Build 185




Instana now integrates with IBM MQ so you can monitor the performance of your Queue Manager instances alongside related applications and the infrastructure it runs on. This includes a builtin dashboard displaying the key metrics about your instances’ availability, number of messages, connections, queues, and more. See the IBM MQ docs for more information.

SLO Widget

Instana now enables users to create widgets for SLOs, in order to display and analyze the performance of your services over time. As part of the creation of SLO widgets, you can choose to create either Time-based or Event-based SLI configurations. For more information, see the Service Level Objectives docs.
