System logs record system states and significant events at various critical points to help debug performance issues and failures. Therefore, the rapid and accurate detection of the system log is crucial to the security and stability of the system. In this paper, proposed is a novel attention-based neural network model, which would learn log patterns from normal execution. Concretely, our model adopts a GRU module with attention mechanism to extract the comprehensive and intricate correlations and patterns embedded in a sequence of log entries. Experimental results demonstrate that our proposed approach is effective and achieve better performance than conventional methods.
