ColdFusion (2018 release) Performance Monitoring Toolset Update 2

Read on to know what's new and changed in Update 2 of ColdFusion (2018 release) Performance Monitoring Toolset.

Datastore enhancements

Elasticsearch already supports SSL and Authentication, but in earlier releases, Elasticsearch used SSL and Authentication, then ColdFusion and Performance Monitoring Toolset were unable to communicate with Elasticsearch.

In this release, ColdFusion and Performance Monitoring Toolset can communicate with Datastore when it’s running over SSL and using Authentication.

When Datastore runs over SSL and uses Authentication, it remains secured.

For more information, see Authentication and SSL support in Datastore.

Delete data from Datastore

In the Purge section, there is a new tab Datastore.

Here you can see all data based on indices, which is data grouped by date. In an index, a full day’s data is stored.

You can also delete an index to free up disk space. You can delete the request indices for the Datastore. Typically, you’d delete an index to free up system space.

You can also delete a specific index from the list. To delete any index in the table, click Delete.

Delete data on a schedule

You can use the scheduler to delete data periodically. The depends on the frequency and data older than options, and based on the values defined, the scheduler will run and will delete data, which is older than the specified amount of days.

The scheduler, in this example, executes every day and deletes data that is older than seven days.

By default, the value for data deletion scheduler is 7 and 1 days. The data deletion scheduler is disabled by default.

Clear alerts

Clear all alerts that you receive. To delete the alerts, navigate to the Alerts raised page, and click the bin icon.

Clear a single alert by selecting the alert and clicking the Bin button.

Also choose multiple alerts and clear all by clicking the Bin button (highlighted). This will clear all the alerts in the system.

Note: You can select up to 100 alerts at a time.

Capture requests that exceed a certain threshold

In the Advanced monitoring section, you can capture only those requests that exceed a specified threshold. A case in point is you want to log requests that take more than 30 seconds.
