2015-02-09 MonitorWare Agent 10.0 released

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Adiscon is proud to announce the 10.0 release of MonitorWare Agent.

This new major release adds full support for Windows 2012 R2 and also has been verified to work on Windows 10 preview versions.

The new major version is a milestone in many ways. Most important the performance of the core engine has been considerably increased. All existing configurations will benefit from this. Also a new Configuration Client has been added which has been rewritten using the .Net Framework (Like the InterActive Syslog Viewer). With the new Configuration Client, we also introduce support for a new file based configuration format (as an alternative to the registry-based method). MonitorWare Agent can now run from a configuration file and save it state values
into files.

We also extended the classic EventLog Monitor to support multiple dynamic *.evt files for NetApp customers.
