What's New in FrameFlow v2023.6?

FrameFlow v2023.6 is now out and contains updates and bug fixes for existing features, including the Current Status dashboard panel, the Registry Event Monitor, the Azure Service Health Event Monitor, and much more. Read on to learn what's changed.

New Styles for the Current Status Dashboard Panel

FrameFlow v2023.6 also contains new additions to our Current Status dashboard panel. Previously, this panel had only one display style (Status Tiles). Now, you can choose between the three display styles below:

Examples of Each Status Style

Though the above examples display the same data, you can filter the data that's displayed by network device and event monitor using the panel's settings to show only a specific section of data in your dashboards. Sections of the display that are large enough will automatically have a label, like the warning and error alerts in the status panels above. For smaller sections, hover over them to view their labels.

Registry Event Monitor Updates

In FrameFlow v2023.6, we added the ability to the Registry Event Monitor to search for partial numeric matches. Previously, this option did not exist for the "DWORD" value type and only existed if a user chose the "string" value type. This option lets you enter a string or partial string of numbers into the text box provided and will send you an alert if a match is detected. The inverse option also exists and with it, you will be alerted if the event monitor does not detect a match with the string you enter.

New "DWORD" Options

New Azure Service Health Data Points

FrameFlow's new Microsoft Azure Service Health Event Monitor previously didn't generate data points. Now, it generates three: Global Service Issues, Resource Health Issues, and Security Advisories. The Global Service Issues data point represents the number of Azure service issues detected by the event monitor. The Resource Health Issues data point counts the number of health issues detected with your Azure resources. The Security Advisories data point is a measure of the number of security advisories your event monitor has detected.

New Data Points for Windows and Linux Inventory Event Monitors

The Windows Inventory Event Monitor and the Linux Inventory Event Monitor each have two new data points: OS Kind and OS Number. Now, using a Data Point List dashboard panel, you can keep a list of the OS version and type of each Windows or Linux device available for easy viewing on company-wide or personal dashboards. This helps you figure out at a glance what version of Windows or Linux each device is running, allowing you to readily detect when a device needs to be updated.

Remote Node Monitoring Updates

A feature that's always been available on your local sites is now available remotely as well. The gear icon on each event monitor that spins while the event monitor runs and stops when it's done updating is now available for event monitors watching your remote nodes. Now, the gear will spin while your remote nodes are being checked and finish when they're done, with some lag, of course, as remote nodes call home by default every 15 seconds.
