We’re so excited to share our latest features and improvements to the Embrace dashboard!

In this update, we’ll give a walkthrough of our App Health metric and point out how you can monitor it out the box as well as configure it within your own dashboards.

Here’s what we’ll cover in this post:

  • What the App Health metric is
  • Where to monitor App Health out of the box
  • How to configure dashboards with App Health

What the App Health Metric Is

The App Health metric is the ratio of sessions with error logs and crashes to the total number of sessions. It’s a great way to monitor the overall stability of your application. You can track this metric across features and releases for quick visibility into regressions or improvements.

Where to Monitor App Health Out of the Box

The App Health metric is available in multiple places in the Embrace dashboard. The first one we’ll cover is the Version Comparison template dashboard, which you can access from the Dashboards page.

The Version Comparison template highlights several helpful performance and stability metrics across your latest releases. The following image highlights the default configuration.

For more information, you can check out our Dashboards feature release to learn how to duplicate and create your own dashboards directly from these templates.

The App Health metric is also available on the Health and Trends template dashboard. This template contains real-time visualizations of metrics, which are perfect for displaying on a TV. You can also configure the time window to increase granularity whenever you’re overseeing a live event or a new release.

How to Configure Dashboards With App Health

You can also create your own widget dashboard for the App Health metric. That way, you can set the time window, the app versions, and add any grouping or filtering to hone in on the datasets you care about. The below image shows an example where we’re filtering down to the one OS version we’re interested in.

You can also create a comparison dashboard and include App Health alongside other helpful graphs. In the following example, we’re comparing App Health across the recent versions of our application, and we’re adding a graph of session counts to provide context about their relative usage.

Our App Health is improving release-over-release, and users have overwhelmingly updated to the latest version. That’s a win-win in our book!

And that’s it! Now, your team can easily monitor App Health using our template dashboards as well configuring your own dashboards for your specific use case.

As always, please share any feedback so we can continue to build features and improvements that help your team be successful.
