Goals & Constraints
The optimization goal defines the objective of an optimization study to be achieved by changing the system parameters to modify the system behavior while also satisfying any defined optimization constraints on the system metrics, possibly representing SLOs.
A goal is defined by:
- an optimization objective: either maximize or minimize
- a scoring function (scalar): either a single metric or a formula defined by one or more metrics
One or more constraints can be associated with a goal
- a formula defined on one or more metrics, referring to either absolute values (absolute constraints) or relative to a baseline value (relative constraints)
Goals and constraints are displayed in the Akamas UI when drilling down each optimization study.
The detail of the formula used to define the goal may also be displayed:
