Claim of US Patent No. 10,659,481

1. A system, comprising:a non-transitory memory storing instructions; and
one or more hardware processors coupled to the non-transitory memory and configured to read the instructions from the non-transitory memory to cause the system to perform operations comprising:
collecting network information and corresponding timestamps from multiple nodes, wherein the network information is associated with flows transmitted from the multiple nodes;
collecting application information from the multiple nodes, wherein the application information is associated with at least one application that executes on the multiple nodes and causes the multiple nodes to transmit the flows;
receiving a message, wherein the message indicates an anomaly at a node in the multiple nodes and includes network information that corresponds to the anomaly and a message timestamp;
identifying network information candidates by comparing the network information in the message to the network information from the multiple nodes;
identifying a narrowed set of network information candidates by comparing the message timestamp to corresponding timestamps of the identified network information candidates;
correlating the narrowed set of network information candidates to the application information collected at the node; and
based on the correlating, identifying an application from the at least one application that caused the anomaly.
