observIQ Cloud Log Management Platform Cumulative Release Notes – 10.1.2021

by Paul S on October 1, 2021

Lots of big changes are coming your way, but our favorite is arm support. Arm is a powerful architecture that is taking over in the form of raspberry pi and arm-based kubernetes. observIQ is the first cloud observability platform to natively support log management for arm-based environments.

Features

  • Arm-based support
    • observIQ’s log agent now supports arm-based platforms and networks, such as raspberry pi, and kubernetes arm environments.
  • Single click agent upgrade
    • observIQ is constantly improving our agent. Now, when an update is available, a single-click update button appears on any available sources in observIQ.
  • Live Tail 
    • Added collapsable log lines with full information
    • Click the carrot on the left of a log line during a live tail session to see everything included in the log

Changes

  • Daily limit notifications for free tier
    • Automatic email notification if 3GB daily limit is reached by free tier users
  • Live Tail sessions start automatically
    • When navigating from Explore or Fleet, Live Tail sessions will play as soon as the page loads

  • Extended retention support for S3 endpoints other than AWS
    • We will continue adding support for more S3 endpoints

    • It’s not hard, but now it’s even easier with in-depth guides
