What's New In 5.4

Version 5.4 is Here

At SevOne we work tirelessly to ensure our solutions always remain on the cutting edge of infrastructure monitoring. With the introduction of version 5.4, we bring you important new capabilities, including:

Single Click Metric-To-Flow and Metric-To-Log

With single-click, integrated drill down from metrics-to-flows and from metrics-to-logs, SevOne can deliver insight into what happened (metrics), why it happened (logs), and who was affected (flows). When integrated with the SevOne Performance Log Appliance, SevOne Performance Appliance Solution becomes your single dashboard for integrated performance metrics, flows and logs across the entire infrastructure.

Days-To-Threshold Report

With SevOne, capacity planners can now see the number of days until specific resources reach a user-defined threshold. For example, they can easily view all resources that will exceed 80% utilization in 30 days or less. They can also exclude resources that have already been flagged as upgrade candidates. This capability is critical for both WAN and Data Center capacity teams because it allows them to plan upgrades based on an understanding of the lapsed time required to complete the upgrade.

Metadata For Enhanced Reports

Operations teams and capacity planners often desire extra descriptive information about devices and objects. With SevOne, they can now store this metadata and retrieve it in reports or view it in the user interface. For example, operations teams can note physical site addresses and contacts for specific devices.

With SevOne, capacity planners can log an upgrade date, approval status or work order number. And server administrators can record the software installed on a machine, as well as the software version of key components. This reduces the mean time to repair by eliminating the need to check inventory management tools to locate the devices. Users can also present metadata as a hyperlink to other SevOne data or even external systems -- allowing them to create adhoc, GUI-level integrations.

Language Localization

SevOne supports a translated user interface for multiple languages. SevOne now offers full support for French, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. Companies can run separate language translations from a single PAS, specific to the needs of each user. This is critical for organizations with multi-continent locations and diverse language requirements. And, for employees with specific language preferences, these capabilities provide a major boost to productivity.

Hierarchical Object Types for Simplified Reporting

Today’s networks consist of numerous devices running various operating systems and applications. This often creates challenges when collecting performance data because each major OS or application may have a different way of reporting objects. For example, the system might recognize a CPU as “Cisco IOS CPU,” “Windows WMI CPU,” or “Host Resources CPU.” When running a TopN report across these CPUs, users would have to specify each CPU type for inclusion in the report.

With the introduction of version 5.4, SevOne eliminates this issue. Users can now build reports across numerous complex objects using a single naming convention. This makes it faster and easier to create reports like “Worst Performing CPUs.”
