The following features have been implemented in this version:
|•||monitoring of the DC-to-DC converters|
|•||complete support for the I/O expansion units (I/O boards, power supplies, uplink and downlink cards).|
|•||monitoring of the CPU and memory boards (not just the CPUs and memory modules.|
|•||monitoring of the Crossbar and Clock units on M9000 systems|
Adds support for IBM Director Platform Agent 6.1.2.
|IBM Director 6.1.0 and 6.1.1 are not supported as they do not provide the necessary hardware information.|
Monitoring of Power Supply inputs.
|•||SEN_HW_NETWORK: New parameter "Connected To Physical Address" added.|
|•||SEN_HW_CAPACITYREPORT: New parameter "Degrees Below Warning " added.|
SNMP Port: The input property "SNMP Port" is now added so that the clients can configure the snmp port directly on the Portal web console. The default port number is 161.
|•||Cisco UCS systems are now supported|
|•||ESX4i systems are now supported|
|•||HP MSA Disk Arrays (All HP Servers) are now supported|
