Circonus has introduced a brand new Check Type: the CAQL Check!
The Circonus Analytics Query Language (CAQL) allows users to unlock custom queries that wouldn’t otherwise be practical to create through the GUI pre-set options. CAQL was first introduced to create analytics transforms on graphs, then we used it to add customizable analytics alerting, and now CAQL Checks are in public Beta.
You’ll find the new CAQL Check under the “Custom” heading when you create a new check. This allows you to monitor metrics based on CAQL queries, so you can create new metrics from combining or performing analytics on other metrics.
