To Affinity and Beyond in v15.11.02

We are excited to announce general availability of Device42 v15.11.02 with the following changes:

Enhanced affinity groups, now with application component service connections

In the prior release, Affinity Groups was enhanced with the ability to display application components.  This release further expands on these capabilities, and along with all services within a given application component, you can see all relevant connections to those services [e.g. you can now see client devices connecting to the Apache HTTP server instance, blue square]:

SNMP enhancements

This release adds SNMP discovery support for some new hardware, as well as a brand new SNMP discovery feature – users may now choose to ignore target devices by specifying the operating systems to ignore, seperating each with a comma:

The following hardware is supported in v15.11.02:

  • Cumulus switches
  • HP 1810 Switches
  • APC Symmetra support
  • Arista switches, support for IPv6 addresses

Wondering if your hardware is supported? Look for your hardware vendor on our “Vendors supported by SNMP Auto-discovery” page, and if we don’t happen to support a device you’d like to see supported, send a note (preferably with an SNMPwalk) to support@device42.com.
