Screenshots, charts, better AI and 3 new locations

This month, we have a couple of new features to show you. It's not much, as we're working hard on the most significant update of Spectate yet.

We have been hard at work on migrating Spectate to ClickhouseDB. As a result, queries are incredibly fast, and all reports are now real-time, including uptime percentages. We don't cache (yet), as the performance has been rock solid for the last few weeks.

This month's primary focus was preparing for our next update and ensuring Spectate is even faster and more stable. And it worked. Error logging has been quieter than ever before.

The two most significant features we have released are Incident screenshots and charts in notifications.

Notifications have been updated to include charts indicating what is going on with performance in the previous period.

Screenshot of average response time increased.
