- Revised Service Owner Metering & Usage
- Automatic meshProject replication retry
- Improved Azure Project Access response
Metering Resource Timeline Compaction
The meshStack metering subsytem now automatically compacts resource timeline sample resolution after a default offset of 30 days. Compaction increases processing performance of the system and decreases storage requirements.
How to use
Operators can configure the offset per platform instance. When configuring this offset operators must consider expected delays in metering data collection e.g. due to cloud platform failure and similar conditions. It is not safe to insert data samples into compacted regions of a resource timeline, so operators should chose the value to provide a good balance of performance and safety.
Prefill CF marketplace parameters on instance update
Current parameters are retrieved from the Service Broker to show them in the service instance update form.
Audience: User, Partner, Operator, Customer
Component: kraken-api, panel
Project Statements have been renamed to Chargeback Statements. This better describes their purpose as the final stage of the multi-cloud metering process.
How to use
Please review our documentation portal for additional details.
Revised Service Owner Metering & Usage
The Metering & Usage area for service owners now provides a revised list, that shows which project is using which plan and how much usage was metered for that. It does not provide a detailed level per service instance, but just a summary per usage type of a service plan.
Automatic meshProject replication retry
Failed or Pending replications will be automatically retried without user interaction. This means the user experience while waiting for a successful project replication is improved as the replication finishes in the background.
Improved Azure Project Access response
If there are problems during Azure Project access the backend now returns a more detailed error message for the user.
