  • Patent number: 10999122
    Abstract: In an exemplary embodiment, a computer system hosts a logical Key Performance Indicator (KPI) network to detect computer performance anomalies. Databases execute database KPI nodes, database edges, and database instance nodes of the logical KPI network to propagate database KPI data to a KPI server system. Application servers execute application server KPI nodes, application server edges, and application server instance nodes of the logical KPI network to propagate application server KPI data to the KPI server system. Web servers execute web server KPI nodes, web server edges, and web server instance nodes of the logical KPI network to propagate web server KPI data to the KPI server system. This KPI data indicates logical data path information for the propagated KPI data (instead of KPI values). The KPI server system processes the logical data path information to indicate the computer performance anomalies.
