Adiscon is proud to announce the 9.0 release of MonitorWare Agent.
This new major release adds full support for Windows 8 and Windows 2012.
It can now also monitor dynamic *.evt files generated by NetApp devices. This permits to process all types of NetApp Event Log Records, no matter how the NetApp device is configured. Also, the "overrun protection delay" preciseness has been enhanced, providing even finer-grain control over how fast syslog messages are emitted. This can be very important for UDP-only based receivers, which need to receive data at a high rate, but slow enough so that no packet loss occurs.
To better support using both the old-style and new-style Windows Events Logs, an Event ID conversion capability has been added (for security events). This permits to use unified event IDs for both styles of the Windows Event Log. Most importantly, this also permits existing (customer) scripts to continue to run with the new style Event Log system.
For OEMs, the integration capabilities have been enhanced. So it now is possible to use customized service names and registry keys. This permits seamless integration into turnkey solutions. Also, for ultra-secure envrionments, this permits increased security hardening as an attacker needs to guess the actual service name if it was custom-set.
Increased SSL security by updated the Core Engine to the latest OpenSSL library 1.0.1e.
Detailed information can be found in the version history.
