A little over a month ago we released a feature packed SAM 5.2, but the SAM team are hardly ones to rest on their laurels. In fact, they're already plugging away; ensuring the next release is even better than the last. Some of the bigger features currently on the drawing board include..

 

  • Support for Monitoring Windows Server Network Interfaces via WMI
  • Control Windows Services (Stop/Start/Restart/Pause) from within the SAM Web Console
  • Terminate Processes Running on Remote Hosts Through the Real-Time Process Explorer
  • Reboot Managed Windows Hosts Directly from the SAM Web Console
  • Certificate Based Authentication for Linux/Unix/Nagios Script Monitors
  • Native Support for Monitoring Windows Volume Mount Points
  • Windows Server 2012 Platform Support for SAM Installations
  • Microsoft SCOM Management Pack for SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

 

PLEASE NOTE:  We are working on these items based on this priority order, but this is NOT a commitment that all of these enhancements will make the next release.  We are working on a number of other smaller features in parallel.   If you have comments or questions on any of these items (e.g. how would it work?) or would like to be included in a preview demo, please let us know!
