Changes and Improvements

The password encryption algorithm is now handled by the PATROL Agent.
The EMC SMI-S provider v.8.x could crash when unsupported VNX/CLARiiON requests were executed. To prevent this issue, the faulty requests are now ignored.
The calculation method of the Spare Disk Count attribute (EMC Disk Array) has been improved to report more accurately on the number of spare disks available in the array.
EMC CLARiiON Response Time: A number of 10 (or less) collected I/Os between two data collects is not sufficient to accurately report on response time for EMC CLARiiON's controllers, physical disks and volumes. In that case, EMC Storage Monitoring sets the Response Time attribute for these Monitor Types (EMC Controller, EMC Physical Disk, EMC Volume) to 0 to avoid triggering irrelevant alarms.
The conversion method used to calculate units for Response Time attributes has been improved to report accurately on the actual collected data.
The error message originally triggered when the Storage Pool’s size was invalid has been removed. All related information is now available in the debug log file (%PATROL_HOME%\log), when this option is enabled.

Fixed Issues

False alerts were triggered on the Response Time attribute of spare disks.
No alert actions were triggered on statistics attributes even though the number of times thresholds could be breached was reached.
EMC Storage Monitoring could experience timeout issues when collecting statistics from EMC VMAX3 storage systems through the EMC SMI-S provider version 8.
Error messages displayed in the debug log file (%PATROL_HOME%\log) when this option is enabled, have been improved to distinguish connection issues from server failures.
