New and changed Wavefront integrations released in 2021

Wavefront continuously adds new integrations to the existing set, and improves available integrations.

This document lists new and changed integrations for 2021. For earlier releases, see New and Changed Integrations in 2019-2020.

December 2021

We added the following integration in December 2021:

  • vRealize Operations Integration v1

    This initial version of the integration currently fetches only vCenter Server adapter resources, such as Cluster Compute Resource and Datastore. We will add more features to this integration in future releases. For information about setting up the integration, the current limitations and caveats, see vRealize Operations Integration Overview.

  • Photon OS Host

    Now you can monitor hosts running Photon OS. Photon OS is an open-source minimalist Linux operating system from VMware that is optimized for cloud computing platforms, VMware vSphere deployments, and applications native to the cloud.

Made improvements to the following integrations and dashboards in December 2021:

  • Kubernetes – Updated the Kubernetes Collector Troubleshooting dashboard to communicate the proxy version.
  • Tanzu Application Service – Added a new out-of-the-box dashboard to monitor the doppler server.
  • Microsoft Azure – Updated the setup steps for getting the application ID.

November 2021

We added the following integration in November 2021:

  • AVI Networks

    Now, NSX Advance Load Balancer (AVI Networks) can be monitored by using out-of-the-box dashboards provided in the AVI Networks (NSX ALB) integration tile. This integration is developed and created by the community and falls into to the new Community Integrations section of the Wavefront Integrations page. This is the first integration in this category. We do not validate the community integrations and they are not fully supported by the Tanzu Observability by Wavefront team.

Made improvements to the following integrations and dashboards in November 2021:

  • Data Platforms – Made query updates in health charts under the Mission Control section.
  • Kubernetes:
    • Updated the queries in the dashboard charts to show correct values in single stat charts.
    • Updated the queries in the dashboards to fix NO DATA issues.
  • Tanzu Application Service – Updated the Gorouter dashboard with new charts that show Gorouter metrics in histograms and monitor the router health.
  • RabbitMQ – Updated the RabbitMQ integration and added an out-of-the-box dashboard and setup steps to monitor Rabbit MQ on Kubernetes.
  • Redis – Updated the Redis integration and added an out-of-the-box dashboard and setup steps to monitor Redis on Kubernetes.

October 2021

Made improvements to the following integrations and dashboards in October 2021:

  • Tanzu GemFire – Updated the Tanzu GemFire integration setup steps and added a new out-of-the-box dashboard to monitor Tanzu GemFire standalone deployment.
  • Kubernetes – Made fixes to queries, so that they show correct values for the Wavefront Collector and Wavefront proxy restarts.
  • Azure Kubernetes – Made fixes to queries, so that they show correct values for running and pending pods.

September 2021

Made improvements to the following integrations and dashboards in September 2021:

  • Pivotal Cloud Foundry:
    • We now have Tanzu Application Service integration to support Tanzu Application Service 2.9 and later. We deprecated the Pivotal Cloud Foundry Integration as part of the renaming of Pivotal Cloud Foundry to Tanzu Application Service. The Pivotal Cloud Foundry integration which supports versions 2.2 to 2.8 is moved to the list of Archived integrations.

      As a best practice, we recommend that you uninstall all PCF Dashboards before migrating to the Tanzu Application Service integration. See installing and uninstalling integration dashboards.

      [[inputs.mem]]
        name_prefix="win."
      
    2. Replace the line starting with Counters under [[inputs.win_perf_counters.object]], with the following line:
