Abstract

See full text

An information technology (IT) infrastructure may be monitored, and the data thus collected may be used to infer problems and predict future conditions. In one embodiment, the present invention may include receiving a plurality of component metrics, each component metric related to a corresponding component of an (IT) infrastructure of an enterprise, each component being associated with one or more gross-level rules, and generating an indicator set by comparing each received component metric to relevant historical values of the component metric. In one embodiment, the present invention may also include determining that a gross-level rule is out of compliance, comparing the indicator set to one or more historical indicator sets to determine whether the indicator set resembles any of the one or more historical indicator sets, and performing an appropriate action based on the result of the comparison.
