Status prediction and anomaly detection are two fundamental tasks in automatic IT systems monitoring. In this paper, a joint model Predictor & Anomaly Detector (PAD) is proposed to address these two issues under one framework... In our design, the variational auto-encoder (VAE) and long short-term memory (LSTM) are joined together. The prediction block (LSTM) takes clean input from the reconstructed time series by VAE, which makes it robust to the anomalies and noise for prediction task. In the meantime, the LSTM block maintains the long-term sequential patterns, which are out of the sight of a VAE encoding window. This leads to the better performance of VAE in anomaly detection than it is trained alone. In the whole processing pipeline, the spectral residual analysis is integrated with VAE and LSTM to boost the performance of both. The superior performance on two tasks is confirmed with the experiments on two challenging evaluation benchmarks. read more
