We released a beta version of FrameFlow v2019.4 today. This new version adds improved UI performance, better compatibility for email templates, new date formatting options and a new option to control how many alerts it takes before an alert switches from success status to another status. Licensed customers can get the beta release by logging into their account on our site.
Most, if not all, applications and business processes are based on multiple components or units, each of which plays an important role in the overall operation of the process. So how do you judge the overall health of the system as a whole? FrameFlow's new Business Process event monitor lets you do exactly that.
Have you tried FrameFlow's integrated support for maintenance windows? Maintenance windows let you define regular periods of time when systems will be down for planned maintenance so you don't get unnecessary alerts about them. FrameFlow has full support for both recurring and one-time maintenance windows. Take a look at our two-minute video that explains how they work.
Python is becoming more and more popular as a scripting language for sysadmins. FrameFlow v2019.3 will add a new Python-based event monitor. Just like our PowerShell event monitor, this new event monitor will let you integrate your Python scripts directly with FrameFlow's monitoring and alerting engines.
FrameFlow v2019.3 is currently in the testing phase. If you are excited to try our new Python event monitor for yourself, contact us and we'll get you access to pre-release build that you can try for free.
VMware 6.7 disables TLS 1.0 and 1.1 by default. As a result if your are using one of FrameFlow's "legacy" event monitors for VMware you may see connection errors when trying to monitor VMware 6.7 hosts. To work around this we suggest that you switch to using our set of newer VMware monitors. They support v6.7 and offer improved features and functionality. If you prefer to stay with the legacy versions and need to monitor VMware 6.7, contact us for a patch that you can apply to your FrameFlow 2019.2 installation.
Update: The patch is now included in latest v2019.2 release. Log into our portal to download and upgrade.
We updated the v2019.2 release today to include a few fixes and updates. In particular, we fixed an issue that could affect multi-site communications. We also fixed a problem with system health monitoring using SNMPv2c. Lastly we added new options to control what is displayed on "List of Alerts" dashboard panels.
