Heroku Labs: Application Metrics Beta Channel
Last updated 20 February 2019
Application metrics beta panel is disabled and removed from the dashboard since all main active beta features have successfully reached a GA state. We’ll return the panel as soon as there are new beta features to share. Until then, you can request access to existing language metrics private beta features via the Preferences menu at the top right corner of the dashboard under the Metrics tab.
An opt-in labs channel is available for the Dashboard Metrics, which allows users to preview and comment on upcoming features.
How to opt in
To opt into the beta using the Dashboard, navigate to the Dashboard Metrics page.
To opt in from the Heroku CLI type:
$ heroku labs:enable metrics-beta
How to opt out
To opt out of the beta using the Dashboard, click the link beside the Labs Features button in the Metrics UI.
To opt out using the Heroku CLI type:
$ heroku labs:disable metrics-beta
Individual beta features are enabled and disabled through the Lab Features dialog. Note that not all beta features will be available to all dyno types upon release to general audience. If there are additional features you would like to see let us know.
Go language metrics
For Go users language runtime metrics, including heap and non-heap memory and GC activity, heap objects and Goroutine count are available. Please refer the the Language Metrics documentation for installation instructions and more details on the feature.
Once the metrics agent is installed plots are enabled through the Language Metrics beta feature.
The labs feature allows you to reorder individual metrics plots as a persistent, per process setting.
You can provide feedback through the Labs Feature dialog or by emailing the Dashboard Metrics team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please drop us a line and let us know what you think.
