  • Php Sensor: improved CPU usage.
  • Php Tracer: new and improved MongoDb instrumentation.
  • Php Tracer: capture errors on IBM DB2 queries.
  • Redis Sensor: added memory fragmentation ratio.
  • Service Mapping: improved service naming based on JDBC connection string by using the database schema name as the service name. This enhancement provides better support and more consistency across different database technologies.
  • When Amazon EC2 Name tags are used to name a group of hosts, the unique host naming fallbacks to FQDN, and then to the hostname. This is visible on the infrastructure map. For more information about how to collect EC2 tags, see the EC2 tags section.
  • Agent: sensitive information is redacted from the Docker Container Info. Sensitive information is configured in configuration.yaml under the com.instana.secrets.
