As cloud based platforms become more popular, it becomes an essential task for the cloud administrator to efficiently manage the costly hardware resources. Prompt action should be taken whenever hardware resources are faulty, or configured and utilized in a way that causes application performance degradation, hence poor quality of service. In this work, we propose a semantic aware technique based on neural network learning and pattern recognition in order to provide automated, real-time support for resource anomaly detection. We incorporate application semantics to narrow down the scope of the learning and detection phase, thus enabling our machine learning technique to work at a very low overhead when executed online. As our method runs “life-long” on monitored resource usage on the cloud, in case of wrong prediction, we can leverage administrator feedback to improve prediction on future runs.
