Well then, now on to this week’s update information.

【Pre-release notice】mkr hosts command return time format to change

Please note that the following modifications will be made to the mkr command with this week’s release (the week of April 9th).

The createdAt value included in the execution result of mkr hosts and mkr status will change to ISO8601 format. (Example: 2018-04-09T08:07:06+09:00)

Additionally, the time zone follows the environment in which the command is executed.

host ID now displayed from the GUI

The host IDs that are recorded in the following files can now be seen from the GUI.

  • LinuxOS: /var/lib/mackerel-agent/id
  • WindowsOS: id file inside the installation folder

The ID is now displayed directly under the host name in the host details screen. This will make it more convenient to copy and paste when using in command line or code.
