Geneos

Initiative Description
IBM i series enhancements Ability to connect to and consume data from the IBM i servers.
Azure monitoring solution A solution for Azure monitor including data collection and some out-of-the-box visualisations for the common Azure services.
Centralised configuration improvements Simpler onboarding process for centralised configuration so that Gateways can be migrated easily. This also includes a simple roll-back functionality for migration as well as configuration.
AWS monitoring solution AWS CloudWatch solution including data collection and some out-of-the-box visualisations for the most common AWS services.
Smart alerting on logs

Ingest log files directly into Gateway Hub in order to properly understand the health of applications, particularly after an event has occurred. This also includes the improvement of alerting on logs.

Smarter metric rules Simple alerting based on the historical metric data.
Transaction Monitoring A complete overhaul of existing Fix Analyser and Message Tracker capabilities to deliver scalable solution with simpler configuration and better output.
Integration with ticketing systems Integration with external ticketing systems.
Ease of deployment

Scripted Netprobe installs for easy deployment. This also includes the useful Gateway configuration examples and templates making deployment easier in Geneos.

   

Capacity Planner

Feature Description
Savings plan to include a visualisation of risk Visual representation for a particular commitment level of how much the savings would be if the actual usage was higher or lower than that observed historically.
Show migration from AWS to Azure options A cloud migration tab should be available for cloud environments and show alternative cloud providers.
Report on AWS and Azure reservation use A new tab in the recommendations panel that will display a summary of reserved instances.
Visualisation of consolidated cloud instance configuration recommendations A visual comparison of the difference between AWS and Azure for migration costs.
Pass through SSRS Reporting API An API allowing for the execution of SSRS reports and providing data from those reports in a structured format that can be used in alternative dashboarding or BI tools, such as PowerBI.
Dynamic recommendations in Forward Thinking Automatic updates of recommendations based on the modelled changes in the Forward Thinking scenario modelling.
Optimising burstable and non-burstable instances Determining those instances that would be more cost-effective burstable compared to non-burstable, and the other way around.
Automatically identifying instances that could be short lived or switched off periodically Quantifying idle time of machines and identifying those machines that could be more actively managed to operate when required, rather than having long periods of inactivity.
Migration to Google Cloud recommendations Recommendations for moving to Google Cloud and comparisons between AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud costs.
Auto suggest host and storage requirements in Forward Thinking Where storage constraints are met, and when a cluster no longer meets the requirements as a result of a Forward Thinking scenario outcome, have recommendations through the recommendations panel that suggest the required storage and compute capacity. You can accept the recommendations and automatically update the scenario.
