Coming Soon: v2017.1We are in the final stages of testing what will become v2017.1 and are currently targeting a release in fourth week of May. If you’ve been following our newsletter and blog posts then you already know that this is going to be a huge update.
Since our last newsletter we’ve been busy adding more great features and functionality and today we can share even more with you.
New Dependency OptionsFor ages now you’ve been able to set one of your event monitors to depend on other event monitors. There are many different scenarios where this is handy but the most common one is where you have systems that are being checked by both high level event monitors and low level ones too.
As an example, it’s probably futile to check the status of a SQL Server database if the box is down and not responding to your ping checks. Using dependencies you can reduce the number of alerts that are generated for critical situations and focus on the real problem at hand.
These dependencies were defined between event monitors but FrameFlow v2017.1 will add device-to-device dependencies. This makes it super easy to handle conditions like where you have a bunch of systems that are behind a switch and therefore are dependent on that switch.
