    mark wiggans

       SolarWinds Orion 8.5.1 - Service Pack 3

      This service pack requires Orion 8.5.1.

       
        Production: ftp://ftp.solarwinds.net/Orion/ServicePack/Orion8.5.1-SP3.zip

      Evaluation:  ftp://ftp.solarwinds.net/Orion/ServicePack/Orion8.5.1-SP3-Eval.zip



      Service Pack 3 includes a new web resource named "All Nodes - Tree (AJAX)". This is an incrementally loaded version of the "All Nodes - Tree" resource that appears on the Network Summary Home view by default. This new AJAX resource should perform better when monitoring  a larger number of nodes. To support this resource, the Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX Extensions package (ASPAJAXExtSetup.msi) is installed with SP3.

      Service Pack 3 resolves the following issues:
      - CPU load is now polled correctly for Windows devices with a large number of processes
      - Alert actions now work correctly with day of week filtering
      - Maps with non-ASCII names now appear correctly on the website
      - Execution of an external program or of VBScript with parameters now works correctly for Advanced Alert Actions and Trap rules
      - Alert Engine no longer repeatedly reports database connection errors
      - Database Details web page no longer results in a timeout error
      - Edit Custom List of Reports resource no longer results in a "Page cannot be found" error
      - The Report from Orion Report Writer resource now loads asynchronously
      - Website accounts are now configured correctly if Application Monitor is installed before the Configuration Wizard is run
      - A memory leak is fixed in the Custom Poller service
      - Web account limitations are now honored in Interface Traffic 95th Percentile reports
      - "The passed ordinal is out of range" error no longer occurs when upgrading certain older databases
      - Interface Traffic 95th Percentile reports no longer fail when throughput exceeds 2 GBps
      - Old OrionWeb.log files are now deleted automatically
      - The service pack version number is now available in the website footer
       
      This service pack includes the following fixes that were resolved in Service Packs 1 and 2:
      - Repeat intervals for alerts are no longer limited to 8 hours
      - The SolarWinds.Net Windows Event Log now overwrites as needed, eliminating the "SolarWinds.Net log file is full" message
      - New databases are now created case insensitive, even if the server default is case sensitive
      - CPU load is now polled correctly for Cisco devices that do not support the CISCO-PROCESS-MIB
      - Some missing Cisco devices are now correctly identified
      - The Alerting Engine service is now disabled by default on the Hot Standby, Additional Website, and Additional Poller installs to reduce database contention
      - Syslog reports can now be configured
      - Improvements to the Custom Polling Service allow it to keep up with larger custom polling configurations
      - The ability to set a subtitle is restored for the All Nodes resource
      - Clicking the Manage button now immediately remanages the node
      - Account Limitations now work correctly with Windows Authentication
      - Account information is now removed from emails sent with Report Scheduler
      - Additional diagnostic information is now available to the diagnostic tool
      - All Nodes resource works correctly when Level 1 grouping is "None"
      - Unmanaging a node now immediately updates node status to Unmanaged

      - An HTML link entered for a device contact will now be shown as a link on the website
