Change History

Library for macOS

The macOS library provides insights into your machine’s performance. This integration is designed for sending measurements to Librato without the need to access infrastructure that you don’t have easy access to.

Install instructions are here.

SaltStack Support

This adds a returner function to SaltStack, allowing metrics from the Salt runner to be gathered from salt minions and reported to Librato.

Collection Agent: collectd

Users with tag enabled accounts are now able to use collectd. Although we recommend using the Librato Agent (which is based on collectd) there may be situations where using 'vanilla' collectd is necessary. 

Librato Agent Plugin: Varnish

This integration imports tag supported measurements from Varnish, a web application accelerator which speeds delivery of your HTTP content and dynamic websites by an order of magnitude.

Shared Space support added for tag enabled accounts

Users with tag enabled accounts will now be able to create publicly shareable, read-only dashboards.. Shared Spaces can be shared with anyone using a hidden URL, providing a live view of the selected Space.

Librato Agent Plugin: HAProxy

This integration imports tag supported measurements from a HAProxy server and the respective front-end and backend proxies via the Librato Agent.

Librato-rails updated to v2.0

This update imports tag supported measurements from a Rails server via the Librato Agent. for accounts not utilizing tag supported measurements, librato-rails 1.x.x will still need to be used as this update is not backwards compatible for source based measurements.

Installation instructions can be found in the Rails Knowledge Base article.

Tagged Metrics Support

Tagged metrics support is now available for new accounts. This release constitutes a significant change in our data model, moving from two dimensions (metric + source) to a multidimensional model (metric + tags). You can now add multiple tags to each measurement, allowing you to filter and group your metrics by many dimensions. The Knowledge Base and API documentation are now focused on tagged metrics.

For existing accounts using source based metrics, please reach out to support@librato.com if you are interested in adding support for tags. We are still actively working on a transition plan. Documentation for source based metrics is now in the Knowledge Base Archive and the API Archive.

The following integrations are supported upon the initial release:

AWS Services: Burst balance chart for EBS

We added a chart to the curated AWS EBS Space that shows the current Burst Balance level. AWS provides a Burst Balance metric for each General Purpose (SSD) volume. The metric is expressed as percentage; 100% means that the volume has accumulated the maximum number of credits. 

Heroku Availability Metric

The Heroku addon Overview Space now includes a chart that measures your app's uptime. The Big Number chart shows app availability in percent (e.g. 99.9999%) and changes color based on pre-set thresholds.
