Geneos 5.x Known Issues

Overview

Geneos known issues contain a list of bugs and issues that may affect the performance of your applications and components in Geneos.

ITRS works on isolating and fixing every product issue that we are aware of. We categorise a bug or an issue as a known issue if it meets the following criteria:

  • The issue is reported by multiple users or is likely to have a high impact.

  • The users should be aware of to minimise any disruptions to their monitoring.

  • It is a critical issue, or with a high severity security vulnerability risk.

The Reported version is also provided for each known issue which indicates the Geneos version where the issue was found. However, these issues may be valid across multiple versions.

This list is always updated regularly, and issues that are resolved will be added in the Geneos release notes.

Issue key Affected component Reported version Known issue description
VI-9368 Active Console Geneos 5.10.x

List Views in the Active Console may cause performance issues where they contains non-identifying predicates in the X-path. Active Console may drop Gateway connections when a large number of Gateways are connected.

Upcoming releases will help you identify and fix these X-paths to improve performance. As a workaround, we recommend a manual fix for any of your existing workspaces. Please refer to the Refactor List Views containing XPaths with Non-identifying Predicates article.
