Intro to Context Guide | End-to-end Context of Application and Infrastructure Dependencies
When you're troubleshooting application issues you need immediate access to all dependent components including their health and KPIs.
Context Guide automatically adjusts itself to whatever entity is currently in focus. When you open the Context Guide it shows ONLY the correlated entities of the stack or the upstream/downstream services. This data, combined with KPIs and health status allow the operator to immediately orient themselves within the application architecture, understand what is impacted or causing impact, and drill down to any related entity for further examination.
Instana’s Context Guide is available today. If you already have Instana you will see the “Stack” and “Upstream/Downstream” buttons appear in your UI automatically. If you are not a current Instana customer you can see the Context Guide working in your environment today by starting a free trial.
