Released: June 2021
Capacity Planner release notes contain the list of all new or enhanced features and a list of all issues fixed in the current release.
These are the highlights of this release:
AWS Reserved Instances (RI) Optimisation
Capacity Planner can now analyse instance use over the baseline period and suggest the optimum RI purchase for a 3 year up-front commitment. It analyses existing RI purchases to determine how far from the optimum maximum savings potential they are.
Reports have been updated to allow you to pre-filter a report using a baseline view. For example, if you have a view focussed on a particular application and subset of workloads., you can select that view when configuring the report which will limit the report coverage to only those entities visible in the view.
A new report that analyses cloud instance utilisation and determines those times where individual machines can be determined to be reliably inactive or idle, and the costs of running those machines during those idle times.
These are the new features and enhancements of this release:
|Issue key||Release description|
|ICP-1381||Capacity Planner now quantifies idle time of machines and identifies those machines that could be more actively managed to operate only when they are required, instead of having long periods of inactivity.|
|ICP-2279||Recommendations now include the optimisation of Reserved Instances.|
Two new entries are available for the skyline in the timeburst view: Sum and Mean. When these are selected, either the sum or mean of all values currently visible in the heatmap are shown on the skyline. For example, selecting Mean when in the CPU configuration view plots the skyline chart of mean CPU % value across all visible instances on the heatmap.
|ICP-2553||A new AWS EC2 Instance Periodicity report is now available. This report analyses a subset of instances as defined by the user, and using configurable CPU thresholds, identifies those machines that present reliably predictable periodic idle times. For example, machines that are always inactive out of working hours or over the weekend.|
All new cloud projects are now pre-configured with a standard set of views based on readily available tags and standard dynamic groupings.
Azure environments have the following views:
|ICP-2746||It is now possible to open a headroom metric summary directly from the recommendations detail metric box plot chart.|
