What is a similarity search?
By using absolute values or signal shape, you can apply the Similarity Search feature to search for events in your data that present similar profiles to an event you find interesting.
Why conduct a similarity search?
You can quickly find and analyze peaks related to unit shutdowns based on variables that are characterized by a signal shape. By doing this you can easily determine how frequently the signal shape appears in the data stream, and hence how frequently a certain event occurs in the operation of your process.
