Welcome to SevOne Version 5.4

Welcome to SevOne Version 5.4

SevOne – the infrastructure monitoring platform engineered for speed at scale – is again enhancing the user experience by adding a myriad of new features in its latest release, version 5.4.

With the recent release of version 5.4, SevOne now offers more than 360 enhancements, most notably, the tight integration of metrics, flows and logs in one place.

This latest update bolsters capacity management, enhances reporting and allows for greater customization of SevOne.

Customers will benefit from these improvements in a multitude of ways. Some of the most impactful advancements are detailed below:

  • Capacity planning – One new feature is a report that reveals the number of days until specific resources reach a user-defined threshold. Perhaps a capacity planner wants to see all resources that exceed 80 percent utilization in 30 days or less. This report can exclude resources that planners have already flagged as upgrade candidates. This tool is an exceptional resource for WAN and Data Center capacity teams, as it gives them the ability to plan upgrades based on an understanding of the lapsed time required to complete an upgrade.
  • Metadata – Descriptive information about devices and objects can be helpful for operations teams and capacity planners to have. Users can now store metadata – locations, contact information, serial numbers, tag customers, etc. – in SevOne and retrieve it in reports or view it in the SevOne user interface. Capacity planners can log an upgrade date, approval status or a work order number. Users may present metadata as a hyperlink to other SevOne data, or even to external systems. This capability allows teams to create ad-hoc, GUI-level integrations from SevOne.
  • Simplified reporting – Networks consist of a variety of different device types running various operating systems and applications, which creates a challenge when collecting performance data. For example, the system may recognize CPU as “Cisco iOS CPU,” “Windows WMI CPU,” or “Host Resources CPU.” When a user runs the TopN report across these various CPUs, they would have to specify each CPU type for inclusion in the report. With SevOne’s new feature – Hierarchical Object Types – this is no longer and issue. Users can now build reports across any number of complex objects using a single naming convention.
  • Language localization – Version 5.4 includes full support for French, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. Companies can run separate language translations from a single PAS, depending on the needs of each user. For companies with global locations and diverse language requirements, version 5.4 meets organizational needs and boosts productivity.
