These are the highlights of this release:

  • With the addition of the Geneos AWS Monitor plugin, you can now monitor your AWS resources in a single enterprise platform alongside your on-premise and hybrid environments. The plugin collects AWS CloudWatch metrics, logs, and events to provide unified information across your AWS resources. Data is collected with minimal configuration and Geneos entities are created dynamically as you deploy more AWS services. This is a fully supported integration to give you a single pane of glass view of your entire deployment stack. In addition, the AWS plugin can:
    • Monitor AWS services such as EC2, ECS, EKS, RDS, EBS, EFS, firewall, billing, and more.
    • Generate close to real-time alerts using Geneos powerful rule and alert capabilities.
    • Minimise configuration with built-in dynamic entity mappings for more automated discovery.
    • Minimise cost by using a single enterprise tool for monitoring.
    • See your entire estate in one platform with monitoring that scales with you.
  • Gateway can now collect statistics to help determine the requirements for storing Gateways data in the Obcerv platform (formerly Hub 3).
  • The slash character (/, U+002F) is now allowed in the Geneos component names generated by dynamic mappings.
  • New <probeHostname> macro in the Self-Announcing Netprobe setup file which supports hostnames with dots in the names.
  • Various updates to fix known security vulnerabilities.
