Instana announced enhancements to its Unbounded Analytics platform for even faster and easier detailed analysis across the company’s enterprise observability platform.

Enhanced, in-depth search queries go beyond the dashboard and enable DevOps workers and Operations engineers to investigate every metric of interest, and all the applications and services impacted in detail. It also lets them identify potential problems and create alerts to provide advanced warning and enable intelligent remedial actions.

“Instana’s Unbounded Analytics engine delivers a powerful method for users to optimize their use of the massive amount of observability data available,” said Chris Farrell, Technical Director and APM Strategist at Instana. “Delivering advanced search capabilities throughout Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform allows users to focus discovery on the most relevant details even fasterBoolean expression capabilities make filtering even more powerful, and faceted search mechanisms let users drill down into the details without manual search fields.”

New enhancements in the search interface include:

- Faceted search: Apply filters quickly through faceted classification

- Common search categories: Search by applications, services, endpoints, and technologies

- Grouping: Group your search results according to http path or other criteria

- Drill-down: Move from tables to detailed information in just a few clicks

- Sorting: Sort your data by ascending or descending order

- Boolean expressions: Use “and” and “or” variables to gain more precise search results

- Bracketed queries: Advanced queries allow even more sophisticated drill down filters

APM and observability platforms typically provide dashboards for high-level metrics, but they sometimes fall short when users need more detail. Users lose valuable time to manual searches, confusing interfaces, and incomplete information – and their customers suffer. Updates to Instana’s Unbounded Analytics save critical time that could be the difference between proactive resolution and costly service downtime.

Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform discovers and maps all applications, services, infrastructures, events, and their interdependencies automatically. Instana ingests all observability metrics, traces each request, profiles every process, and updates application dependency maps in real time to deliver context and actionable feedback. Instana never uses sampling or partial traces ever. Instana Analytics enhancements optimize application performance, enable innovation, and mitigate risk to help DevOps add value and efficiency to the pipeline.
