13. 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?timeline.to&timeline.ws=86400000&timeline.fm

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

The full URL will be https://<tenant and env>.instana.io/#/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?timeline.to&timeline.ws=86400000&timeline.fm
