I’m pleased to announce that VividCortex has just released a number of new features since our last product update. If you have any questions regarding any of the updates below, contact us!Short URLs
You can now share links with your coworkers and collaborate in VividCortex using URLs short enough to be copied and pasted into emails and chat apps, letting you get work done faster with less hassle. Just click the Link icon in the top right of the screen and copy the URL:
When anyone with appropriate permissions clicks the link, they’ll be taken directly to the URL you were looking at when you grabbed the link. Click “Freeze Time Range” to let your coworkers see the time frame you were viewing, no matter when they click the link. For more details, take a look at our documentation here.
Events on Charts
An important part of monitoring your database is watching for changes in performance that occur after an event such as an upgrade, a code deployment, or a settings change. To make viewing the effects of these changes easier, we’ve added the ability to plot events on charts and sparklines throughout the app. Click the megaphone icon in the top right corner and select an event you’d like to see plotted:
To make Events on Charts even more useful, you can now send your own custom events to the VividCortex API, which can then be plotted to examine the effects of those changes. Some of our customers send an event to the API every time they have a code deployment, which is one of the most powerful use-cases. For more information about sending custom events, including sample code, check out our documentation.
Custom Dashboards are now available to all customers, letting you create a collection of charts which display exactly the data you need to resolve your issues faster. You can read our original update about custom dashboards in this earlier post.
We’ve made it easier to see if VividCortex is having trouble connecting to your database because the credentials have changed or are no longer valid:
We hope you take advantage of theses new features. If you have any questions or suggestions on how we can make VividCortex even better we'd love to hear from you. Contact us here anytime!
