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.
Instana should warn when a cluster or node is unscheduleable due to pod limits
In the OCP Console, there is a warning when a nodes node's available resources are exceeded by the limits of the running workloads, making the node unschedulable. Right now it is possible to show on a custom dashboard that the limits/available is ...
Add the ability to identify the requesting IP-Address when using Java-Tracing ( Tomcat/WebLogic etc.)
As described in the title, it would be extremly helpful for our customer if he could correlate traces captured by Instana with the IP-Address of the requesting client. The functionality would be most useful if it was implemented just like with the...
