We will cover some sample notebooks to some use cases we will cover are a Log Anomaly timeline which we reduce significant amounts of logs using semi-supervised machine learning techniques to reduce logs and match them in near real time. Some of the other use cases is to use convolution filters to determine maintenance windows within the database workloads , determine best times to do database backups , security anomaly timelines and many others. This presentation will accompany several examples with how to apply these techniques , machine learning knowledge is preferred but not a prerequisite
