Display the actual state of a resource in an "Unavailable" state

In legacy PMC, today, we would mark a resource in an "Unavailable" state because the actual state of this resource is not explicitly mapped. This is an issue for the user because it is unclear what error state this resource is in and so there is n...

Under Infrastructure the IBM ACE Message Flow view shows the Flow Nodes associated with the Messageflow and has a single Maximum Elapsed Time for each node; we would also like an Average Elapsed Time for each Flow node as well.

As stated above, displaying the Average Elapsed Time for each message flow node for the selected timeframe would provide a great deal of value when using Instana to track Message Flow performance. As a 2nd ask, and of lesser priority, would it als...
