The reader of this document should be familiar with:
This section contains glossaries for all terms and acronyms used throughout the KPI Management and MediationZone documentation.
|Dimension||A dimension represents a category in a data set and is used for grouping of KPIs.|
|KDR||A UDR type that holds the source data for KPI calculations. The decoded input to the workflow is represented as key-value pairs in the UDR, which can then be referenced in a service model.|
A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively an organization is achieving key business objectives. A KPI in MediationZone is derived and calculated by aggregating metrics in a dimension over a specified period of time.
|Metric||A metric is the result of a calculation based on one or more values in the KDRs. Various functions define how these values should be aggregated in each period.|
|Service Model||A service model is set of objects that defines dimensions, metrics, trees, and KPIs and the relation between these entities.|
|Tree||A tree is a representation of a set of paths to dimensions in a service model.|
Metrics are aggregated in discrete periods. The length of these periods is determined by properties in the service models.
KPI Management includes a generalized Spark application that provides distributed data acquisition from Kafka, KPI calculations, and output to Kafka. Launching this application is referred to as "submitting" it to the Spark cluster.
