And now, those new charts are live in DynECT! Here’s a breakdown of what’s new for you.
One of the first things our users will notice is that the graphs display much faster now. This was a number one complaint of our old graphing tool – both from inside and outside the organization. Believe me, we didn’t like the delay in seeing usage data anymore than you did!
We think they just look better too. But with that eye candy comes some great attributes like per data point tool tips. Just hover over a point on the chart and get the exact data displayed.
Many of you have dozens (or hundreds and in some cases. thousands) of zones on the DynECT Platform. That makes for a very crowded display in the aggregated zone view. Now you can select specific zones to turn off in the graph, allowing you to more easily compare the query load between specific sets of zones.
This also works on the Record Aggregate views, so you can remove the random record types from the display and focus in on the records you care about. This was a frequently requested feature from a number of users and we are thrilled to hand this over. Have fun!
One of the things we are most excited about is the ability to zoom in on a particular data set. This gives you nearly unlimited date range views outside of the canned options we provide. This is really useful for looking at a period of a small number of hours or a few days with the week or month.
There are more features coming your way, but we just wanted to get this faster rendering out to you NOW. Keep your eye out for even more useful data and as always, let us know what you think of things so far.
