The latest release of the Sematext Agent cuts down the CPU and memory footprint by almost a half! If you haven’t updated your Sematext Agent instances in a while, now’s the time to do it.
We’ve completely reworked the event pipeline for intercommunication within the agent. It’s now replaced with an even more lightweight version. This, alongside a significant number of low-level tweaks, cut the already tiny CPU usage by a third, while cutting the memory usage in half!
Meanwhile, we took the liberty to add even more data collection features for you, such as even more detailed process metrics. But, you’ll have to wait and see what we have in store for you there. You’ll have access to it in Sematext very soon.
Now you want to update Sematext Agent, don’t you? It’s simple, check it out.
We’re excited to give you the new Chart Builder and hope you’ll enjoy using it as much as we’ve enjoyed developing it!
Besides its complete visual overhaul, we’ve made it more powerful and easier to use. You can select one or more metrics data series to chart and use mathematical operations and functions to apply transformations to them. You can also filter, group, and roll up metrics by various criteria, as well as style them to your heart’s content. If you are a Sematext power user you might like the new support for variables, which are used to dynamically filter and group charts by tags.
Charts you create with Chart Builder will be added to your dashboards and reports as dashboard components.
You will soon be able to use Chart Builder with your logs in Sematext as well. Stay tuned!
We now show a more detailed load time breakdown whenever we have the data available. Hard page loads, same-origin HTTP requests and resources have detailed load time breakdown.
This breakdown helps you understand which part of the process affects your load times the most. Read more in the documentation to understand what each part means.
The new Group By selector allows you to slice the data and find performance differences between browsers, countries, device types, etc. Click on the Group By selector next to the filters and select the field to get started.
Group by also works well in combination with filters.
If you have defined any custom tags for your users, you can group by those as well.
Resources pages will give you detailed information about each resource that was fetched while loading your website.
This includes images, fonts, stylesheets, and other media. To better understand the metrics shown in the table, read more in the documentation.
