Key performance indicators (KPIs) are time series with the format of (timestamp, value). The accuracy of KPIs anomaly detection is far beyond our initial expectations sometimes. The reasons include the unbalanced distribution between the normal data and the anomalies as well as the existence of many different types of the KPIs data curves. In this paper, we propose a new anomaly detection model based on mining six local data features as the input of back-propagation (BP) neural network. By means of vectorization description on a normalized dataset innovatively, the local geometric characteristics of one time series curve could be well described in a precise mathematical way. Differing from some traditional statistics data characteristics describing the entire variation situation of one sequence, the six mined local data features give a subtle insight of local dynamics by describing the local monotonicity, the local convexity/concavity, the local inflection property and peaks distribution of one KPI time series. In order to demonstrate the validity of the proposed model, we applied our method on 14 classical KPIs time series datasets. Numerical results show that the new given scheme achieves an average F1
-score over 90%. Comparison results show that the proposed model detects the anomaly more precisely.
