Tanzu Observability by Wavefront continuously adds new integrations to the existing set, and improves available integrations. We update our complete list of all integrations each time we add new integrations.

November 2022

We added the following integration in November 2022:

  • Tanzu Service Mesh:

    Tanzu Service Mesh provides advanced, end-to-end connectivity, security, and insights for modern applications across application end-users, microservices, APIs, and data. It enables compliance with Service Level Objectives (SLOs) and data protection and privacy regulations.

  • Tanzu Application Service – Made significant updates and improvements to the TAS integration system alerts. In addition, to improve customer experience, we have added new alerts and deleted the alerts that are no longer needed. For more information and troubleshooting steps, see Tanzu Application Service Alerts.

October 2022

Logs (Beta) Related Changes:

With the Initial Availability of our Logs (Beta) feature, we have made improvements to the following integrations:

  • Linux Host – Now contains Linux Logs Setup (Beta) instructions. If Logs (Beta) is enabled for you, you can set up your Linux integration to send logs to Tanzu Observability. For details on Tanzu Observability Logs (Beta), see Get Started with Logs (Beta). For detailed steps on setting up the Linux Host integration, see Linux Logs Setup (Beta).
  • Wavefront Usage – We added a Logs Stats section. It contains charts that track the amount of logs that are successfully delivered and successfully queried by the Wavefront service.

  • Wavefront Usage:
    • Made significant improvements to the Committed Rate vs Monthly Usage (PPS P95) for Billable and Usage (PPS) vs Remaining Balance (PPS P95) for Burndown dashboards. You can use the data displayed on the dashboard that suits your commit contract. For example, if you have a billable commit contract, only the Committed Rate vs Monthly Usage (PPS P95) for Billable dashboard will contain charts populated with data. The Usage (PPS) vs Remaining Balance (PPS P95) for Burndown dashboard will be empty.
