💯 What’s New?

New Console

The old console was great but it wasn’t the most intuitive and was lacking in overall ease of navigation. We went back to the drawing board and crafted a new console that is easier to navigate and more consistent across sections.

New Baselime console

CloudTrail Connector

Baselime now automatically ingests telemetry data from AWS CloudTrail. AWS CloudTrail monitors and records account activity across your AWS infrastructure; but is notoriously cumbersome to query. When your CloudTrail data lands in Baselime, it’s treated like any other telemetry data and you can run arbitrary complex queries on it, set up alerts and dashboards, and investigate it with Observability as Code (OaC).

Changes to CloudFormation stacks

Baselime applications are now directly connected to a set of CloudFormation stacks. For example, this means that when you define an alert in an application, it applies to all the infrastructure in the given CloudFormation stacks. And when you deploy new infrastructure to your AWS account, your o11y is automatically updated to reflect the change.

Streams

Streams are a way to filter your telemetry data and focus only on a subset of events. If you want to see logs that are impacting a specific user only, you can define a stream that filters for this. Streams work just like queries, but without the calculations (COUNT, P99, AVG, etc.)

Baselime streams

Baselime GitHub Action

Easily download the Baselime CLI in your GitHub action workflows and integrate o11y in your CI/CD pipelines.

Visual Studio Code extension

With the Baselime VS-Code extension, never again will you need to guess structure or schema of your telemetry data when you’re working with it. Discoverability is taken care of with powerful snippets and auto-complete capabilities powered by your telemetry data.

🎯 What’s Next?

  • API Gateway & CloudFormation Connectors: We discovered that a lot of engineering teams are having difficulties with their API Gateway Logs. We’re solving this problem this coming month.
  • Deeper CI/CD integration
  • Automatic Discovery of your CloudFormation Stacks: Simply put, we’ll make it easier to automatically have your CloudFormation stacks as applications in Baselime.
