You’ve received an alert that the CPU usage rate is suddenly high and the warehouse service. Normally, you’d look at the corresponding metric dashboard and charts to see what’s going on. Then you’d have to connect the dots yourself to figure out why - charts are great at showing you the symptoms, but they can’t find the cause.

That’s where Change Intelligence comes in!

Change Intelligence correlates deviations in your metric data with changes from your span data from the same time period, surfacing changes that may be the causes of the issue you’re seeing. You can go from an alert to a hypothesis in just a few clicks, without leaving Lightstep Observability! Change Intelligence

You can also use Change Intelligence to investigation performance issues found in span data.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use alerts to understand deviations in your metric data and start your investigation.
  • Use Change Intelligence to find what changes in your system caused a deviation.
