New - We are excited to announce the release of the Metrics filter operator. You can use the filter operator to limit the results returned by a metric query. There are several ways you can restrict results whether by aggregation function, or on how many times the value of individual data points meet a value condition over a particular duration.

Update - We’ve updated the Host Metrics Source to improve your metrics query experience. We’ve added a new dimension to the network interface metrics that the source collects: description. So, now you can query network interface metrics by the network interface description.

When used in combination with our Enterprise Audit Apps, Health Events provide a proactive monitoring framework, differentiated from our competitors’ reactive solutions, where you need to debug data collection after having suffered data loss or downtime. At present, Health Events provide observability for Collectors and Sources, however, the framework will be extended to other areas of our service as development continues.
