IpMonitor: What We're Working On

Hi everyone – the IpMonitor team is hard at work developing a number of key enhancements:

1. Bandwidth monitors will separate inbound and outbound traffic. This enhancement will provide a more detailed view of bandwidth usage, allowing the ability to test incoming and outgoing data rates.

2. Use Windows credentials for IpMonitor login.  

3. Define customized device types. This will help organize data in reports. 

4. Create a monitor and settings and deploy to a list of servers. This “templatized” deployment will save time and decrease the possibility of errors when deploying the same monitors to multiple devices.

5. Configure reports with non-contiguous times.  Customize timeframes to leave out weekends, evening hours, etc.

6. Enhanced Exchange support - Support for Exchange 2010. 

7. A shiny new printer monitor

8. The ability to sort columns in reporting view

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. 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!

Re: IpMonitor: What We're Working On

Hi Christine

Great to see these new features being worked on.

Please also don't forget to fix the old bugs, some of which have been around for several years:

  1. Case 30707: Hour Reports don't revert to current data (ie. last 60 minutes and last 24 hours) after previously viewing custom time/date ranges.
  2. Case 37503: Discovery engine not populating contact info.
  3. Case 37698: Group Reports don't work over Default SmartGroups.
  4. Case 35984: Monitor XML tags <addr> and <target> not implemented consistently across all monitor types.
  5. GSM Alert 7-bit translation is stripping special characters like square brackets.  Peter Cooper once said that he would enter it as a bug.

Thanks - Simon

2. Use Windows credentials for IpMonitor login.  



 

Integration with Active Directory would be an excellent addition to IpMonitor, our company would really appreciate this addition and I would be more than happy to help with testing.

Re: IpMonitor: What We're Working On

How about enabling the Move button on monitors so we can easily move them without going through the extra step of moving them first to Orphan Objects.

Also, why not pop up the device list when cloning a monitor so we can easily move cloned monitors.

All the code is there already, it's just a matter of mostly removing the constraints of what you allow users to do.

Thanks,

Adrian

Re: IpMonitor: What We're Working On

Christine,

Great to hear about those upcoming features.  My colleague has opened a support case because we are running 8.5 and planning to upgrade to 10 but he was toald the SOAP interface was removed.  We have heavility integrated ipMonitor with our CMDB (assetr inventory) and run a nightly process to update ipMonitor from this CMB (add/delete/modify monitors based on Asset type , ...).  Is there anything else that can be used (API interface, direct access to backend DB, ...) ?

We would be really left without options if the functionality is gone.  What is your suggestion ?

 

Regards

Hi GriGri - who told your colleague the SOAP functionality was removed? It's still there....
