App usability improvements

  • Add "breakdown" bars in the samples table for performance samples. These help you quickly figure out if it's a single event group (queries, templates, external requests) that's causing the performance issues.
  • Show performance of action in the last five deploys
  • Revamp the performance incidents. Bring them in line with the exception incidents. Add tabs for Logbook, Sample table, Graphs and incident Summary
  • Improve N+1 detection, we'll now show multiple non-nested events repeated as a group (e.g. active record initialise and query repeated 10 times, now shows them as a group).

Various usability enhancements

  • Make Duration formatter more accurate, instead of showing ~2 min, or ~2 hours, we now show 02:31 min, and 04:32 h.
  • The marker selection dropdown on the incident page is now persisted in the session. You don't have to select "last 30 days" on every reload anymore.
  • The exception incidents samples table now has a column select and horizontal scroll. This should help customers with lots of custom tags.
  • The exception incident message/backtraces are now updated from samples, ensuring they are consistent with the latest error message/backtrace (at most once a day).
  • Incident notifications now include a timestamp to the sample that generated the incident again, this helps debug issues with those specific attributes.
