What’s New At Releem - September 2023

Crafted with simplicity and efficiency in mind – Releem is built to enhance your database performance, regardless of its location – be it on a server or in the cloud. We started working on RDS support back at the beginning of 2023. Thanks to the invaluable feedback from our early adopters, we've refined our offering, ironed out bugs, developed comprehensive documentation, and set up simple and safe installation via Cloudformation.

Releem for AWS RDS has been publicly available since May 2023. We're thrilled to see it boosting database speeds and offering users a simple interface to monitor vital metrics.

If you're on AWS RDS – it's time to experience the Releem difference!

Updates to Releem Portal

We’ve introduced some exciting changes in the way of graph fixes and other usability improvements:
  • Improved Releem Score block – We are no longer using the Releem Agent version field because Releem Agent updates automatically. Instead we add the version of the server operating system. For AWS RDS instances, you'll receive a handy notification on your Dashboard when an update is due.
  • Graph Fixes & Enhancements:
    • Resolved an issue with graphs for the America/Mexico_City timezone.
    • Fixed the loading issue for monthly and weekly Latency graphs when switching servers.
    • Addressed the flat line display on the CPU Usage graph for Monthly and Weekly views.
  • Memory Limit Clarification – We've added a detailed description for the Memory Limit field. This is especially useful for web servers where MySQL memory needs to be restricted.
  • Server Recommendations: Our server list now highlights servers with unapplied recommendations, making it easier for you to optimize performance. A big shoutout to Ryan for this fantastic suggestion!

Updates to Releem Platform

During September, we also rolled out two helpful fixes to the Releem Platform:

  • Metric Aggregation – We initially used AWS Lambda for periodic tasks related to metric aggregation. However, we encountered a limitation with AWS Lambda's maximum runtime, causing the Slow logs metric to not aggregate for several days. This led to Releem displaying '0 slow logs' on the graphs. Good news! We've transitioned these tasks away from Lambda so we can ensure that graph values are always accurate for you.

Updates to Releem Agent

We don’t have any big changes to report for Releem Agent, but we’ve continued to improve our documentation and address incoming bug reports.
