IntelliMagic Vision 9.22.0 provides Automated Change Detection.

Whether it is a new application or an application behaving poorly, unexpected increases in workloads often lead to performance degradation and costly misuse of systems resources.  By quickly identifying changes in workloads, the performance analysts can evaluate whether the increased demand is expected or is aberrant. With thousands of metrics across dozens of infrastructure components, identifying critical workload deviations is impossible without intelligent automation.

IntelliMagic Vision addresses this challenge by automatically comparing workload baselines for key components with the latest values and highlighting significant changes from the baseline.

An example is given in the figure below for the report “DSS Changes”.

To further investigate a warning or exception found in one of the change detection tables, you can drilldown to “Reference Period”. See the figure below for an example.

Another method to further investigate a warning or exception is to drilldown to “Selection vs Reference”.
