Need documentation on how to uninstall Instana for K8 and Docker self hosted installation
We need documentation on how to uninstall Instana and the resources created during the installation of Instana on K8. These steps are helpful especially recovering from failed installation so that the customer could retry the steps.
Reduce Instana infrastructure footprint by reducing metrics resolution
First, we installed on self-hosted Instana Backend on Docker (on-premies). However, the backend didn't respond to the production load and lost monitoring data. Then, We decided to go forward with Openshift Installation. However, the recommended Op...
Have Turbonomic ignore DRS constraints if DRS is turned off on the cluster
I have some move policies that are failing to produce actions due to a restriction on "Segmentation Commodity" type constraint, built off of DRS rules imported from vCenter. However, even after I turned DRS off, it is still restricting the VMs eve...
POD Placement: Error Details insufficient for "Failed to start action... due to error"
Failed POD moves do not say why the Failed to start action ended in an error and what that error is. A long number is shown with in not informative. Can you link the number to a meaning and present that in the error output?

When a currency is changed from USD, costs may not be properly displayed in charts other than Top Accounts. For instance, the cost IS displayed properly for Yen, but NOT displayed properly for the Norwegian Krone
When someone execute some action on Turbonomic and this action fails (for any reason), the field that shows which user executed are not populated, even if we download the csv files.
This lead to a security and behaviour track issues.
Trigger alerts depending on several events linked with an AND
We currently use offline events in a static JBoss environment to trigger an incident at the control centre. Unfortunately, agent updates, for example, lead to the agents being switched offline in extreme cases. It would be very helpful if offline ...
I set up an event to detect JVM Offline incidents and set it as a critical condition, when this is detected an alert is raised and sent to our Teams channel for my team to react to. Following a critical alert we get a grace period alert which is n...
Instana Mode set as IQM not be defaulted back to APM on machine reboot
