anomalydetection.mad() function

anomalydetection.mad() is a user-contributed function maintained by the package author.

anomalydetection.mad() uses the median absolute deviation (MAD) algorithm to detect anomalies in a data set.

Input data requires _time and _value columns. Output data is grouped by _time and includes the following columns of interest:

  • _value: difference between of the original _value from the computed MAD divided by the median difference.
  • MAD: median absolute deviation of the group.
  • level: anomaly indicator set to either anomaly or normal.
Function type signature
(<-table: stream[B], ?threshold: A) => stream[{C with level: string, _value_diff_med: D, _value_diff: D, _value: D}] where A: Comparable + Equatable, B: Record, D: Comparable + Divisible + Equatable
For more information, see Function type signatures.



Deviation threshold for anomalies.


Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).


Use the MAD algorithm to detect anomalies
