Version 6

    In addition to Node status improvements, Orion Platform 2019.2 includes a slew of other great new features and enhancements. There is a tremendous amount of diversity in these improvements, ranging from deployment flexibility to usability, all the way to security. So, no matter what your jam, this release is sure to have something for you.

     

     

    Default Admin Password

     

    If you're installing an Orion Platform product for the first time, perhaps on a lab system or in a staging environment, undoubtedly the first new thing you'll notice the first time you attempt to login to the Orion web interface is that you are now required to define a password for the default 'Admin' user account. No longer will you be able to login with the default 'admin' account with no password.  If you're upgrading from a previous release however, this change will not affect you. It's only applicable to new installs of Orion. However, if you're still running your Orion instance with no password defined for the 'Admin' account, then let this post serve as a reminder to check that off the to-do list.

    Azure SQL DB Support

     

    In the earlier Orion Platform 2018.2 release, we added support for utilizing Amazon®'s Relational Database Service (RDS) as a cloud-based alternative to more traditional on-prem Microsoft® SQL® database servers. This allowed those customers who were deploying Orion into the cloud using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) as their infrastructure as a service solution, to lower costs and reduce management overhead further by utilizing Amazon's database-as-a-service offering. As more organizations lift and shift workloads into the cloud, it's natural that their monitoring solution would be one of them.

     

    Since that release, however, we've received numerous requests to provide similar support for Azure SQL DB, Microsoft's equivalent alternative service offering to Amazon's RDS and in the Orion Platform 2019.4 we delivered! By adding support for Azure SQL DB to all product modules running atop Orion Platform 2019.2, you are now afforded greater deployment flexibility and choice than ever before, without the worry of being locked into a single cloud vendor. Best of all, using Azure SQL DB as the SQL database repository for Orion is just as easy as using a local on-prem MSSQL database server instance.

     

    Regardless If you're installing Orion for the first time or migrating your Orion instance to the cloud, all the magic begins in the Configuration Wizard. Simply enter in the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the SQL Server instance as shown in your Azure Portal and your credentials.  With the introduction of Azure SQL DB, Orion now also supports the use of Azure Active Directory credentials for authenticating to the Azure SQL DB instance should you prefer not using SQL authentication.

    If this is a new Orion Platform installation you can either create an empty database from within your Azure Portal for Orion to use or the Configuration Wizard can automatically create one for you, no differently than if you were to deploy Orion on-prem. By default, the Configuration Wizard will create an S3 tier database, as that is the absolute lowest Azure SQL DB tier supported by the Orion Platform and its associated product modules. My favorite thing about Azure SQL DB though is how incredibly fast and easy it is to scale your database tier up or down from with the Azure portal as your needs or budget dictates.

     

    If for any reason you forget which Azure SQL database tier the Orion Platform is using, you can remind yourself from within the comfort of the Orion web interface simply by going to [Settings > All Settings > Database Details].

     

    Orion Agent Rediscovery

     

    Rediscovering things like newly added volumes, AppInsight applications, and interfaces on Agents has historically been a fairly binary operation. Your options were to either run a rediscovery against every Agent managed node associated with a given Polling Engine or none. There was really no way in which to specify additional criteria to narrow your rediscovery job to a subset of Agent managed nodes. This was obviously fairly limiting if you wanted to handle some Agent managed nodes different than others, such as production vs staging/lab machines, or by office/region. If you wanted these handled differently your only recourse was to divvy those Agents up across polling engines based upon their role or location.

     

    Given that this was hardly an ideal solution or for some customers, or even an option for others, we knew we could do better. In Orion Platform 2019.2 you can now specify rediscovery parameters for Agent managed nodes based upon node properties, such as IP Addressing, node caption naming conventions, and even Custom Properties. These properties can even be combined together to target a particular subset of Agents your wanting to be rediscovered, either one time, or on a recurring basis. You'll even find a convenient 'Preview' button which allows you to validate the rediscovery parameters you've specified actually return the Agent-managed nodes that were expected. Coupled with automatic import, these Agent rediscovery options provide the Ronco® Rotisserie equivalent of IT Management, allowing you to simply set it, and forget it.

     

    Linux Agent Metrics

     

    More than a few keen-eyed observers have noticed a slight discrepancy when monitoring Linux nodes using the Agent when compared to those same nodes being monitored via SNMP. Namely, the absence of specific volume types, such as Swap Space, Shared Memory, Memory Buffers and more. Fortunately, in this release, we've corrected that injustice and now provide visibility into all the same volume types with the Linux Orion Agent that are available when polling via SNMP. No longer will you need to make difficult compromises or tradeoffs when deciding to switch your node polling method from SNMP to the Linux Agent!

     

    Orion Platform 2018.4Orion Platform 2019.2

     

    Orion Agent SDK

     

    Ever since the initial first release of the Orion Agent, it's been possible to utilize the Orion SDK to script the push deployment of new agents to remote machines no differently than you can through the Orion web interface. While this has been great, those systems have to be accessible via RPC and WMI for Windows or SSH for Linux for the agent to be deployed. Additionally, those machines where the Agent is deployed must be able to communicate back to the Orion server or one of its associated polling engines. For those customers who would prefer to pre-deploy the Agent in a passive mode (server initiated), either using Chef, Puppet, SCCM or even SolarWinds Patch Manager, there has really not been any good way to script or automate managing those systems. Instead, users have had to add those passive agents to Orion manually, one by one. Which is perhaps fine if you have the occasional one or two, but not so much fun when you have dozens or even hundreds of newly deployed Agents to manage in Orion.

     

    With Orion Platform 2019.2 this is now a problem of the past, as in this release you can fully script and automate the adding of passive agents to your Orion instance using the Orion SDK. Simply pass all the same parameters you would normally be prompted to enter when adding a passive agent through the Orion web interface as part of your script. For example, the IP address of the machine where the passive agent is already deployed. Within seconds of executing your script, you should see your passive agent appear under [Settings > All Settings > Manage Agents] of the Orion web interface.

     

     

     

    Manually Provision Agent Plugins

     

    Some organizations have remote offices in very remote regions of the world where latency is very high and bandwidth is a sparse, precious commodity. While the Orion Agent is extremely lightweight to deploy and bandwidth efficient during normal operation, when the Agent is initially provisioned it downloads any and all dependencies necessary to perform whatever function it has been asked to do, such as functioning as a QoE sensor, NetPath Probe, or becoming a managed node, to name only a few uses for the Agent. Depending which functions are being used, the age of the operating system, and how up-to-date the machine is with Windows Updates, the Agent plugin dependencies can in some cases total a couple of hundred megabytes in size. If you're needing to provision dozens of Agents in one of these remote regions with high latency connections and very little bandwidth, it can take a very long time before all those Agents finish downloading all necessary plugins and dependencies, if they don't give up before then. Worse yet, if you're doing this deployment during working hours, the download of plugins and dependencies for all those Agents can significantly impede other people's ability to function in that office, as all available bandwidth could be consumed by those Agents attempting to download their plugins and plugin dependencies.

     

    After upgrading to Orion Platform 2019.2 you will now have the ability to pre-provision all Agent plugins and their related dependencies, thus completely eliminating the need for them to be downloaded from their associated polling engine as well as the potential to impact to end users working in that remote office during the Agent provisioning process. To get started, simply copy the contents of the 'C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\AgentManagement\Plugins' directory on the main Orion server to the ‘C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Agent\Plugins’ directory of the Windows machine where you want to deploy the Agent. How you get those files to their intended destination is entirely up to you. You can use a CD, DVD, USB drive, or even a local file share. Once the agent plugins and their related dependances have been copied to the appropriate directory on the remote machine where the Agent will be installed, install and configure the Agent as you normally would. The Agent should now use the local plugin repository rather than downloading those plugins across the wire from the polling engine it's associated with.  If you're pre-provisioning Linux or AIX Agents, you can follow these exact same steps. The only difference is the directory where the agent plugins are stored. For Linux or AIX Agents, be sure to copy them to the  '/opt/SolarWinds/Agent/bin/Plugins' directory.

     

    This same method can also be used when upgrading Agents using a package management or software distribution solution like SolarWinds Patch Manager, or Microsoft SCCM. Simply deploy the contents of the 'C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\AgentManagement\Plugins' directory from the main Orion server to the appropriate directory listed above on the machine where the Agent is installed. Then execute the unattended Agent upgrade process as you normally would.

     

     

     

    Continuing on the momentum of the previous release, Orion Platform 2019.2 adds even more direct links to PerfStack where you can cross-correlate metrics across a variety of different entities and entity types to quickly identify the root cause of issues in your environment. Now, simply click on the numeric value or linear gauge in any of the 30 updated resources and you will be launched directly into PerfStack where that metric is then automatically plotted for you over time, ready for you to begin your analysis.

     

     

    The following table lists all thirty Orion resources which have been updated in this release to link their respective metrics directly to PerfStack.

    Automatic Removal of Unknown Volumes

     

    In today's highly virtualized word, volumes are no longer heavy metal rectangles which are physical components of the server itself that are seldom, if ever, removed or added from the machine. Instead, volumes are simply additional storage capacity which can be easily added or removed on a whim with just a few mouse clicks or keystrokes. As such, it's not uncommon these days for new volumes to be added or removed as storage capacity needs change over the course of a server's lifecycle. This, however, results in some additional overhead to keep the monitoring server up-to-date with these changes in the environment. While scheduled, recurring, discoveries with automatic import helps address the automating the monitoring of new volumes as they're added to servers in the environment, volumes which are removed remain managed in Orion until they're manually deleted by someone with Node Management rights. Hunting down all these 'unknown' volumes can also be a tedious process which is why it's often seldom done. The result is wasted volume licenses and bogged down polling engines, wasting polling cycles trying to monitor volumes that will never return.

     

     

    In our neverending quest to reduce management overhead, we have now added the ability to automatically remove these 'Unknown' volumes after a predetermined period of time, which is of course user configurable. Located under [Settings > All Settings > Orion Polling Settings] you will find a new option intuitively entitled 'Automatically Remove Unkown Volumes', which once enabled will as the name suggests, will remove any volumes from being managed by Orion if they have been 'Unknown' for longer than the number of days defined in 'Remove Unkown Volumes After' field. To ensure we are not inadvertently removing 'Unknown' volumes immediately upon upgrading to Orion Platform 2019.2 that you may not want to be deleted, we have disabled this option by default. We do, however, recommend enabling this option and removing 'Unknown' volumes after a reasonable number of days as part of any good monitoring hygiene practice.

     

     

    Secure Syslog Alerts

     

    For several years it's been possible to send SNMP Traps as an alert action, securely using SNMPv3. There has, however, not been any equivalent for sending Syslog messages as part of an alert trigger action in a similarly secure fashion, until now. With the release of Orion Platform 2019.2, you will now find a new option to send Syslog messages via TCP, not just UDP, as in previous releases. There is also an additional option for sending those Syslog messages via TCP using TLS encryption, providing secure communications and data privacy for data in motion. With these new capabilities, you can now safely and securely send alerts via Syslog to other Syslog receivers like Kiwi Syslog, or another Orion instance running Log Analyzer via TCP for improved reliability of message delivery and TLS encryption to comply your latest with security policies and regulatory mandates.

     

     

    HSRP Addresses

     

    Oddly as it may seem, IP addresses configured on Cisco routers for use with HSRP are not expressed using the traditional industry standard MIB2 ipAdEntAddrhttp://oid-info.com/get/1.3.6.1.2.1.4.20.1.1OID. This information is instead tucked away in Cisco's private cisco-hsrp-mib , out of reach from Orion's normal mechanisms for gathering IP addresses assigned to a node. What that meant was it was not possible to search for a node via the 'Search for Nodes' resource using any HSRP IP address that was configured on a device. It also meant that any Orion product module that attempted to associate information to a given Node via its HSRP address, like NetPath, was unable to because Orion was unaware of that node's HSRP addresses. Fortunately for you, that's all now a thing of the past. With Orion Platform 2019.2, Orion will now collect all HSRP addresses assigned to a given node, allowing you to quickly find nodes by their HSRP addresses and properly associating disparate information from Orion product modules to its associated node.

    FortiGate CPU & Memory

     

    Those of you running FortiGate® firewalls in your environment should be pleased to hear that Orion Platform 2019.2 now natively supports monitoring of both CPU and Memory utilization for these devices out-of-the-box. No longer will you need fumble with Universal Device Pollers. Best of all, you can even monitor these metrics in real-time via PerfStack Real-Time Polling! If you're already monitoring your FortiGate Firewalls with Orion via SNMP, there's nothing additional you need to do. Simply upgrade your Orion product module to the latest version that includes Orion Platform 2019.2 and these metrics will begin being collected. If you were previously using Universal Device Pollers to monitor the CPU and Memory utilization on your FortiGate Firewalls, you may want to consider removing those pollers after upgrading to reduce polling overhead.

     

     

    Dynamic External Nodes

     

    For years now Orion has had the notion of External Nodes, which essentially represents a node that typically is not owned or managed by you and does not respond to ICMP, SNMP, WMI, etc.. The primary purpose of external nodes is for assigning application templates from Server & Application Monitor. Those application templates are commonly HTTP/HTTPS User Experience Monitors or TCP Port Monitors for monitoring external websites and SaaS applications, but there are many more uses for External Nodes. These are simply two examples.

     

     

    The trouble with External Nodes historically has been since they don't poll any information, they also don't update their IP address you edit the properties of an External node and select 'Dynamic IP'. That means in previous releases, you couldn't have External nodes with dynamic IP addresses. So if you had assigned an application template to an External node and its IP address ever changed, that application would report a 'Down' status even if the application being monitored was really 'up'. That was because Orion was still polling that application using the original IP address of the node prior to it changing. Your only recourse for correcting this issue was to delete the node, re-add it to Orion, and reassigning any application templates you had assigned while losing any historical data for the applications monitored on that node.

     

    With the release of Orion Platform 2019.2 we have addressed this glaring limitation of External nodes. Now, when the 'Dynamic IP Address' box is checked on an 'External' node, a reverse lookup against the hostname or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for that node is done every two minutes by default, automatically updating the IP address of that node. The frequency in which this query is done can be adjusted simply by updating the 'Node Status Polling' interval for the node.

     

     

    Newly Added SysObjectIDs

     

    Each and every release of the Orion Platform includes support for identifying new makes, models, and manufacturers of devices. This comes in large part from customers just like you, who help identify these new devices in the wild and report them to us in Tell Us Your Unknown Devices v2.0 thread.

     

    The following is a list of all new devices which whill now be properly identified by Orion Platform 2019.2. If you're running the latest release of the Orion Platform and the 'Machine Type' for any of your devices are reported as 'Unknown', simply post its SysObjectID to the Tell Us Your Unknown Devices v2.0 thread along with its make, model and manufacturer, and we will ensure it's properly identified as such in the next release of the Orion Platform.
