EA Collector – 25.300

EA Collector 25.300 will be released November 9, 2017, and includes the following:

Improvements:

  • With v97, Service Checks can now track SSL Expiration and alert on various SSL-related errors. Types of errors include:
    • Certificate expired
    • CA untrusted
    • CN mismatch hostname
    • SSL connection failed
  • Significant performance improvements for Perfmon collection.
  • Performance and capacity improvements for WMI collection.
  • Windows Collector Installer has been improved to better explain permissions/installation instructions. It will now automatically detect if the computer is on the domain and show a separate Domain field only in this case. 
  • Several improvements to avoid unnecessary Collector restarts.
  • Improvements to reduce CPU consumption when Collector caching is used.
  • Use of the VMWare API to discover/identify ESX devices more efficiently.
  • Upgraded the Collector’s JDK to version 8u144.
  • In some cases, the Collector reports an incorrect system property that needs to be removed. For special cases like this, we added a debug command !hostproperty to manually add, update, or delete a system property of a device. Note that this will update the device info immediately and can affect which DataSources apply. 

Bug Fixes:

  • The output and error messages of ‘Test Script’ have been fixed/improved.
  • If ‘integratedSecurity’ is specified in the URL of a JDBC DataSource, then the URL will not be overwritten when doing the query.
  • Fixed an issue with the Collector restarting in Docker environments.
