Our new graph grouping feature is live! We’re super excited about this update – groups have been one of our most requested features, and it’s already making our lives easier. Let’s take a look at how you can use it!
Creating a new group from your dashboard is easy:
After creating a new group and giving it a useful name, you can move a graph to your group like so:
Graphs added to a group will disappear from your default dashboard view. You can manage graphs inside a group the same way you’ve managed them from your default dashboard: repositioning graphs by dragging and dropping them into place, renaming graphs, deleting graphs and so on.
You can also remove a graph from a group. Any graphs removed from a group are sent back to your default dashboard view. This won’t actually delete your graphs!
What about creating a temporary group of graphs? Maybe you’re testing an infrastructure change and you don’t need those server monitoring graphs hanging around forever. Never fear! Deleting a group is also really easy, and will also send any graphs in that group back to your default dashboard view:
We’ve got dozens of graphs for monitoring application and server performance in Instrumental. Now we’ve also created two groups of related graphs: one for tracking metric collection, and another for monitoring performance after deploying new code to production.
Instrumental is all about customized application monitoring, and grouping makes it easier for you to keep an eye on the metrics that matter to your app.
