Anomaly Detection Definition

Anomaly detection is the process of using big data analytics to identify irregular traffic patterns on a network.

How does Avi Networks help with anomaly detection?

The Avi Vantage Platform leverages its position in the path of application traffic by collecting real-time telemetry from the distributed load balancers (Avi Service Engines). This enables the platform to monitor traffic spikes, detect any anomalies and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that trigger these anamolous traffic spikes.

Anomalies are indicated with a yellow circle with a white lightning bolt inside as seen in the image below.
