오늘 우리는 Linode Cloud Manager에 대한 몇 가지 주요 개선 사항을 발표했습니다. 우리는 플랫폼에서 고객 경험을 개선하는 방법에 대한 피드백을 지속적으로 수집하며, 이러한 업데이트는 지난 몇 달 동안 수집한 피드백의 결과입니다. 이 릴리스에서 중점을 두는 사안은 다음과 같습니다.
- 업데이트된 탐색 및 보다 직관적으로 압축된 메뉴 항목
- Linode에 대한 자세한 정보(계획 유형, 생성 날짜 및 태그)
- 확장된 네트워크 사용 메트릭 및 개별 Linode 정보
- 알림창에 포함된 오픈 티켓 및 시스템 상태
이러한 노력의 일환으로 지난 몇 개월 동안 Cloud Manager에 여러 성능 개선 사항을 제공했습니다. (자세한 내용은 릴리스 내역에서 확인할 수 있습니다).
인터페이스는 이전 이터레이션과 일관성을 유지하지만 Cloud Manager 내에서 원활하게 탐색하는 데 도움이 되도록 강조하고 싶은 몇 가지 영역이 있습니다.
이전에는 Linode 계정에 로그인 시 대시보드 페이지로 이동했습니다. 이는 시각적 상태 표시기를 포함하며 표준 데스크톱 브라우저에서 표시되는 컨트롤 수를 증가시킨 Linodes 요약과 결합되었습니다.
기존 사용자를 위한 경험
신규 사용자를 위한 경험
사용자 설정 조정 및 결제 액세스
“계정”과 “내 프로필”로 분리된 설정은 오른쪽 상단 탐색의 “내 프로필” 아이콘에 통합되었습니다.
다음을 찾을 수 있는 곳.
- 라이트 vs 다크 모드? 내 프로필의 설정
- 컴팩트 모드 전체 인터페이스가 더욱 컴팩트합니다. 이 설정은 제거되었습니다.
- 월간 네트워크 전송? 개별 Linode를 클릭하고 네트워킹 탭으로 이동합니다.
기본 탐색의 계정 링크를 통해 결제에 빠르게 액세스할 수 있습니다.
업데이트된 개별 Linode 보기
이제 실행 중인 항목, Linode ID 번호 및 해당 Linode가 생성 된 시기를 포함한 개별 Linode에 대한 추가 정보가 지원됩니다. 이제 SSH 액세스가 네트워크 탭에 표시되며 사용자가 보다 직관적으로 제어할 수 있도록 제어가 통합 및 구성되었습니다.
개선된 알림 창
인프라 및 계정에 대한 중요한 정보를 쉽게 찾을 수 있도록 시스템 상태, 보류 중인 작업, 진행 중인 지원 티켓 목록 및 청구서 정보가 알림 창에 포함됩니다.
우리는 항상 클라우드 관리자의 전반적인 고객 경험, 유용성 및 성능을 개선하기 위해 노력하고 있습니다. 이러한 업데이트에 대한 피드백을 등록하려면 https://www.linode.com/feedback/ 방문하십시오.
You removed the information about total network transfer usage across all Linodes in the account, though. 🙁
Thanks for bringing this up. Your Network Transfer Usage can now be found under your Linode’s “Networking” tab.
I appreciate that it can be found in the “Networking” tab, with a more detailed breakdown of the usage, but having the overall listed on the front page was very helpful and it would be nice to have it back.
The status of the overall monthly traffic pool is more useful than each usage.
Individual Linode overages don’t matter
I’m in agreement with Mike.
So many times, companies change things that really don’t need to be changed, and end up making it worse in the process. Then when people complain, you get the typical “we’re listening to feedback” kind of response, which just encourages them to make more pointless changes.
And the cycle continues.
We love getting feedback, and it has a direct influence on future updates, new features, and changes. It helps us get a sense of how much interest there is in a change and how we can improve. I’ve added your request for an overall Network Transfer meter on the main Linodes page to our internal tracker for review. If you have any suggestions or ideas, or if you just want to let us know what you think, you can always email the team here directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
change not always good
It has the agility of the previous version… :D.
At the beginning of the year it was terrible slow, and although I improve enough with new updates I never surpass to the deprecated version… it was something that was missed a lot. Congratulations for the change!
Thanks for the kind words, David! The only thing constant is change. And we’ll continue to strive to change for the better. ?
Looks great! Thank you.
Can the homepage be set to display total traffic?
I agree with the other comments regarding total network transfer. It’s the actual statistic most of us care about, rather than individual nodes. I can’t imagine why someone actually thought it was a good idea to remove it, but it’d be nice to get it back!
We appreciate all of the feedback regarding visibility of total network transfer usage on the front page of the Cloud Manager. We hear where you’re coming from, and we’ve passed this feedback along internally so that we can look at moving the location of this information from individual Linode Network tabs to the front page.
Thats great. Last time I had sent some suggestions too to the creative team. I wish the fonts could change to roboto or Gotham.
Very negatively impressed. IMHO, this is change for change’s sake and offers no advantages for me and several disadvantages. Please stop “fixing” things that aren’t broken and making things worse (the Cloud Manager change several years back was also worse than the earlier version).
I’m sorry to hear how these changes have negatively affected your experience using our platform, though we certainly appreciate you taking the time to let us know. If you have any specifics that you can share regarding the changes, we’d love to hear them. Much of the changes came directly from customer feedback. Should you want to provide more details than a blog comment would allow, you can send us an email at email@example.com.
Looks great! I love this style.
Well, i would still like to see some info about the size of the linodes in list view, it is very useful a lot of time. Especially since list view contains columns that i don’t really care about ( last backup, or even the running text in status column ).
Summary view has it, but that contains to many info ( ex. i access LISH console like once per year – with close to 100 linodes – i don’t really need that info on list/summary view. Same with SSH access, why would I copy/paste that from the view ?
Hey Sandor – having the Linode size listed is a great call out. While I can’t make any promises, I’ve passed along the suggestion internally for consideration.
Update: Looks like we’ll be bringing this feature back! I don’t have a specific date to give you, but the functionality will return soon.
Looks good in coming year!
These changes may be good visually but certainly not functionally. I agree with Jonathan’s comments above, though I used a different “f” word in a support case I raised on first encountering the changes! I was pointed here, so I’ll raise my gripes publicly:
1) Ostensibly the ability to sort the disks on the Storage screen is good. EXCEPT that the old sort order (which was by disk creation time / order) is no longer possible. So you’ve gone from it being the only sort order available (iirc) to not being available at all!
So, for example, if you locally clone a disk called DISK it will create a new disk called “Copy of DISK”. Doing the same thing again will create another disk also called “Copy of DISK”. So it’s now impossible to tell which one is which because you no longer sort on creation order.
The solution to this is to include a sortable date-created or creation-index column
2) You no longer indicate on the Storage page how much storage is used / available. So are we supposed to add the column up for ourselves now and do mental arithmetic?!
3) After initiating a Disk clone from the Disk screen, the user is deposited back on a different screen – the Configuration screen. That’s not helpful.
4) You’ve moved the Configuration screen to a new page. There’s a tight coupling between Disks and Configurations, though, requiring constant reference between them which this makes harder. Eg before doing a Disk Deletion, it’s often desirable to verify the current primary disk before doing a disk deletion! This now requires the user to change screen, review the config, return to the previous screen.
If you want to have the Configuration as a separate screen, put a status marker against listed Disks to indicate whether the disk is referenced from a Configuration profile, and if so whether the profile is active (running) or not. Even better, make this marker a sortable column
5) When doing a Disk clone the sort order of the Linodes displayed is seemingly random within the datacenter, making it hard to find targets.
A very common target will be to clone the disk to its own machine, requiring unnecessary (and possible error-prone) searching for what in a previous UI iteration used to be a simple checkbox selection (iirc). There should be an easy way to just say “Clone to myself” – for example just display the current machine as the first entry in the dropdown list; that should be trivially easy and obvious for anyone who puts actual thought into how the UI is used.
AndrewM – you make some really good points. Without getting into things one-by-one, I can tell you that I’ve brought up several items here for internal review.
In the meantime, we’ve heard feedback about the ability to sort disks by creation date from other customers, and we’re aiming to release that feature this week. We’ll follow-up with you when it’s released.
Hi AndrewM. Wanted to follow up on this to let you know that sorting by disk creation date is once again available via a Linode’s Storage tab. Thanks for mentioning it along with your other feedback!
It’s going to take a lot of fixing to get it anywhere as good and convenient and clear as the old one. Just call it a failed experiment and bring the old one back, please.
We heard you! We’ve moved the transfer pool information back to the Cloud Manager’s front page. You can now see this information as soon as you log in, as well as under each Linode’s Network tab.
The account events page is still accessible at the same URL, but because the “View All Events” link that used to be available when clicking the bell icon, it is no longer possible to navigate to it as described @ https://www.linode.com/docs/guides/what-are-the-cloud-manager-events-and-activity-feeds/
This change makes it necessary to either bookmark the events page or remember the url and enter it by hand every time I want to visit it.
The changes are quite impressive and make us easy and confortable across linode enviroment..
