AWS Integration now supports NLB etc.

As announced on this blog the other day, the service, one of Mackerel’s integratable notification partners, is ending on October 31st, 2017. Accompanying this, the im.kayac feature will no longer be available as a Mackerel notification destination.

If this affects you, check out the following blog entry for more details.

Anyways, here is this week’s update information.

Countermeasures taken against .io domain malfunction have been restored

As previously announced, Mackerel extended the judgment interval for connectivity monitoring as a countermeasure in response to the .io domain malfunction and has now been restored to its’ original interval on Tuesday, October 17th as scheduled.

Again, please update your agent to minimize the impact of the possible future .io domain failure. Check out last week’s entry for the content of the agent updates.

AWS Integration now supports NLB

The recently released AWS Network Load Balancer (NLB) is now also supported in AWS Integration.

Check out the following help page for more information on how to use it.

Graph guide now uniformly displayed

The guide which is displayed when hovering over a graph in the host detail screen, service details screen, etc. is now displayed in all other graphs within the same screen.

We think this will be handy for tasks such as investigating server resources.

Updates for Mackerel related OSS

mackerel-agent v0.47.0

  • The method for calculating the CPU usage rate in Linux was corrected
    • The guest usage rate is now subtracted from cpu.user
  • In AzureVM, an issue in which the program would abnormally end under certain circumstances was fixed

mackerel-agent-plugins v0.37.0

  • mackerel-plugin-mcrouter was added
    • However, it has not been added to the package, so you’ll need to build it yourself

Thank you to everyone who reported issues and contributed!

A Mackerel workshop for student/young working engineers
