I am new to the list and have recently acquired an interest in A.I. with
Perl. I would like, as an initial dip into the water so to speak, to know
what your thoughts on solving the following problem are? (how would you
solve and and using what?)
Basically, I am interested in monitoring the throughput of an interface on
my computer via MRTG / RRDtool (or _maybe_ even 'raw' data in a MySQL/Oracle
db) and would like to be able to do the following:-
1. Assume that my usage curve is a curve of some type, with the X-axis of a
particular graph being time and the Y axis is interface throughput. I want
the system to be able to 'learn' my usage pattern and determine what
'normal' is for a given hour, day, week, month.
2. I want to be able to be alerted when usage strays away from 'normal'.
What are your thoughts on how to achieve this? Would a neural network with
some appropriate training data be able to recognise a normal pattern and,
more importantly, any deviations from that pattern?
thanks for any advice,
