Replay (beta):
  • Create your SLOs with historical data. Thanks to Replay, you won't need to wait days or weeks to see how your service is performing after creating an SLO; you'll be able to get an accurate picture almost immediately by drawing on past data from a specified period of time.
  • Replay is a beta feature available for DataDog , Prometheus, AWS Managed Prometheus, Graphite, and Splunk. You can now create SLOs with historical data using the above-mentioned data sources. Stay tuned, we will be gradually expanding the list of supported data sources.

Lightstep SLI presentation: We introduced a new option on the SLO details panel to show the ratio SLO in operations/second, so that you can easily correlate graphs in Nobl9 and in Lightstep.
