New features and enhancements

These are the new features and enhancements of this release:

Issue key Release description
ICP-1772 The recommendations panel now includes details of changes that could have been applied to machines that are no longer running, and the savings that could have been made if those instances had been run more efficiently.
ICP-1837 If a saved report makes reference to a grouping value filter that does not exist in the data set, the report will not run. As a workaround, change the filter to ensure that only grouping values present in the data set are used.
ICP-1868 An Azure specific Exec report is now available to present insight and trends into compute costs.
ICP-2030 The timeburst has been improved to load and operate faster on very large scale environments.
ICP-2031 You can now identify instances that should not be included in recommendations for right-sizing. For example, machines that are already fully optimised and should not be changed.
ICP-2200 You can now auto-generate an optimised savings plan value for a collection of instances by right- clicking any grouping in a sunburst and selecting an appropriate option.
ICP-2320 You can now set the value for memory and CPU utilisation while interactively right-sizing and right-buying. The current chosen statistical measure can be overridden and, if there is no data available for a metric, a default value can be chosen.
ICP-2328 The timeburst configuration options now allow you to highlight areas of the heatmap that meet a particular chosen threshold. You can configure your own threshold and apply it to the timeburst. You can also view a summation of the times when instances meet the threshold criteria on the skyline and the right hand side timeseries.
