# Experiment with Different Values

Learn how using different values impacts the outcome of the calculations.

In the process so far, we’ve used several constants in your calculations:

- Lookback period: How far back we calculate the mean and standard deviation for each status code. The value we used is 60 minutes.
- Entries Threshold: The least amount of entries we want to get an alert for. The value we used is 10.
- Z-Score Threshold: The z-score after which we classify the value as an anomaly. The value we used is 6.
