Released: 11 March, 2019
ITRS is pleased to announce the release of Gateway Hub 1.2.x.
This release delivers the updated binaries for Gateway Hub in the ITRS Downloads page.
Gateway Hub is a brand new component in the Geneos ecosystem, providing the foundations for smarter monitoring, improved scalability, and a refreshed modern UI. The main features in this release are:
- Publishing of normalised data with schema to an external Kafka interface.
- Additional administration screens for the Web Console.
The Kafka Publishing available with Gateway Hub builds upon the feature previously available in the Gateway. With Gateway Hub, schemas can now be published along with the metric and event data, in order to provide easier integration with other applications, and the published data is now normalised, enabling simpler usage downstream.
This release brings the new administration screens for the Web Console, allowing licence management and configuration of Publishing.
These are the features and enhancements in the current release:
