New alert log and improved replay function

October 8th, 2009 by Tony

Chartbeat analytics now shows you an alert log of all the unusual events that triggered an alert, be it a traffic alert, uptime or slow page load time.

Chartbeat Alert Log

You can navigate back by week to understand how the events are grouped over time and what's more we've beefed up the replay function. Always a rather hidden function of chartbeat, each alert now comes with a replay button that enables you to replay the period in time surrounding the alert and better understand what caused it. Was a traffic spike caused by a specific referrer or search term? Which page were visitors hitting when your page load slowed? What was the activity on your site immediately prior to it crashing. The replay can give you insight into all of these so that you can better understand, respond and prepare for a repeat of an unusual event. Please let us know what you think!
