- Breaking changes
Build 249 is released on 16 May 2023.
Tibco EMS sensor
Tibco EMS sensor is improved to support monitoring of all the topics and queues of a Tibco EMS instance. These changes might impact not only the Tibco EMS sensor but also the Instana backend and the Instana UI and result in the loss of historical data. The historical data might be present in the database but does not appear in the Instana UI.
Kong API Gateway
A new sensor that monitors Kong API Gateway is available now as Open Beta. It collects metrics from Kong API Gateway. The metrics list might vary depending on whether the Prometheus plug-in is used. For more information, see Monitoring Kong API Gateway (Open Beta).
Monitoring Synthetic PoP
A new sensor is delivered to monitor the health of Instana Synthetic PoP and fire an event in case of an issue. For more information, see Monitoring Synthetic PoP.
Tibco EMS: Multiple topic and queue monitoring
Tibco EMS sensor supports the monitoring of more than 180 topics and queues.
Workload version and management
When you are viewing workloads in the Instana UI, such as Deployments, DeploymentConfigs, DaemonSets, CronJobs, Jobs, and Pods, you can see the version of the workload. In addition to the version, you can see an icon that indicates whether the workload is managed by Helm or Kustomize. The version and icon are displayed in the header alongside the name of the workload that is viewed if the version and the workload management information are available.
Unrestricted access for members in the Owner group
Members of the Owner group now have unrestricted effective permissions and scope access, regardless of their membership in any other groups. A new warning message is displayed on the user detail page when such a combination of group memberships is configured for a user.
Enhancing the association between Kubernetes nodes and infrastructure hosts
A feature is added to enhance the association between Kubernetes nodes and infrastructure hosts. To further improve the monitoring capabilities, a sortable column titled "Monitored by Instana" is introduced on the Nodes tab in Platforms > Kubernetes > Clusters. This column provides a direct link to the corresponding hosts managed by Instana. With this enhancement, you can easily go from the nodes list to specific hosts.
IBM MQ sensor
Channel Type metric is added to support Dynamic Focus Query for events.
Synthetic monitoring: Enhanced audit log messages
The audit log messages for Synthetic monitoring now include the ID of the affected resource. For example, if a Synthetic test is modified or deleted by using either the API or the Instana UI, the test ID is included in the audit log message. Similarly, if a Synthetic location is deleted, the location ID appears in the audit log message.
Synthetic PoP: Support external secrets
Now you can use your own secrets when you deploy Synthetic PoP with the download key, Instana key, Redis password, and proxy username or password. For more information, see Using external secrets.
A column is added in the Queue table to represent the count of current messages.
IBM MQ sensor
Current Publish Count metric is fixed. Now, this metric represents the total number of published messages made by all publications (publishers) that are currently being published to this topic.
IBM MQ tracing
The length of the IBM MQ message header
X_INSTANA_T, which contains the Instana trace ID, is changed to 16 characters in length.
Mobile App monitoring
React-native agent 1.11.0 and Flutter agent 2.4.1 use Instana Android SDK 5.2.4, which fixes a bug in the exception handling for closed stream in HttpURLConnection.
Synthetic monitoring: Filtering on the GetTestSummaryList API
Previously, filtering when querying
getTestSummaryList failed to return correct results for any operator other than
EQUALS. Now, all filter operators on the
getTestSummaryList API work as intended.
Pod health indicator
A bug in the pods list in the Instana UI is fixed. Previously, pods with a
completed status displayed the health indicator even in case of no open issues. Now, pods with a
completed status no longer show a health
