Overview of ABA

A pplication Behavior Analytics (ABA) is a feature of CA Application Performance Management (CA APM). It proactively identifies performance anomalies and helps users identify potential root causes.

It automatically mines selected data collected by CA APM and can also be configured to analyze data, which is imported into CA APM.

ABA correlates anomalous behavior across application components and even across different applications to identify unusual behaviors. Often this reveals likely causes or insights regarding unforeseen interactions.

Application Behavior Analytics (ABA) employs a state-of-the-art behavioral learning engine which consumes raw metric data, finds correlations within the data, and identifies normal and abnormal patterns of behavior.
