See how to leverage SLI Analyzer to adjust your SLOs.

Leverage SLI Analyzer to choose your reliability targets and create meaningful SLOs. See how your SLO will behave before you create it! How is this possible?

With SLI Analyzer, you can retrieve your historical data, set reliability targets, and see how your system performs. You can easily tweak the targets and see updated error budgets and error budget burn down. Once you’ve determined the right target using your existing data, you can easily create a new SLO.

Leveraging SLI Analyzer, you can:

  • Create and instantly adjust your first SLO on the Nobl9 platform for more robust monitoring of your reliability.
  • Choose a meaningful reliability target by analyzing how your SLOs will behave before you even create them.
  • Understand the reliability of your services without waiting and adjusting them every few days or weeks.

Scope of Support​

The SLI Analyzer supports the following data sources:

  • Datadog
  • Prometheus
  • AMS Prometheus
  • Splunk
  • New Relic
  • Amazon CloudWatch
  • Graphite
  • Dynatrace
    beta
    (available only in beta channel)

To use SLI Analyzer for specific data sources, you may need to update the version of the Nobl9 Agent you use. Check the table to determine the minimum Agent version required to use this feature.

note

You can use the beta version of SLI Analyzer only for new SLOs based on the historical data that you can fetch from the supported data sources.

Once you've determined the right target using your existing data, you can create an SLO using those parameters.

SLI Analyzer and RBAC​

  • Only Organization Admins can create or delete analyses.

  • Users having Organization Viewer permissions can preview existing analyses in the SLI Analyzer tab.

  • Users having Organization User permissions cannot create, delete, or preview analyses in the SLI Analyzer tab.

Limitations​

A quota limits the number of ongoing analyses. Those limits differ for two parts of the analysis - importing the data and analyzing (calculating) the data:

  • There can only be 1 analysis at a time in Importing status in an organization.
  • There can only be 1 analysis at a time in Analyzing status in an organization.
tip

You can reset these limits:

  • For importing data: by deleting an analysis with the Importing... status in the main SLI Analyzer tab.
  • For analyzing data: by deleting an analysis with the Analyzing... status in the main SLI Analyzer tab.
Well done! Let's move from theory to practice now.
