DELL EMC UNITY VMWARE DATASTORE V2 The new Dell EMC Unity VMware Datastore v2 BETA sensor monitors a VMware datastore on your Dell EMC Unity storage system. With this sensor type, you can keep track of the free size of a VMware datastore on your Dell EMC storage, as well as you will always see the number of hosts, virtual machines, and virtual drives at a glance.
MICROSOFT AZURE VIRTUAL MACHINE The new Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine BETA sensor monitors the status of a virtual machine in a Microsoft Azure subscription. Additionally to the overall status of a virtual machine, you can also monitor CPU usage as well as used and remaining CPU credits with this sensor. This will help you to act before your credits run out and the virtual machine stops.
MODBUS TCP CUSTOM The new Modbus TCP Custom BETA sensor monitors values that your Modbus TCP server returns. With this new sensor type, you can keep an eye on your environment equipment like cooling units, power supply, backup generators, and temperature. This helps you to ensure your infrastructure always runs at its best.
OPC UA SERVER STATUS The new OPC UA Server Status BETA sensor monitors status, uptime, and diagnostic information of your OPC UA server. With this new sensor type you can ensure your devices are available using OPC UA and your production processes run flawlessly.
In this version, you can also try out an experimental OPC UA Custom sensor that you can manually enable. The sensor monitors multiple nodes of OPC UA servers and returns the contained values.
SOFFICO ORCHESTRA CHANNEL HEALTH
The new Soffico Orchestra Channel Health BETA sensor monitors the availability of the Soffico Orchestra API and shows the status and overall number of successful and failed channel calls.
CLOUD HTTP V2 The Cloud HTTP v2 BETA sensor now supports Smart URL Replacement like other HTTP sensors. With this functionality, you can easier define custom URLs that you want to monitor with this sensor type.
EXCHANGE (POWERSHELL) SENSORS You can now monitor Exchange Server 2019 with all Exchange (PowerShell) sensors. The sensor types support all Exchange server versions as of 2010.
Exchange Backup (PowerShell)
Exchange Database DAG (PowerShell)
Exchange Database (PowerShell)
Exchange Mailbox (PowerShell)
Exchange Mail Queue (PowerShell)
Exchange Public Folder (PowerShell)
SNMP CISCO ASA VPN CONNECTIONS We improved the error handling of the SNMP Cisco ASA VPN Connections sensor. In cases where the requested OID of a channel is missing on the target device, the OID is now shown in the sensor message with according information and the sensor keeps its status. In previous versions, the sensor showed a down status with the error message "No such object" (SNMP error # 222) in such cases even if other channels were able to retrieve data.
SNMP CISCO ASA VPN TRAFFIC We added the option to monitor VPN connections that work with IKEv2 tunnels to the SNMP Cisco ASA VPN Traffic sensor. You can choose the new IKEv1 and IKEv2 option in the IKE Version Handling section of the sensor settings in this case.
Note: This option is in beta status and might not work properly in every case.
MICROSOFT 365 SERVICE STATUS Degraded services in the Microsoft 365 Service Status BETA sensor now result in a warning status instead of down by default. This change also corresponds to the status definition of degraded services in the Microsoft 365 Service Status Advanced BETA sensor, where degraded services were always defined as warning status.
NOTIFICATION TEMPLATES We improved the content of the History tab for notification templates. The history of a notification template now only shows one entry per creation or modification and only the settings that were actually changed. The entries have a clearer wording aligned to other places in the web interface and referenced objects are written with both their name and ID. This will help you with tracking the creation and changes of a specific notification template.
NOTIFICATION TRIGGERS You can now define if you want to inherit notification triggers from parent objects for new sensor types. Several sensor types that we added over the last few PRTG versions were missing the inherit option on their Notification Triggers tab and showed the message (Property not found) instead.
LIBRARIES We slightly improved the performance of libraries by changing the approach of how libraries are calculated to event-based instead of doing regular polling. You will especially benefit from this improvement if you have libraries with a high amount of sensors.
SENSOR MESSAGES Sensors now keep their messages even if you change a channel setting like limits or spike filter that causes a recalculation. In older PRTG versions, the current sensor message disappeared after such a change.
SENSOR STATISTICS Sensors now show a calculated value for uptime, downtime, and coverage in the general information section on a sensor's overview tab even if they never left the down status but receive values. This can be the case if limits are breached or lookup values cause the down status directly upon sensor creation. In older PRTG versions, sensors showed N/A for uptime, downtime, and coverage in such cases.
API We fixed an inconsistency that appeared in the results of the column groupnum in getobjectstatus.htm API calls in certain cases. Depending on your device tree structure, the call sometimes returned incorrect values for the number of groups.
As of this version, groupnum always returns the correct number of subgroups if you perform the call for a specific group, and the number of all groups plus one for root if you perform the call for root (id=0) just as shown on the system status page.
SYSTEM INFORMATION The column headers of tables on System Information pages are correctly displayed again.
LANGUAGE FILES We updated the German and Japanese language files.
