Web servers are among the most important components in modern IT infrastructures. They host the websites, web services, and web applications that we use on a daily basis. Social networking, media streaming, software as a service (SaaS), and other activities wouldn’t be possible without the use of web servers. And with the advent of cloud computing and the movement of more services online, web servers and their monitoring are only becoming more important.

The health management APIs in Netdata allows teams to eliminate unnecessary alerting during scheduled maintenance, testing, auto scaling events, and instance reboots. For all SREs, it is absolutely crucial to filter out expected events during maintenance windows and quickly pinpoint critical issues in your infrastructure. Every minute is crucial while dealing with troubleshooting issues and any distractions that may hijack the troubleshooting process should be subdued.

We often hear the term "load" used to describe the state of a server or a device. But what does it really mean? System load is a measure of the amount of computational work that a system performs. An overloaded system, by definition, isn't able to complete all its tasks per schedule - this affects the performance and productivity of the system. And while "load" often gets conflated with CPU usage there's a lot more to it.

In this video we will walk though the Netdata Anomaly Advisor deepdive python notebook. The aim of this notebook is to explain, in detail, how the unsupervised anomaly detection in the Netdata agent actually works under the hood. No buzzwords, no magic, no mystery :) Try it for yourself, get started by signing in to Netdata and connecting a node. Once initial models have been trained (usually after the agent has about one hour of data, zero configuration needed), you'll be able to start exploring in the Anomaly Advisor tab of Netdata.
