Connecting Pinecone to Monte Carlo allows for monitoring the most critical component of your AI pipelines. We've brought Monte Carlo's data anomaly detection to Pinecone by observing patterns in Vector Count by Index and Index Namespace.

As soon as you connect Pinecone, hourly tracking of Vector Count by each Index and Index Namespace will be cataloged to be view and actively monitored by Monte Carlo's machine learning - no other setup necessary. You can see the expected Thresholds of Vector Count highlighted on the chart as well.

Learn how to setup Pinecone with Monte Carlo in the documentation. More monitors and metadata about your Pinecone assets are coming soon.

Monte Carlo can now integrate with multiple Slack environments. Historically, you could only connect with a single Slack workspace, which was a challenge for large organizations had different slack workspaces per business unit. Now, you can connect multiple workspaces, allowing you to send the right notifications to the right people.

Once multiple Slack integrations are configured, the user can select which integration to use when adding recipients to an audience.

Monte Carlo now supports the new agent architecture on AWS with both CloudFormation and Terraform!

Key Benefits of the new architecture include:

  • Simplicity: the agent has far fewer resources and components than before.
  • Transparency: the code and templates are all publicly available for easy review with an audit and change log.
  • Faster & Fewer updates: get improvements to Monte Carlo more quickly, but also with fewer manual upgrades.
  • Flexibility: support the customizations you needed.
  • More reliability: reachability heartbeats + faster deployments.

Coming soon in November: we are announcing Monte Carlo's foray into data observability for SAP Hana, starting with the ability to run SQL Rules and detect Volume anomalies. SQL Rules can be created in either the UI and/or programmatically via Monitors-as-Code (API/SDK too). These monitors can be used to generate notifications to relevant stakeholders, circuit break pipelines, and conduct RCA (e.g. sampling). Asset entries are also created in Monte Carlo and Custom Lineage APIs are available to write lineage across databases to data warehouses.

Previously, this was only supported for different kinds of custom rules, but is now available for any custom monitor type. If the severity is set on a custom monitor, then all incidents generated by that monitor will inherit that severity.

Users can now send Monte Carlo notifications directly to Jira to create Jira Issues. Previously, a user could only create a Jira Issue by clicking a button from IncidentIQ. However, for Incidents from certain critical tables or critical monitors, some customers wanted to send those Incidents straight to Jira without having a human-in-the-loop. With this recent improvement, it’s now easy for them to do that.

Note: this improvement is only available in Notifications 2.0. Learn more in our docs.
