EA Collector – 24.126

EA Collector 24.126 will be released July 14, 2017, and includes the following:

Improvements:

  • This Collector supports Easy Capacity Tuning! Simply navigate to the Collector configuration window and select a new Collector size (Small, Medium, or Large) from the dropdown menu. Select “Save and Restart” and we will automatically update all necessary parameters in the Collector’s configuration files for you. This is useful for increasing the capacity of your Collector after you have already installed it. The collector will log an event in the ‘Collector Events’ dialog when its size is changed.

  • Several improvements to support IPv6 for all data collection methods.
  • Support for IPv6 for Internal Service checks, not including traceroute (yet).
  • Added two more Expect.Open functions to support non-standard port specification for SSH: 
    • Expect.open(host, port, user, password, timeoutinseconds) 
    • Expect.open(host, port, user, password)
  • We have added a sanity check to any configuration changes made via the UI. Upon selecting “Save and Restart” the collector will check the configuration files to ensure that all values are valid and will not cause issues. For this reason, we highly recommend that all configuration changes are made via the UI (as opposed to modifying the files on the Collector device manually). The collector will also periodically check for errors during collector upgrade, credential rotation, and collector restart and log a Collector Event if issues are found. 
  • Updated the Collector’s JDK to JDK 8, Update 131.
  • Updated jedis.jar to version 2.9.0.
  • Updated our Apache HttpClient from 4.5.2 to 4.5.3.
  • Support for NTLM proxy authentication for Internal Service checks.
  • Debug command !detail will now show the unavailable schedule task history.
  • Added request and response detail to the !esx debug command.
  • Added “-help” option for !wmi, !wmimethod, !winevent, !syswmic debug commands (ex: “!wmi -help” will return details and examples for using the !wmi command).
  • Added “-help” option for !perfmon, !perfinfo, !typeperf debug commands (ex: “!perfmon -help” will return details and examples for using the !perfmon command)
  • Added the ability to configure a proxy for Internal Service checks. This configuration is set in the collector’s service.conf file.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue causing double backslashes to be interpreted incorrectly in Powershell scripts.
  • In some cases, normal script task timeout (typically due to collector restart) was causing Out of Memory errors resulting in high CPU. 
  • Fixed a bug causing the device to return no data when the ICMP ID is larger than 65535/2.
  • Applying a datasource filter with an empty variable was causing that instance to not appear.
