics to monitor for anomalies daily. Of those 20, you can select 5 to update hourly. The number of metrics allowed is determined by
metric. For example, if 2 separate reports set anomaly detection on the same metric, it counts as two metrics of the 20 that you are allowed.
There is no restriction on the metric type, so you can enable anomaly detection on any metric, including:
However, to get meaningful results, you should enable anomaly detection on the metrics that have business value.
- For retail, the checkout success rate or total revenue.
- For airlines, total failure count to complete check-in.
Note: We don’t recommend that you enable anomaly detection on MIN or MAX metrics because many of them do not have meaningful business values.
