General Deployment Collector – 22.0

General Deployment Collector 22.0 will be available the week of June 20, 2016. This Collector version will become our next mandatory version, and includes everything in Collector versions GD 21.0, EA 21.019 and EA 21.020.  

Note that this Collector version requires that you enable TLS support for monitored 7-mode NetApp devices. You can enable TLS support on your NetApp devices using the command  “options tls.enable on”.

Compared to GD 21.0, GD Collector 22.0 includes the following:

New Features:

  • This collector version includes support for LogicMonitor’s new Netscan improvements.  See our release notes and detailed documentation for more information on these improvements.

Improvements:

  • Our AutoProperties subsystem previously relied on detecting system OID, system info and system IP properties successfully with one version of SNMP before these device properties were set for the device.  That was causing issues in some cases where not all properties were detected.  In these cases, we now use the SNMP version that provided the most properties and set those properties for the device.
  • We’ve changed the way we calculate Netflow and sFlow in/out bytes to make Top Flow data more accurate in certain cases.
  • We’ve added more detail to the !nsplist and !nspdetail debug commands, including device DNS, system name, properties and more.
  • We’ve added support for a local collector configuration file, agent.conf.local. Any configurations added to this local file will override the generic agent.conf configuration file, and the agent.conf.local file won’t be editable via the LogicMonitor UI. This enables you to configure settings such as debug.disable=false and remotesession.disable=true, without worrying about these security settings being changed from the web UI.

Bug Fixes:

  • Windows Netscan policies sometimes failed to discover multiple active devices. This was due to the way we interpreted multi-ping responses.  We’ve changed how we handle these responses to correct this issue.
  • Active Discovery was not assigning instances to the correct instance group if the group name ended with a space. We now trim instance group names that end in spaces.
  • Eventsources configured to monitor SNMP v3 Traps weren’t working correctly.  This has been fixed. 
  • Ping packet send intervals have been increased from 250ms to 500ms to fix issues reporting invalid ping loss.
