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.
Three Day Lookback
The lookback feature provides access to an additional 48 hours of metrics data, for a total of 72 hours. The data is displayed in 24 hour increments.
Restart events are now available in the Events table for Common Runtime users. A restart event indicates that for your app, one or more dynos of a given type were restarted during that time interval. Multiple restarts will show up as one event for each 1 or 10 minute interval (depending on your selected resolution). There are three categories of restart events:
- user initiated, including manual restarts and restarts associated with deployments, configuration changes, and dyno type changes
- platform initiated, daily scheduled dyno restart (shown as daily restarts in the logs)
- platform initiated restarts after unexpected runtime crashes (shown as relocations in the logs)
Data Lag Indicator
To help differentiate between application outages and missing metrics data we’ve released a beta feature that highlights data gaps.
You can provide feedback through the Labs Feature dialog or by emailing the Dashboard Metrics team directly at email@example.com. Please drop us a line and let us know what you think.
