ITRS is pleased to announce the release of Geneos GA3.2.x.
Geneos GA3.2 continues from our previous production release GA3.1. Geneos release notes contain the list of enhancement of features, and set of issues fixed in the current release.
Web Dashboard version GA3.2.1 is now available including some important fixes including authenticated access to Web Dashboard.
Last updated: 15 October, 2015
We discovered an issue (GWX-2655) with GA3.2.0 version of Gateway 2, and a fix is now available in GA3.2.1 version of Gateway 2. If you have downloaded GA3.2.0 version of Gateway 2, we advise you to upgrade to GA3.2.1 version.
Note: We have made a change to the Geneos version numbering to better align with our release process. Starting from now, our regular releases (about once every 2 months) will increment the middle digit instead of the last digit. For example, GA3.2.0, GA3.3.0. The third digit will be used for ad-hoc fixes planned in-between regular release cycle. This change does not affect the version number format or the schema version compatibility.
The highlights include the following:
- New Exegy market data feed adapter for MDM plugin, adding to the number of feed adapters already available for monitoring the health of your market data.
- Toolkit plugin now displays the script execution time as a headline variable.
- Oracle, Sybase and Sybase-Server plugins can now be configured to drop database connection at end of every sample.
- Web Montage now supports multi-cluster connection to Open Access, giving a global view into Geneos data.
- Web Dashboard now supports authentication.
- Improved compatibility support:
- Added support for Internet Explorer 10 and 11.
- Added support for Linux SUSE SLES 11 and 12.
- A new 64 bit Licence Daemon is now available for Linux platform.
GA3.2 introduces the following compatibility changes:
