Capacity Planner Release Notes 103

Overview

Released: December 2019

Capacity Planner release notes contain the list of all new or enhanced features and a list of all issues fixed in the current release.

Highlights

These are the highlights of this release:

  • The right-sizing operation in Forward Thinking has been enhanced to provide more flexibility. You can now specify a minimum number of vCPUs to be used in the operation and the minimum allowable memory configuration. You can also configure the buffer used when ensuring a level of headroom is available after right-sizing.
  • A new dynamic grouping has been created that will automatically tag any workload with low or high levels of activity based on the selected summary model.
  • A new data insertion API has been created, allowing for more flexibility with regards to submitting data for modelling with Capacity Planner.

New features and enhancements

Issue key Release description
ICP-1183 The flexibility of right-sizing workloads has been improved. You can now specify a minimum CPU count when downsizing and change the allowable headroom buffer from the current default 70%.
ICP-1171 API now allows for full creation of entities, metrics, grouping values, and the recording of time series data. Using API, you can now create an application-specific physical baseline.
ICP-1154 Custom models can now be created at five minute granularity, for example, between 12:45 and 18:35.

ICP-1131

Reports can now represent entities such as servers, machines, and instances that are no longer modelled in the current default baseline window.

ICP-1055

Capacity Planner now detects inactive workloads and cloud instances during processing time, and makes them available as a grouping in the sunburst. It creates an Activity grouping for all workloads, with the value determined at processing time.

ICP-505

When a session times out, the user is now correctly logged out and the UI reflects that.

   

Issues fixed

Issue key Release description
ICP-1249 It is now possible to resize the Storage panel in resolutions greater than 1920x1080.

ICP-1247

The issue with capacity time series extending beyond the resource utilisation for machines that are present in the estate but not generating resource utilisation has been fixed.
ICP-1207 The options in the export metadata window are now displayed correctly.
ICP-1163 The cache used on the user interface when certain modelling activities have taken place is now always refreshed correctly.
