FrameFlow v2018.4 Released for IT Monitoring

As I write this, our development team is preparing v2018.4 for release. Version 2018.4 is a major update and we’ll be posting here in the coming days to tell you more about the features and updates that it includes.

In this new release, we’ve added 11 new device icons, each in our four standard sizes and in light and dark versions so they look great on all your dashboards and in the other parts of the FrameFlow interface.

You probably manage a lot of servers to power the information and data processing needs of your organization. Some of these servers may be in the cloud, but other servers need to be managed on site, or at remote sites within your business. Many of your servers and data centres are very important to the core functions of your operations and need to be continually monitored for availability, health and performance to ensure that your servers keep going strong and your networks keep flowing along… as you need them to be!

Many have referred to the Internet of Things (IoT) as the “third wave” of the internet evolution. Consumers can’t help but notice the increasing array of connected devices coming online, ranging from washing machines and refrigerators to personal fitness trackers and automobiles, and even intelligent machines imbedded into clothing, that are popping up everywhere. What many consumers may not realize is that industry is also getting on board with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in a big way. At FrameFlow, we’re acutely aware of how the growing IIoT is dramatically impacting our commercial world, and how important it is to monitor the performance of IIoT devices and sensors.

As the adoption of internet enabled devices continues to explode across all manner of consumer and industrial applications, so too does the need to monitor the performance and accuracy of such devices on your networks. At FrameFlow, we are acutely aware of the critical need to monitor the performance of IoT and IIoT devices and sensors, but we also know that such monitoring must be versatile and flexible enough to function well on existing and widely adopted network management protocols. This is one of several reasons why FrameFlow IT systems and server monitoring software plays quite nicely with one the most tried and true networking protocols out there: SNMP.

Since the beginning we’ve focused on monitoring performance, tuning our monitoring engine and our data storage technology to eek out the best gains possible, allowing you to monitor more systems with fewer resources. It’s those efforts that have helped us to deploy massive installs monitoring thousands of systems from a single FrameFlow installation.

Today we’re happy to show you how, in v2017.1, we’ve achieved some impressive improvements. Let’s take a look.
