Instana Videos for Beginners

We have recorded some "Instana for Beginners" videos and decided to post them in this KB article.
The videos are also available as a playlist on youtube.
We hope you find these videos useful. 

  1. Instana Quick Overview Videos (English, Hebrew, Japanese) -  Instana Quick Overview,  אינסטנה סקירת מוצר  .  Instana概要
  2. A video showing the instana redesigned UI
  3. Instana UI Tips and Tricks
  4. How do I...? 
  5. Instana Robot-Shop example application 
  6. Transaction analysis using Instana Analyze Dashboard  

I have also created a very simple text file with analysis queries that you can use (analysis.txt attached to this document). Using this file is easy, all you have to do is copy the text for the query to your environment URL. For example if you want to see calls grouped by HTTP status for the last 24 hours, all you have to do is add this text to the end of your tenant URL.   /#/analyze;callList.dataSource=calls;callList.groupBy=(name~call.http.status)~;groups.metrics=!(metric~latency~aggregation~MEAN)(metric~errors~aggregation~MEAN)~;groups.orderBy=latency_MEAN_Agg;groups.orderDirection=DESC;callList.tagFilter?

If your environment URL is  https://<tenant and env>

The full URL will be https://<tenant and env>;callList.dataSource=calls;callList.groupBy=(name~call.http.status)~;groups.metrics=!(metric~latency~aggregation~MEAN)(metric~errors~aggregation~MEAN)~;groups.orderBy=latency_MEAN_Agg;groups.orderDirection=DESC;callList.tagFilter?
