schedule alerts or events on certain days and times. For example: an event is executed only on Sunday from 7 am to 7 pm

At ALSAC we make extensive use of NetBrain to monitor our Network. It would be great if we could bring that data into Instana to add additional context to incidents.

Including data from the network domain would enable us to see relevant context if we have issues in our infrastructure. If we could achieve this we feel that we could resolve some of our incidents more quickly

Need an efficient feature, or path (e.g. API endpoint) to export Raw Flow data from SevOne for consumption over Kafka. SDB does this, but only for metrics. Attempts to use SevOne-act (as a way to work around the SDB limitation) result in long export times, would not scale, and would not be supported by IBM.

For SevOne customers using a Data Lake architecture, who want to store/process Raw Flow data, for downstream security or other analysis/anomaly detection would find this highly valuable.

We are requesting that the DWC time field support the more conventional 12:00 - 12:59 AM/PM and/or 24 hour clock value.
