Services

This feature isn't available to all Chronosphere users and might not be visible in your app. For information about enabling this feature in your environment, contact your salesperson or technical account manager.

Services provides efficient views into your services to help you discover ways of exploring your data.

Chronosphere provides a service page for each service. A service page generates queries and data visualizations related to that service, lists related monitors and alert statuses, and links to other Chronosphere features in one view. This helps you monitor services without the need to learn another query language or dashboard tool.

Service pages take advantage of other Chronosphere features, including tagged metrics, queries, data visualization panels, teams, and collections. To set up related monitors and alerts, see Monitors.

You can't edit or customize anything on a service page. If you want to build a customizable home page, see Team and Collection home pages. To design dashboards with customizable panels, see Dashboards. To write your own metrics queries, see Metrics Explorer.

The contents of service pages depend on configuration and metrics tagging methods that might require information provided when your Chronosphere tenant or the Services tool was configured for your organization. This information might be tailored to your organization or a specific service. For details, or if you need to update this information due to changes in your organization, contact Chronosphere Support.

Understand services

Services are automatically discovered and have limited customization.

You can't modify discovered service information, but you can add monitors and dashboards to services.

You can have both a service and a collection with the same slug. You can create a simple collection with the same name or slug as an existing service, and a discovered service can have the same slug as an existing collection.

View services

In the navigation menu select Services to view a tabular list of services.

To view a service's page, click its name in the table. Each service page displays interactive visualization panels, lists monitors and dashboards, and links to related traces and events if available.

Services are split into groups:

  • My services: Services owned by teams the user is assigned to.
  • All services: Services belonging to teams the user isn't assigned to.

Understand the services table

The services table displays summarized status information about your services.

Service status

The Status column displays the status for each service next to its title:

IconDescription
Has a currently alerting monitor that exceeds the defined critical conditions.
Has a currently alerting monitor that exceeds the defined warning conditions.
No monitors are currently alerting.
No defined monitors.

Alerts

The Alerts column displays a bar which updates based on the current number and level of alerts for each service. Services with more critical alerts display more red in the bar. Next to the bar is a summary of how many monitors are in an alert state, and of which type. For example, 4 critical, 2 warning alerts. Services without configured alerts display a gray bar.

Team

The team that owns the service.

Filter the table

You can filter and reorganize the information in the table.

To filter the table's contents by service name, click the Search services field and enter some or all of the service's name.

To filter the table by team, click the Select a Team dropdown and choose the team whose services you want to view. You can select multiple teams to list all services owned by any of the selected teams.
