N. Desai, R. Bradshaw, and E. Lusk, "Disparity: Scalable Anomaly Detection for Clusters," 37th International Conference on Parallel Processing - Workshops, Portland, OR, IEEE/IET Electronic Library, 1969, pp. 116-120, . [pdf]
In this paper, we describe disparity, a tool that does parallel, scalable anomaly detection for clusters. Disparity uses basic statistical methods and scalable reduction operations to perform data reduction on client nodes and uses these results to locate node anomalies. We discuss the implementation of disparity and present results of its use on a SiCortex SC5832 system.
