We made it! The end of 2017 is upon us, as is the last release of the year. We are finishing 2017 on a high note with several major improvements to our platform. Among the changes are an overhauled in-app support flow as well as [even more] cloud monitoring coverage, specifically for AWS Billing.
v.98 will be rolled out through mid-December.
Improved AWS Billing Monitoring
We have added support for AWS billing monitoring via the AWS Cost & Usage report. Although we have monitored AWS billing data for a long time via the AWS Detailed Billing Report, this new method is more dynamic and comprehensive. We have released a new set of multi-instance DataSources for this feature which monitor cost by account, region, service and operation by default. All instances are auto-discovered. A new multi-instance “Cost By Tag” DataSource has also been published. You will find these new DataSources useful for tracking cost per account for consolidated billing setups, cost by region and service, and to see what operations (across services) are requiring the most spend.
Overhauled Support Flow
We have implemented a brand new support flow in our platform! The new design is more consistent with the rest of our UI and includes several key functionality improvements, including:
*Note that we previously announced an LM Cloud feature that allowed users to choose to continue data collection for stopped and terminated cloud resources, which enables more comprehensive status monitoring. Due to performance concerns and other unforeseen complications, this feature has been removed from v98 and will be re-introduced in a future release.
