ServiceNow has announced the general availability of Lightstep UQL (Unified Query Language) which will help companies extend visibility across Kubernetes applications. Using shift-left observability directly in code, DevOps teams help ensure Kubernetes applications are ‘born’ fully observable and proactively enforce consistency, maintainability, and reproducibility best practices – as opposed to having SREs build dashboards on the fly.

With Lightstep UQL, teams can have an easier time migrating their observability from other scattered tools onto a unified Lightstep platform through a single query language, making it possible to query and correlate metrics, logs, and traces on demand across thousands of Kubernetes nodes, servers, or serverless functions.

ServiceNow acquired Lightstep, a next generation application monitoring and observability platform, in 2021 to extend the benefits of observability across the enterprise through digital workflows.

Earlier this month, ServiceNow announced an agreement to acquire Era Software, an observability and log management innovator, which will complement and augment existing features within Lightstep. The latest announcement is another step to accelerate ServiceNow’s path toward unified telemetry (logs, metrics, traces).
