Last updated on 14 September, 2022


  • Improved SNMP Poll Now diagnosis messages.
  • Improved Poll Now error messages when running external/uploaded scripts.
  • During upgrade, collector will report any processes it can’t kill that it must kill to upgrade.
  • Installer will warn if collector user lacks required permissions.
  • Various improvements to collector logging.
  • Better -help output for !tlist debug command.
  • Handle SNMP agents that return “noSuchName” in the “error-status” field.
  • Default configuration changes to watchdog.conf:
    • wrapper.logfile.compress.maxfiles changed from 10 to 5
    • wrapper.logfile.maxfiles changed from 3 to 2
  • Default configuration changes to wrapper.conf:
    • wrapper.logfile.compress.maxfiles changed from 10 to 20
    • wrapper.logfile.maxfiles changed from 3 to 2
  • The following configuration directives have been renamed:
    • discover.global.timeoutInSec -> discover.default.timeoutInSec (default 3600)
    • discover.perfmon.timeout -> discover.perfmon.timeoutInSec (default 120)
    • discover.wmi.timeout -> discover.wmi.timeoutInSec (default 120)
  • Added AD script timeout configuration directive discover.script.timeoutInSec with a default value of 300 seconds.


  • Fixed issue where sbwinproxy would use more memory than necessary when communication to the agent was interrupted.
  • Fixed an issue where a PowerShell script would report “The screen cannot be set to the number of lines and columns specified.” when run from Poll Now or the debug window. This happened because the collector tried to set the screen column count to the default value despite it already being set to the default value.
  • Fixed a bug where WMI queries would fail due to an improperly handled error code that requires re-authentication.
  • Fixed issue where ping collection would fail with some firewalls due to sequence ID reuse.
