Monday, March 27th, 2017

Monday, March 27th, 2017

MonitorWare Agent 11.1 Released

Build-IDs: Service 11.1.0.494, Client 11.1.0.1576

Features

  • Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2k.
  • Configuration Reload: This is a big new core feature allowing the
    service to reload itself automatically after a configuration changed has
    been detected. The feature can be turned off in General-General Options if
    this new behavior is not wanted. By default auto reload will be enabled.
    The latest Configuration Client is required for the feature to fully work.
  • SNMP Receiver: Added new compressed output format for message property.
  • EventLog Monitor V2: Added new options to delay LastRecord save.
    Enabling this option will improve processing performance of machines with
    a high event volume.
  • EventLog Monitor V1: Added new option to delay LastRecord save. Enabling
    this option will improve processing performance of machines with a high
    event volume.
  • File Monitor: Added new option to delay LastFilePosition save. Enabling
    this option will improve processing performance when processing large
    growing files.
  • FileConfig: Changed datafile saving method, more reliable when the
    service is stopped unintentionally while updating data state files.
  • Send SNMP action: Added new variable for SNMPv1 AgentIP field. By
    default the property will be set to %source%.
  • Send Syslog Action: Added new option to enable/disable UTF8 BOM. Default
    is enabled like before, but it can be disabled now by configuration so the
    message won’t contain the UTF8 BOM.

Bugfixes

  • Property Engine: Fixed SystemID and CustomerID properties.
  • FileConfig: Due a missing property (FilterVersion), some of the global
    conditions in rule filters could not be used. This automatically fixes
    itself next time the configuration is saved with the Client.
  • Debug Logging: Completely rewritten debug output for Rule Engine
    (Filters) for better readability and analysis.
  • Fixed an compatibility issue on Windows 2003/XP (failed to start because
    WSAPoll API is missing).
  • FileConfig: Fixed an issue with invalid linefeeds when using includefile
    directive.
  • FileConfig: Fixed EnumRegkey emulation causing EventLog Monitor Services
    to load invalid eventlog channels.
  • Debug Logging: Moved RELP Debugging from minimal to internal
  • FileMonitor: Fixed issue rewriting filepointer updates each time when
    wildcards support was enabled.
  • SNMP Trap Receiver: Fixed handling of SNMPv1 Enterprise traps. All
    properties are now properly set.
  • SNMP Trap Receiver: Fixed shutdown of Service causing a problem when
    reloading configuration.
