The September 2023 update release for LogicVein’s ThirdEye and Net LineDancer products is now available. (revision r20230925.0922)
With this latest release of ThirdEye we have added a new derived metric type for SNMP Trap monitors that allows you to translate trap object values before they are processed or persisted. This makes it easy to convert status codes into more friend violation messages as well as always easier categorization of traps for applying trigger conditions.
We’ve made even more improvements to the performance of the monitor data processing. With one of these improvements the performance of marking an Incident with ten thousand devices in it as resolved went from 30 seconds to under 2 seconds. With another of our changes, we see the performance of new violations increased by 100% from 3ms to 1.5ms. In the coming months we expect to continue to make improvements in performance. Oddly enough this isn’t in response to any specific customer issues, but because once a developer gets started on this work, it is too much fun to stop.
Invalid Credential SNMP Retry Issue
In internal testing we found an issue where SNMP monitors could get into a bad state when invalid credentials are tried and we would begin retrying excessively. With this release we have fixed this issue.
This month we are releasing the first stage in our ongoing project of improving the Automation abilities of Net LineDancer. This first stage adds the ability to have a SmartChange job marked as in violation or not in violation based on a set of rules matching the output of the device.
As always, we continue to refine our device support. This release includes improvements for the following adapters:
- Alaxala AXS
- Anritsu PureFlowGS
- Cisco Firepower and ASA (Security Appliance)
- Hitachi Apresia
- Juniper JUNOS
