RealOpInsight Ultimate 2018r1

April 22nd, 2018. After a couple of weeks in beta stage, a few number of bugs have been reported and are now fixed. Therefore we are pleased to announce the immediate availabilty of RealOpInsight Ultimate 2018r1 stable release.

New Features
  • Web Editor: added feature to import Zabbix IT services as native RealOpInsight service view.
  • Web Editor: added feature to import Nagios BPI configuration as native RealOpInsight service view.
  • Dashboard Map: colored area around each map node does no longer cover all the label text, but is now limited to small bouding square around the node icon. This provides a more concise visualization for dense servcie trees.
  • Dashboard Map: long labels are now truncated to 20 characters when displayed, while be fully available in tooltips. This also intends to provide a more concise visualization for dense servcie trees.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed issue #12: when Nagios BPI imported file is incorrect and causes crash RealOpInsight’s crash.
  • Fixed installation script when permissions on default database where not set properly.

As usual, downloads are available as binary package, Docker image, and OVA virtual machine image.

RealOpInsight Ultimate 2018r1_beta1

April 8th, 2018. After months of intensive work, RealOpInsight Team is excited and pleased to announce a new major release of RealOpInsight Ultimate. This release, version 2018r1_beta1 and named Galacia, is announced in beta mode for new features and should not suffer from any regressions regarding previous features.

This is a major shift in our product portfolio.

As you can find in the improvement list below, RealOpInsight Ultimate now includes a built-in Web Editor. This was a recurrent request from users to further improve user experience. The consequence of this enhancement is that, RealOpInsight Workstation becomes less relevant. Hence we’ve decided to abandon it. This means that no further updates nor bug fixes are expected to be published, but all the releases published previously will be left available for downloads through our SourceForge archives.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of improvements brought by this release:

New concentric map layout
This is now the default map layout as alternative to the existing tree-based layout. This new layout comes to provide a more compact and efficient representation for large service trees. It’s possible to swicth back to the traditional tree-based layout through configuration settings.
Advanced Database Backend (PostgreSQL)
As alternative to SQLite3 database backend, RealOpInsight Ultimate now supports PostgreSQL database. PostgreSQL provides a higher performance and more robutness than the traditional SQLite3 backend.
Compact (non-expanded) representation of external service dependencies
External service nodes are no longer expanded in the dashboard (neither in the tree, nor on the map), instead each external service node is now handled as an external reference whose the status of the associated external service is updated internally by RealOpInsight Collectord.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed issue #1 when Collectord fail to add QoS entry. This is related to SQLite3 database backend that doesn’t effectively handle concurrent accesses to the database. Need to use an advanced database backend as PostgreSQL currently supported.
  • Fixed issue #8 when the web portal keeps as loading while an internal error occurred (e.g. due to database connection failure). A message is now displayed in the browser.
  • Fixed issue #9 when the show only issues check box won’t work.
Miscellaneous
Like for most of software, there were also a huge amount of ungrateful work on internal code and algorithms that make the software better but are not perceptible for end-users. We want thank all our developers for their efforts.

We finally want to thank our users (and especially to Jan from Slovakia) for their feedback, and hope that this new release will make your monitoring life ever better.
