Release 574 of Sysdig Monitor was released May 25 and is a big uplift in functionality, performance, and management. We suggest all customers upgrade as soon as possible. Here are the most important features, categorized:
Data, Visualization & UI improvements
Dashboard re-design: Dashboards have received a significant functionality update. Highlights include: creating a blank dashboard, ability to modify dashboard scope, copy dashboards between teams, save/undo dashboard layouts and more.
New time series charts/ legends/ event overlays: Dramatically improved experience working with time charts, their associated legends and event overlays.
Docker Swarm support: Monitoring for environments managed by Docker Swarm. This includes metrics, metadata, and pre-built views.
Percentiles (beta): Turn on up to 4 percentiles within the agent, on a per-agent basis.
Suggest mode (opt in): Suggest mode cleans up your UI by hiding metrics and views that you are not collecting. This is an opt-in, per-user feature.
Expose more than top 10 values: You will no longer be limited to seeing only the top 10 values in a table. You can see all values by paginating through the table.
Wildcards to specify scope in Alerts and Dashboards: Now you can use operators such as 'in' , 'not in', 'contains', 'does not contain' and 'starts with' to set your scope in a flexible manner.
New alerting workflow: We've simplified the alert UI to allow you to create well-tuned alerts faster.
Alert on events (beta): Alerts may now be triggered off of an event, in addition to a metric value.
Speed and Performance Improvements
Accelerated Dashboards/Explore: We've refactored the frontend application to respond up to 10x faster when loading data.
Accelerated API: We've optimized query handling within the API to more efficiently handle large queries.
LDAP with auto-migration: Sysdig Monitor supports integration with LDAP and can now automatically synchronize LDAP and non-LDAP users.
Teams improvements: You can now define the default team where unassigned users will automatically be placed. The new 'Admin Team' replaces the old 'Default Team'.
Metric filtering: You can now include or exclude certain metrics to avoid hitting metric limits.
Disable agent installation for non-admin users: Admins can now have the choice to prevent non-admin users from installing agents by hiding the default access key.
Multiple access keys: For users who need to regularly expire access keys, agents can now accept multiple keys. This simplifies the process of expiring an older key and rotating to a new one.
ElasticSearch 5.1.1 migration: Increased performance for event storage.
