This release includes full support for histogram charts.
Retrieve Ingested Span Logs with Spy
You can now retrieve ingested span logs with Spy with the existing trace ID, span ID, and the respective event that created the log.
Create Service Dashboards from a Template
You can now create your own service dashboard from our template and customize it to monitor the trace data sent by each service in your application. All charts in the current service dashboard are included in the template. You can add, remove, and customize charts, then save your service dashboard. See Create a Dashboard from a Tracing Template for details.
Note: To view data in these charts, your applications need to send trace data to Wavefront. See Instrument Your Applications for details.
Tracing UI Improvements
You can fine-tune the time window of your RED metrics charts on the tracing UI.
Display Dashboards on Large Demo Screens
Wavefront customers have asked for a version of dashboards that is suitable for large demo screens, for example, a large TV screen inside your enterprise. This type of setup has no time-out, doesn’t require authorization, and is read only.
Starting with this release, simple configuration of NGINX on an Ubuntu Linux VM that runs inside the network gets you the desired result.
