MonitorWare Agent 7.1 Released
Adiscon is proud to announce the 7.1 release of MonitorWare Agent.
This release includes important new features and minor bug fixes. New features are:
- Old-Style Format Emulation for Event Parameters – the old Windows Event Log
system contained numbered parameters (name "ParamX" in our implementation). The new
style implementation (e.g Windows 7, Windows Server 2008) does not support them in the same way.
The Event Log Monitor V2 is still able to provide parameters in the "old style" format,
what means that log analysis scripts can receive a consistent stream of data for both
new style and old style Windows events.
- Improved Support for NetApp Filer and similar devices –
which enables to integrate their event logs into a central repository.
For this, EventReporter is executed on a Windows system and pulls NetApp Events via
the NetApp event log API. Note that there are various modes for doing this, and
all of them have some specifics in addition to the "usual" requirements found in
the Microsoft API specification. EventReporter knows these specifics and has special
code to work with them.
- Support for old-style Windows Event Log Backup Files –
Current Windows releases (like Windows 2008 Server) cannot read event log backup files
from older Windows systems utilizing the old-style event API.
This holds also true for event log files created by third-party applications in that
format (and there are such third-party applications). EventReporter is capable to read
and process these files on any Windows platform, including the most recent ones.
