Cross-correlation based clustering and dimension reduction on multivariate time series for KPIs in a data processing system

In this paper, we investigate multi-dimensional time series data and we introduce a graph based clustering approach using the cross-correlation between the time series. The procedure is applied to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) measured during a specific data processing system in order to identify connections between the various KPIs. The proposed technique consists of two main steps: introducing a novel similarity measure (for measuring cross-correlations) and then clustering (based on the correlations). The two parts are both compared to some existing methods; sensitivity analysis is carried out for various (dis-)similarity measures, and various clustering methods are also compared. The proposed method is suitable for efficient visualization to reveal dependencies and connections between the attributes and also detects a number of "relevant" attributes., i.e., select important features. Our method keeps background assumptions as minimal as possible.

  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
