Geneos Release Notes GA3.6

ITRS is pleased to announce the release of Geneos GA3.6.x.

Geneos GA3.6 continues from our previous production release GA3.5. This release contains the bugs fixes and enhancements.

Released: 31 May 2016

Updated: 11 August 2016

Gateway 2, Netprobe, and EUEM Netprobe components are updated (version GA3.6.1) to remove RPATH ELF header.

Updated: 27 June 2016

New 64-bit Netprobe binary on AIX platform is available to download.

Highlights

The highlights include the following:

  • Active Dashboard Modifiers allow you to create rich dashboard visualisation by linking a data item (cell value, davaview, Managed Entity, etc) to properties of dashboard objects, like fill colour, line thickness, visible boarder and so on. Active Console comes with number of predefined modifiers. It is now possible to easily create, modify, export and import your own custom modifiers to create graphically rich dashboards.
  • Reuters RFA adapter for Market Data Monitoring currently supports subscribing to streaming data. This enhancement adds the ability to subscribe to snapshot data so that intermittent service availability checks (eg - permissioning, load balancing etc) or oneoff data dumps (eg - end of day price) can be implemented.
  • Gateway Setup Editor (GSE) is a standalone application that is normally launched from within your Active Console in a single process. It is possible to configure your Active Console to launch GSE in a separate process so that for example your Active Console is not impacted by any issues in GSE while administering and configuring Gateways. This enhancement enables x-path evaluation when GSE is run as a separate process so that you can now use GSE in standalone mode with full support for x-path evaluation.
  • Added database support for: Mysql 5.7, SAP / Sybase ASE 16, mariaDB 5.5, 10, 10.1, MSSQL Server 2014.
  • Added support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2.
