What's New in 5.6
Native Cisco ACI Integration
With SevOne 5.6, operations teams can monitor and manage the performance of their Cisco ACI infrastructure and automatically understand physical, endpoint and tenant topological relationships. SevOne 5.6 can also monitor KPIs related to network and infrastructure utilization across enterprise and carrier-based ACI implementations while providing granular reporting and deep performance alerts.
Enhanced Infrastructure Content
(Cisco ACI, MPLS VPN and VMware)
Operations teams have been able to automatically understand physical and logical network topological relationships since SevOne 5.5. In SevOne 5.6 we extend the discovery techniques so users can visualize L2/L3 network connectivity with real-time status overlays for Cisco ACI, MPLS LDP tunnels and VMware-based infrastructure. These L2/L3 relationships are stored as metadata and can be accessed via a topographical display as shown here, or directly via the SevOne northbound API.
Improved Reporting and Infrastructure Visualization
(Performance, Status Maps and Topological Context Report)
With SevOne 5.6, we’ve included reporting framework enhancements that make the SevOne Digital Infrastructure Management Platform more responsive. Users can view alerts and members for nodes and paths that are in-line with a single click. Alerts are displayed instantly as soon as they are created. And, thanks to a new push architecture, maps render faster, support more devices on screen, and offer a completely refreshless experience.
Flow Alerting and Enhancements
In SevOne 5.6, users that collect flow-based information for deeper visibility into their infrastructure can now create policies and thresholds and generate alerts based on that information. In addition to improved IPFIX Object Template support Citrix AppFlow, and general NetFlow variable length field support, SevOne 5.6 provides deeper visibility into infrastructure use and shortens the time from information collected to insights gained.
Restful API Platform Automation
With SevOne, operations teams can now automate platform operations actions such as the creation, deletion and updating of objects, devices, sources, metadata, alerts, policies, groups, reports and maps. Additionally the new RESTful API allows operators to integrate alerts and conditions via WebHooks, paving the way for more comprehensive integration between SevOne and other operational tools.
