Today we’re launching a big upgrade to Instrumental’s time navigation. Before, Instrumental always showed data relative to now, and graphs would always update with new data. That’s great for every-day use. But sometimes, like during incident investigation and root cause analysis, it’s really useful to look at specific start/end dates and times. Well, now you can!
And since you don’t always want graphs to update while you’re looking at them, we added the ability to pause your current view.
We’ve also made it easy to scroll back through time using standard durations. This is a great way to quickly find an incident or event without knowing exact dates and times.
And just like before, time settings are preserved in the URL. To share your current view, just copy and paste.
We’re incredibly excited to get these features into your hands – and ours!
