We've just wrapped up the Server & Application Monitor 6.1.1 Service Release, meant to address any major outstanding issues identified in SAM 6.1 since its official release. Now it's time once again to turn our attention to the future of Server & Application Monitor. With that said, below is a list of items the team is currently working on.

 

  • AppInsight for IIS
    • Sites
    • Application Pools
  • Optional Agent for Monitoring Windows Applications and Servers that addresses the following needs:
    • Allows for polling host and applications behind firewall NAT or proxies
    • Polling node and applications across multiple discrete networks that have overlapping IP address space
    • Allow for reliable and secure encrypted polling over a single port
    • Support low bandwidth, high latency connections
    • Polling nodes across domains where no domain trusts have been established
    • Full end to end encryption between the monitored host and the Orion poller
  • Application stack integration and visualization (E.g. visual mapping through the entire application stack to help identify root cause of performance and availability issues)
  • Performance & Scalability Improvements
  • Web Based Advanced Alert Manager
  • Packet-level Traffic Analysis and Classification
  • Web Based Syslog and Trap Management
  • Unmanage Behavior Improvements
  • Disk Volume Capacity Forecasting
  • Mandatory Custom Properties
  • Independant Volume Thresholds
  • Hardware Health Improvements
  • Support for SQL Server 2014

 

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!
