We are happy to announce the availability of our June rolling releases for CloudBees Core and CloudBees DevOptics. Please see the highlights below.
Our flagship solution for enterprise-ready continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) in the cloud, CloudBees Core solves the automation needs of organizations requiring scalability, security, manageability and resiliency capabilities with Jenkins.
General Availability on Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS)
CloudBees Core runs natively inside an Amazon-hosted Kubernetes service.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the #1 cloud provider. Running CloudBees Core on Amazon's EKS reduces one more barrier to using one CI/CD solution for all of your software applications. Some of the key benefits include:
Elasticsearch Reporter (formerly known as CloudBees Jenkins Analytics)
This is a new plugin that enables users to send their existing analytics data in their CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise clusters to an Elasticsearch cluster hosted by the user. The Elasticsearch Reporter plugin is compatible with Elasticsearch (and Kibana) versions 5.x.
Previously, users that wanted to retrieve operational data had to use CloudBees analytics which bundled an older version of Elasticsearch with predefined dashboards. Now, users can insert metrics into their own Elasticsearch cluster and have the flexibility to analyze and visualize the data any way they want.
General Availability on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
CloudBees Core runs natively inside an Azure-hosted Kubernetes service.
Microsoft Azure is the #2 cloud provider. Running CloudBees Core on Microsoft's AKS reduces one more barrier to using one CI/CD solution for all of your software applications. Some of the key benefits include:
Designed to help shared services teams ensure that their CI/CD platforms are optimally supporting the demands of their product teams, our CD platform monitoring capabilities in CloudBees DevOptics provide visibility of job and pipeline activity across your entire software delivery infrastructure.
Current Activity Bar
Provides at a glance status into real-time platform activity. It shows five key pieces of information:
A holistic view of CD platform infrastructure
Out-of-the-box platform usage metrics and insights across multiple teams and masters provide a single view of your software delivery infrastructure. This enables you to optimize delivery by proactively ensuring performance and uptime.
Runs Completed Per Day by Status
Graph showing the number of runs for a given time period broken down by status. You’ll see the following:
Ensure reliable delivery and quality of service
Understand the throughput of the platform in order to ensure high quality of service and reliable delivery. See trends related to completed job status across a given time period in order to support DevOps performance and best practices.
Average Time to Complete a Run
Graph showing historical analysis of the average time taken to complete runs. The graph includes color coding to differentiate active execution time from waiting time.
Visibility into platform capacity
See metrics on average run times. Spot trends of high wait times to better plan platform capacity or relieve constraints to reduce lead times.
Activity by Hour of Day
Graph showing a 24x7 view of CD platform activity at every hour of each day in the week.
View of daily activity levels
Easily see trends in high and low periods of activity throughout the week to plan maintenance or upgrade work.
Runs Per Node Label
A table providing the detailed breakdown of Run activity based on Node labels used on the platform. For each label, you can see information related to
Fine tune the CD platform
Get a view across labeled nodes to determine any development effort needed that can speed up builds. This helps you get the most value out of your CD platform investment.
