With NTM 2.1 out the door we're now focusing on the features and functionality for the next release. The team is currently working on the following:
- Import User Defined Graphics
Users will be able to bring into the application their own custom graphics.
- Do Not Scan List/ Scan Exclusions option into the Discovery Settings page
Users will be able to configure scan exclusion to increase the scanning performance and skip scanning nodes which causes false alarms
- Retrieve & Display node Serial Number & MAC Address(s) http://thwack.solarwinds.com/ideas/2095
Not all vendor devices serial numbers will be polled in one release, due to the introduction of performance issues while scanning. We would encourage you to comment on which vendor devices we need to focus on. We will priorities accordingly depending on the response we get.
- Creating a new map from selected Node objects
This function will help in better representation & creating specific maps

PLEASE NOTE: While we are working on these items, 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!
