🎉 New Features

Hourly Anomaly Detection and Alerting

  • Since many users are running Chaos Genius on live data, they need faster anomaly detection and alerting, so we've added support to run anomaly detection and alerting at an hourly level.
  • Now users have the ability to run Anomaly Detection on KPIs every hour and observe real-time changes to their data.
  • Users can get hourly updates on slack or email by setting up hourly alerts for their KPIs.

Event Alerts

  • You can now set up alerts to monitor various events in your data.
  • Alerts can be set up for the following events:
  • If you have a new entry added to your data.
  • If there is any change (addition or deletion) to your data.
  • If you have missing data
  • You can set the alert frequency to either daily or hourly.

Druid support (Experimental)

  • Druid is an open-source data store that can run super-fast queries on data and provides data ingestion and fast data aggregation.
  • We currently only support the sum and count aggregations with druid but we’ll be adding mean and unique soon, so keep on the lookout for that.
  • The supported authorizations in druid are anonymous (without a username, password) and basic auth

Bug fixes

  • Back-filling of missing data not occurring at the edges for anomaly #730
  • Sometimes alerts are not triggered even though anomalies exist in sub-dimensions #743
  • The expected range in alerts can be confusing when negative numbers are involved #725
  • Fixed search bug across multiple pages #826
  • Fixed bug which didn't accept test query payload #823
