The much-anticipated release of Grafana Tempo 2.0, which we previewed at ObservabilityCON 2022, will represent a huge step forward for the distributed tracing backend. Among the biggest highlights will be TraceQL, a first-of-its-kind query language that makes it easier than ever to find the exact trace you’re looking for. There’s supposed to be a video here, but for some reason there isn’t. Either we entered the id wrong (oops!), or Vimeo is down.

Brazil’s Banco Itaú is the largest bank in Latin America, so when performance and uptime issues impact its applications, the reverberations can be massive. “It can impact the whole economy of Brazil. It can damage other banks’ business too,” Ana Paula Genari Martin, SRE manager at Banco Itaú, said in her recent ObservabilityCON talk. And keeping those applications running is no small feat, considering the size of their digital operations.

It’s hard to think of a use case that Grafana hasn’t been used for. When Torkel Ödegaard launched the Grafana open source project with his first commit in December 2013, “my goal was to make time series data accessible for a wider audience, to make it easier to build dashboards, and to make graphs and dashboards more interactive,” he said.

Until recently, Grafana Cloud users had to rely on API keys to read and write data to and from the composable observability platform. These API keys had minimal features, which limited administrators’ ability to manage account access on a granular level. We’re keenly aware of these shortcomings, and we’ve been working to overhaul and replace these API keys with something more flexible, more reliable, and more secure.

Over the course of two decades, Adform grew from a dream between friends huddled in a basement to a leading advertising tech platform powering more than 25,000 clients worldwide. Success brought external accolades, but it also created the need for internal innovation to support the company’s continued growth. In 2018, Adform was still operating in startup mode, which meant developers and teams cherry-picked the tools that worked best for them.

The shift toward building modern applications as a collection of API-driven services has many benefits, but let’s be honest, simplified monitoring and troubleshooting is not one of them.

As part of the Grafana 9.2 release, we’re making it easier to create dynamic and interactive dashboards with a new and improved Grafana Loki query variable editor. Templating is a great option if you don’t want to deal with hard-coding certain elements in your queries, like the names of specific servers or applications. Previously, you had to remember and enter specific syntax in order to run queries on label names or values.

A big piece of news to come out of ObservabilityCON in early November was the launch of Grafana Phlare. Phlare is an open source, horizontally scalable, highly available, multi-tenant continuous profiling aggregation system. Continuous profiling has been dubbed the fourth pillar of observability, after metrics, logs, and traces. The idea behind Phlare was sparked during a company-wide hackathon at Grafana Labs.
