Click to trace from a stacked graph

Seeing something interesting in that stacked graph view of your tracing dataset? You can now click to view the trace!


Edit Derived Columns Beta Released

Many of you have requested the ability to edit your derived columns. This beta functionality is now available to everyone.

We now also show notification if your derived column is in use in a board, trigger or SLO so that you know what will be impacted if you edit or delete a derived column.

Read all about the new features here:

Python Beeline now supports asyncio

As of 2.11.0, the Honeycomb Python Beeline supports asyncio and asynchronous traces. See the docs for more info.

Honeycomb OpenTracing Proxy v2.1.0

We've published a new release of the Honeycomb OpenTracing Proxy. Version 2.1.0 includes:

  • Support for the Zipkin V2 format
  • A fix for an issue with binary annotations

Previously released version 2.0.0 includes:

  • A fix to ensure trace IDs are always positive.

BubbleUp now availble while running Usage Mode

You are now able to use BubbleUp in Usage Mode (Unweighted Mode) while exploring how your sample rates are behaving.

Understanding your historical retention :)

Now in your Dataset Settings >> Overview tab, you'll find a graph of historical retention (that is, how far back you were able to query on that dataset on any given day). Being able to visualize how big of a time window of data was available to you; which is also key for understanding the impact of sampling on a dataset.


From Bubbleup to Traces

If you're looking at a BubbleUp, and see a traceid field, you can now just leap directly from the BubbleUp directly to the Trace.


Introducing the Event Latency History chart!

This graph displays a historical view of the difference between the timestamp on each event and when it reached Honeycomb, signifying the amount of delay in your pipeline.

Visit your dataset settings and overview tab to view.

This information can be helpful when trying to assess when your data will be present for querying in Honeycomb. Coming soon, we'll expose this information when creating triggers as well, so that you can make sure your trigger's query is capturing all your events.

Keep on zooming!

How detailed do your queries go? The query builder now lets you zoom into subsecond resolution. Just grab a region, magnify, hit "run query", and repeat!


Highlighted derived column expressions!

We now syntax highlight derived column expressions everywhere in the UI.

Ooooo, pretty! :)
