MonitorWare Agent 1.2 Beta 1 Released
Adiscon today announced the immediate availability of MonitorWare Agent
1.2 Beta 1. This version has a new powerful Filter-Engine which
allows you to build very complex Filters like known from Microsoft Network
Monitor. For more details see below.
New Scaleable Filterengine -The new filter engine as very powerful, you
can build complex filter conditions like known from Microsoft Network Monitor.
A note for existing MonitorWare Agent Users. After update, you have to
start the MWAgent Client first. This is important, because it will
automatically import your existing filters into the new Filter system.
If you are new to this kind of filtering, I recommend that you read the Filter
Conditions part of the manual before you start to play
with the filters.
Call RuleSet Action - this Action is used to call another RuleSet for
Set Status Action - Used to set an internal status variable. Can be used
together with the Status Filter. The manual will contain more information about
the Status Engine in future.
- You can Add Comments under Services, RuleSets, Rules and Actions now. This is
useful if you want to write done some notes.
New Import / Export functions
- It is now possible to Import or Export the registry settings by using a
Import / Export RuleSets
- You can Import / Export complete RuleSets into a XML Based format (Right
click a RuleSet). This can be very useful if you want to duplicate RuleSets for
example. The Client uses its own file extension here (.mwx = MontorWare XML)
which is also bound to the Client. That means double-clicking such a File will
automatically invoke the Client to import the RuleSet.
- Enhanced the message handling (RFC 3164) to also accept not valid RFC Syslog
Event Log Monitor - Added new option for the legacy format:
Added a button to configure for Monilog as well.
File Logging Action enhanced
- There is a new option "Use circular logging" available. You can specify a
number of logfiles and a maximum file size for circular logging.
Database Logging Action enhanced
- You can now use the new function "Create Database" to create a MonitorWare
Agent valid database.
MW Agent Client enhancements - All fields which specifies
seconds are replaced with a Combobox with predefined time values. It is also
possible to configure custom values.
