2024 updates

The visible and not-so-visible parts of Zenoss Cloud are updated regularly. This page highlights the visible new features or enhancements released in 2024.

February

This month's updates include the following enhancements:

Actions

The Actions service now includes the following enhancement:

  • Duration threshold: You can now refine your metric triggers by including duration with your minimum and maximum threshold values. The min/max over duration option is useful when you only want the trigger to alert you when a condition is met for more than a specified amount of time.

    For example, you might have a CPU utilization metric that regularly spikes over 90% utilization, but you only want to be alerted if the utilization exceeds 90% for longer than 45 minutes. In this example, you can set the max value to 90 and then set the duration threshold time to one hour and the percentage of the duration to 75%.

    Setting this option can reduce the noise of triggers that you typically ignore while focusing on the ones that are vital to your organization. For more information, see Add a metric trigger.

Dictionary service

Dictionary service now includes the following enhancement:

  • Field type: When you add a new dictionary entry for an entity field or event field, or if you edit an existing entry, you can now specify field type. This is a required field.

    For more information, see Adding and editing dictionary entries.

January

This month's updates include the following enhancements:

Events

The Events console now includes the following enhancements:

  • Create Event: You can now create an event in the Events console. While most events are programmatically created, manually creating events is useful if you want to test event mappings, event transformations, and triggers and notifications. For more information, see Create events in the Events console.

  • Event chart view: In the Events console, the column chart leverages new criteria for more precise analysis. Each column in the chart represents a slice of the selected time range. The events appear in the columns as defined by their First Seen and Last Seen criteria. Therefore, each event might appear in more than one column in the chart.

    Similar to the column chart, the heat map is also divided into slices of the time range that contain the events as defined by their First Seen and Last Seen criteria.

    For more information, see Events console.

Dashboards

The Dashboards view now includes the following enhancement:

  • Full-screen option for tiles: You can now enlarge an individual tile in your dashboard to fill the entire screen. This is useful when you want to examine tiles that contain long tables and extended details. To do so, open the options (three dots) menu on the tile and click Full screen.

    When finished, click X to close the full screen and return to your dashboard. For more information, see Dashboards.

Dictionary service

Dictionary service now includes the following enhancement:

  • Field type: When you add a new dictionary entry for an entity field or event field, or if you edit an existing entry, you can now specify field type. This is a required field.

    For more information, see Adding and editing dictionary entries.
