Search using numeric and boolean operators

Release Date: Apr 18, 2024

Affected Sections: Traces

Today, we’re bringing new capabilities to our search function as it now supports numeric and boolean operators! This expands the array of use cases you can investigate and further expands your ability to filter out everything that is not relevant.

Answer more questions about your data by searching based on min/max and true/false values.

Some examples of what you can now search for:

  1. Show traces with long durations: duration_seconds>1 (see example below)

  2. Show traces with large request body: request_size_bytes>10000

  3. Show non-encrypted traffic facing external APIs: is_external:true is_encrypted:false

View & search logs within workloads context

Release Date: Apr 16, 2024

Affected Sections: Workloads

You can now leverage our new Logs tab from any workload's information page to view and search all relevant logs directly within the context of a specific workload.

Stay within the context of the selected workload while navigating through the different workload data tabs (Infrastructure, Resources, APIs, etc.), now containing even more valuable insights on the selected workload to ensure a seamless investigation process:

  • Contextual log management: View logs that are specifically relevant to the workload and namespace you are investigating.

  • Cut through the noise: Leverage our filters and search function to effectively slice and dice the workload's logs, mirroring the experience found in the general Logs section.

More exciting updates are coming up soon to allow you to monitor and investigate your environment down to the workloads level, including out-of-the-box Monitors for workload logs.
