Geneos Compatibility Matrix

Supported Geneos versions

ITRS supports all released versions based on the current plus the previous major versions of Geneos. Only the latest major version (currently GA4.x.x) will receive regular fixes and enhancements. In exceptional circumstances, critical fixes may be back ported to previous major versions where it is not reasonably possibly to upgrade to newer versions.

The supported Geneos versions are:

  • GA4.x.x (current major version)
  • GA3.x.x (previous major version, end of life on 31 January, 2020). Please note, these versions may not be supported on some newer platforms, databases, browsers and applications. See Geneos GA3: Compatibility Matrix.
  • SSO Agent 1.x.x
  • Open Access versions 2.x (end of life 31 January, 2020)
  • Gateway Hub 1.x.x

Operating system support

  • All 32-bit applications are assumed to be running on 32-bit operating system architectures, or 32-bit applications running on 64-bit operating system architectures running in 32-bit mode.
  • All 64-bit applications are assumed to be running on 64-bit operating system architectures.

For Linux

When Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is running in Enforcing mode, it may deny certain functions on Geneos depending on the implemented configurations and policies.

To see which functions SELinux denies, check the audit log. The log is typically located in /var/log/audit.log, where the log type entry is type=AVC. The audit log provides the details of any denied access. For example, denied connection to the TCP port.

If you experience issues related to this mode, you may opt to disable the SELinux, or create policy modules to grant the required access. Please contact your administrator or security team for assistance.

Geneos compatibility and lifecycle

This section outlines all the changes to Geneos compatibility and lifecycle. ITRS will always work with you to minimise impact of any changes, and to listen to your feedback. If you have any queries, please contact ITRS Support.

The notice of change in the Geneos compatibility identifies the components, plug-ins, or features that will be no longer supported by ITRS in any future releases.

Note: The minimum compatible Geneos version that will work with version 5.0 and above is 3.6. This is related to the LZO compression library being removed in 5.0 onwards.
