I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow roles to be duplicated

    It'd be easier to create similar roles by duplicating existing ones rather than starting from scratch.

    • Make it easier to find metrics that haven't been recently reported.

      As the number of metrics grows, it becomes harder to identify metrics that have gone into disuse or are no longer being reported. The ability to sort by last report time or a view that shows "hasn't reported in x weeks / months" metrics, would be super helpful for managing our usage.

      • Show names of the servers at the min and max on range charts

        When the number of servers is over the breakout limit there is no way to know which server is at the mix or max of the range chart. E.g. looking at Swap used across 100 servers you can see on the range chart that one might be using a ton of swap but there's no way to see which server it is.

        • Make the 'No Data' alert times configurable per environment or role

          Would be nice to be able to configure these per environment instead of account-wide. E.g. staging = 1 hour, production = 10 minutes.

          • Support fallback values for config lookups

            When using config lookups for plugins, I'd like to be able to specify a default value for hosts that don't have the variable configured in their plugins.properties file

            • Thermostat-style Triggers

              Triggers should be more like a thermostat - they need to hit a high (or low) value to activate, but then they need to hit a different low (or high) value to deactivate. Just like a regular thermostat on the furnace in a house, you don't want it to turn on and off a hundred times a day as the temperature fluctuates between 68 and 69 degrees (or, ahem, 72 and 73 degrees...); you want it to activate when the temperature drops to 69 and then stay on until it gets to 73.

              And unlike a thermostat, you want to…

              • Add Environment Overview Page with All Alerts for Every Environment

                I would like to see an environment overview page with all alerts for every environment. If I had 5+ environments, I currently have to click on each one to check what the current alerts are. Would be nicer to have a single alerts page for all environments.

                See this similar feature request - https://scout.uservoice.com/forums/47-general/suggestions/5409647-display-the-number-of-current-alerts-per-environme

                • Improve the Dashboard Temporal Navigator

                  I think the time period selector would benefit from either more options (e.g. 26 hours, 2 days, ...) or the ability to specify a custom time period.

                  • Implement Dashboard Folders

                    It is currently possible to create enough Dashboards that one has to scroll within the Dashboard selection drop down to reach some of the dashboards. I think it would be a better user experience if one was able to create and use a multi-tiered Dashboard folder hierarchy.

                          • use MemAvailable for 3.14+ kernels and account for Slab memory for lower kernels

                            The Memory overview is not accurate and is giving us false alerts. This because our Slab memory usage is high. But because most of the Slab memory is reclaimed by the kernel as needed, it shouldn't be counted as used memory.

                            cat /proc/meminfo | grep SReclaimable

                            3.14+ kernels have `/proc/meminfo | grep MemAvailable` to determine memory usage accurately.

                            The old methods are no longer accurate. See:
                            https://linuxwithraj.wordpress.com/2015/03/10/memory-utilization-from-procmeminfo-memavailable/

                            • Customizable email notifications for alerts

                              Currently, in the alert email notification’s subject, Scout sends the ‘Alert’ and ‘Back to Normal’ text along with the Hostname of the server where the alert has been generated and also the timestamp. However, if we get multiple such alerts for different servers or for different triggers on the same server, it is very difficult to track the corresponding ‘Back to Normal’ email notification.

                              If the notifications of the same trigger+server (‘alert’ or ‘Back to normal’), would have the same subject line, it would be a lot more easier to track down the open alerts via using “Arrange By: Conversation”…

                              • Allow disabling of "no data" notifications for all servers

                                While I like that the "no data" alerts have been pushed back to 30 minutes (per http://blog.scoutapp.com/articles/2011/10/18/our-poor-choice-of-words-server-down-alerts-are-now-no-data-alerts), we don't want this alert to happen at all.

                                We *do* have external monitoring on all our servers and they're all load balanced so if one goes down we don't want Scout alerting us to it as well.

                                Thanks,
                                Chris

                                  It would be nice to be able to start (ie. realtime) all graphs at once without having to click each one. Similarly to stop them all.

                                    • Delete Markers via API

                                      The Scout API allows the creation of markers, but provides no clear way to delete them. It would be nice to be able to delete markers either after a period of time, or individually as needed.

                                      • Restrict markers by Server/Role/Environment

                                        The Scout API allows markers to be generated, but they appear to be account wide only. It would be great to be able to create a marker that was limited to: An individual server, a Role, or an Environment.
