Tool for detecting spikes in Graphite timeseries

Project description


Command line application that determines spikes in Graphite metrics for a given host and generates a CSV report

usage: [-h] -s SERVERS [SERVERS ...] -o OUTPUT [-l LIMIT]

Generates CSV report with spikes found on Graphite hosts

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-s SERVERS [SERVERS ...], --servers SERVERS [SERVERS ...]
Servers queried by program (default: None)
-o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT
Output CSV file (default: [None])
-l LIMIT, --limit LIMIT
Limit request count per host (default: [500])
-p PATTERN, --pattern PATTERN
Glob pattern for metrics (default: ['*'])
-t TIMEOUT, --timeout TIMEOUT
Timeout bethween requests for host (default: [1])

For example
./ -s dumdum:81 -o report.csv -l 2 -p *.cpu.* -t 42

Will gather the first two metrics that match \*.cpu.\* with 42 seconds timeout bethween the requests.
The command will ouptut the results in report.csv


The program creates a csv file ginven as argument for the --output option having 5 columns:

| host:81 | cpu.0.wait | 4 Jul 2013 | .42 | http://host:81/render/?target=cpu.0.wait|

Developing Detectors
All detectors should extend the Detector class and implement the detect_anomalies method.

To change the detector in the program, just change the DETECTOR=SpikeDetector() line with an instance
of your detector.

Testing Detectors

For testing you can use

It requires matplotlib for plotting the results. receives a Graphite json response for a given target and plots the following:
* Original timeseries
* Timeseries after running the detector
* Detector results
* A treshold line (you can remove it while testing)

You just have to replace SpikeDetector with your detector.

For testing large data, you can use the util.logger ```create_logfile``` function.
It creates a json file that can be viewed using script that plots a graph
simmilar to the one yielded by
