Amazon Lookout for Metrics announces the launch of backtesting when using Amazon CloudWatch as a data source connector. Backesting is a new anomaly detection mode you can now select when setting up your detector. You can seamlessly connect to your data in CloudWatch to set up a highly accurate anomaly detector across metrics, dimensions, and namespaces of your choice. Amazon Lookout for Metrics uses machine learning (ML) to automatically detect and diagnose anomalies (outliers from the norm) without requiring any prior ML experience. Amazon CloudWatch provides you with actionable insights to monitor your applications, respond to system-wide performance changes, optimize resource utilization, and get a unified view of operational health.
