Today marks the release of Entuity 15.5 and this one is filled with exciting new offerings that boost automation and give customers even greater flexibility in tailoring their network monitoring requirements to support business objectives.
Here’s a quick look at what’s new:
User-Defined Polling— enables customers to extend Entuity’s already powerful data collection system according to their needs, allowing for maximum flexibility over their monitoring environment. All polled data is visible through the Entuity web UI and available for reporting and event/incident generation.
RESTful API— enables customers to automate and easily link workflow systems with their network monitoring system. Entuity’s RESTful API delivers a modern approach to performing administrative tasks either for a single server or across multi-server environments.
Enhanced Event Management System (EMS) Trap Handling—The EMS SNMP Trap Handling function has been enhanced to allow incident/event integration directly from the EMS to third-party products, such as Dell Foglight, IBM Tivoli and NetCool, HP Software, and other frameworks.
Reporting—New reports have been added to the already extensive reporting capabilities of Entuity to make it easier for users to identify threshold values throughout the system. This is particularly useful for network administrators who may typically have thousands of threshold values to manage. Thresholds can now be adjusted through the Entuity UI while allowing administrators to easily maintain visibility and documentation into which settings have been changed, what the new values are and what the default values were before the change.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Support – This powerful new feature is the equivalent of adding ‘public cloud’ management to a previously ‘private cloud’ or on-premises infrastructure management only product. Entuity now discovers the AWS virtual computing platform and represents it in the Entuity UI alongside on-premises equipment.
Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Enhancements – enables UCS components to be discovered and monitored in real-time through one point of entry: the UCS Manager which is an intrinsic part of every UCS deployment.
