A profile describes the behavior of an entity on a network. An entity can be a server, user, subnet, or application. Once you generate a profile defining what normal behavior looks like, you can build models that identify anomalous behavior.
Any field contained within a message can be used to generate a profile. A profile can even be produced by combining fields that originate in different data sources. You can transform the data used in a profile by leveraging the Stellar language.
The Profiler is automatically installed and started when you install HCP through Ambari install.
