The Group By Parameter Is Case-Sensitive: With this release, when you apply the group by parameter to aggregation function queries, the grouping is case-sensitive. For more information and details, see Aggregation Functions and Tags Overview.

2023-18.x Release Notes

  • Upcoming Metrics Obsolescence Period Changes: Within the next releases we will change the metrics obsolescence period from 28 days to 14 days. This change will further improve your query performance. Here’s what you have to do:
    • If you are querying for a time series that has not reported points within the last 14 days, you must select to Include Obsolete Metrics for your charts or dashboards.
    • If the data you are querying for does have data points within the last 14 days, you do not need to do anything.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Alert Checking Frequency: When you create an alert, the default alert checking frequency is now set to 5 minutes. If you want to change the default value, define the Checking Frequency when you create or edit the alert. For more information on the checking frequency, see How Are Alerts Evaluated.
