Propel your change failure rate and MTTR with CI/CD builds

As of today you can use any CI/CD build to track your change failure rate and MTTR.

Change failure and the sources that propel it differ wildly from team to team. That's why here at Sleuth we feel it's imperative to support all sources of failure your team already relies on. 

Many teams run CI/CD builds that can spot failure before it hits their customers. And others run CI/CD smoke test builds against their running Environments.

Just connect any of our supported CI/CD integrations like Jenkins, Github Actions (and more) and you'll be tracking change failure and MTTR in minutes!

GitLab CI/CD Pipelines integration

We love GitLab here at Sleuth and we can tell you that a good portion of our users to do too! Sleuth has supported GitLab for code and issues for over a year. 

Now you can integrate Sleuth with GitLab to connect your builds to your deploys as well.

If your team is using GitLab for CI/CD or test builds, just head on over the integrations page, enable GitLab and start seeing your builds in Sleuth today!

Drive your change failure rate and MTTR with Incidents via FireHydrant

Many teams define change failure as when they've caused an incident. Their MTTR is how long it takes the team to recover. 

Sleuth now integrates with incident management platforms to automatically incorporate your Incidents into your change failure rate and MTTR. Our first integration is with the fine folks over at FireHydrant.

It only takes a minute to connect and you'll see your Accelerate (DORA) metrics reflect your data straight away.

If you're using PagerDuty, Statuspage or Blameless to manage incidents, never fear, we'll have you covered over the next few weeks!

Discover change lead time bottlenecks

Sleuth is the most accurate, flexible and trustworthy way to measure your team's Accelerate (DORA) performance

Understanding your teams change lead time allows you to spot bottlenecks. However, to really get to an understanding of what's going on you need to know where in your lead time time is spent.

You can now drill in to see a graph of your teams coding, review lag, review and deploy time. Just click the breakdown in your lead time graph and see which how your time is performing and which deploys have taken longest.

Spot your teams bottlenecks with Sleuth!

Rollbacks for a more powerful MTTR and change failure rate

As of today Sleuth knows when your team performs a code rollback! Just register a deploy with a revision that was previously deployed and Sleuth will jump into action!

When a code rollback is detected Sleuth creates a Rollback deploy that links to the deploys that were rolled back. Sleuth tags the rolled back deploys so you can easily search for them and changes their status to "Rolled back".

Sleuth is already the most accurate and flexible way to track your team's Accelerate metrics. With the addition of rollbacks your MTTR and change failure calculations have become even more powerful. Rollbacks count toward your teams MTTR and change failure rate.

CI/CD integrations to build your perfect deployment workflow

Sleuth is your single pane of glass for deploys. CI/CD builds are your DevOps workhorse, used for testing and deploying your changes, and are now automatically visible for every deploy. We've added integrations for our most requested providers in Jenkins, Github Actions, CircleCi and Bitbucket pipelines. More CI/CD integrations are on the way, just reach out if you don't see your provider on our list.

Once enabled, the integration will automatically associate any builds that include a code deploy's git commit hash. Sleuth surfaces the build, its status and quick links to your providers build display.

The integration also allows Sleuth to trigger your existing builds via our Sleuth Actions. Use Sleuth to setup your perfect deployment workflow. Your team can use Sleuth's deployment verification to trigger promotion between environments or auto-trigger rollbacks. With build triggers you can setup Slack based approvals to drive your change failure rate to zero.

Drill in to discover the why behind your trends

Hot on the heals of Sleuth search we had added many quick and contextual ways to find the exact deploy you are looking for from the Sleuth UI. Click and drag on any Sleuth trend graphs to see the deploys behind the trend.

We've also linked many of the elements you see in the Sleuth UI such as; deploy tags, authors and size such that they will take you to the Sleuth search with pre-filled filters for the attribute you clicked and its associated context.

Insights and trends are now just a click away!

Impact tracking - 200% more accurate, drive MTTD to zero

Sleuth connects to your error trackers and cloud-based metrics trackers to auto-verify the health of your deploys so your team can drive MTTD (mean time to detection) to zero!

Today, with the grounds up rewrite of our anomaly detection algorithm, our Impact tracking is now 200% more accurate. 

Our new Impact graphs allow you to quickly see how deploys affect your metrics and see how Sleuth has determined their health.

We've also added the ability to manually specify your healthy threshold for those teams with amazing house-keeping, where your impact measures never really reach anomalous levels . So if you want to measure your database CPU, but really only care if it goes over 50%, you can tell Sleuth and we'll only alert you once it's breached that threshold.

These changes, coupled with our recent support for AWS CloudWatch,  NewRelic and Custom impact sources, means there's nothing stoping your team from driving your MTTD to zero with Sleuth today!

Track your Accelerate metrics with ease

One of the most popular topic's to come from the Accelerate DevOps book is the “four measures of software delivery performance”, sometimes called “Accelerate metrics” or the DORA metrics.

The metrics; deployment frequency, change lead time, change failure rate and mean time to recovery (MTTR) are indicators of a DevOps teams health and its ability to quickly and safely deploy changes.

But how can your team track these metics? Your Sleuth project dashboard does all the heavy lifting for you. 

Because Sleuth knows when you deploy and verifies your deploy health we can automatically generate a high-fidelity view into your Accelerate metrics. Once you know your baseline let Sleuth provide the tools you need to improve!
