While v.66 includes a number of great UI enhancements and overall architecture improvements, it also coincides with the official release of our first Android Mobile application and Capacity Forecasting.
Be sure to also check out some common dashboard uses and how to decide which widget to use.
Designed primarily as a triage tool, the mobile application enables you to:
Future versions will include more dashboard widgets and the ability to filter the alerts view.
The iOS version is in testing and will be released to the Apple Store by the end of the month.
We are very excited to announce the initial rollout of Capacity Forecasting functionality. With this introduction, you are able to graph the expected performance of a datapoint based on historic performance. All accounts will have access by August 15th.
To give it a try, select a device and navigate to a specific instance. Click the drop down and select forecast.
A forecasting window will display. You can select the training data (time range used to forecast future behavior), and how far into the future you’d like to forecast. An estimated performance and 95% confidence upper and lower bound lines will be displayed.
See our capacity forecasting documentation for more information.
The Device Search functionality has been improved both for speed and functionality. Along with quicker results, you can now search by Group, Device, DataSource, or Instance name.
If you type in a general search term, samples from each matching type will be displayed. Clicking on a header, such as Instances(6) will narrow the search to that category:
The search will also update with the shortcut to search for that category. Options include:
Some other notable search options:
Selecting an item from the dropdown will update the main panel, but will not update the tree. This is to enable you to click around to find the correct entity. Clicking the breadcrumb in the main panel will update the tree.
Access Log entries can be programmatically retrieved via the API.
Many of the select boxes throughout the UI support glob expressions, but it can be tricky to figure where that’s true. We’ve started calling this out with an asterisk. Any field with an * supports glob, whether its groupname/* for all your subgroups, or !Group1 to exclude an item.
We’ve also made your options a little easier to navigate. Clicking in a field will give you a list of suggested results, and starting to type will clearly indicate which items match.
This has been implemented throughout Settings and the Dashboard and Widget configuration. It will be introduced throughout the rest of the application over the next few releases.
The threshold table got a little bit of love in this release. The initial display is a little easier to follow, making it easier to adjust datapoint thresholds and to understand which threshold is in effect.
