Geneos Release Notes GA3.3

ITRS is pleased to announce the release of Geneos GA3.3.x.

Geneos GA3.3 continues from our previous production release GA3.2. This release contains the bugs fixes and enhancements.

Released: 26 November 2015

Updated: 16 December 2015

We have made a change to the Geneos version numbering to better align with our release process. Starting from GA3.2.x, 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.

Known issue on MS-SQL Server: Please note there is an issue with database schema upgrade script (update-1.6.sql) on MS-SQL Server. We are working to fix this issue. In the meantime, if you are upgrading the database schema on MS-SQL Server. For assistance, please contact ITRS Support.

Highlights

The highlights include the following:

  • Secure EMF2 communication — TLS enabled transport:
    • End-to-end secure communication, providing privacy and data integrity within Geneos.
    • Ability to deploy secure (encrypted) and non-secure (non-encrypted) communication channels to allow for phased upgrade
    • Visibility into type of connection, allowing you to monitor for secure or non-secure communications within Geneos
  • Geneos event and audit reporting enhancements:
    • Gateway database logging now logs additional information giving you enhanced visibility into events and audit trail within Geneos.
    • User interactions like snoozing and user assignment are now logged to database.
    • Geneos system events like actions, alerts, active state changes, suspend/dropped connections, warning or critical severity cells being removed are now logged to database.
    • Geneos database schema version 1.6 or newer is required.
