Week of September 21, 2020 (EMP 12.8.0)

Release notes for Enterprise Monitoring Point version 12.8.0.


  • Simplified Windows installation—We have enhanced the installer to make installing the Windows Native Monitoring Point (NMP) easier for Work-From-Home users. Enhancements include fewer steps and automatically updating Windows Firewall rules. We have also included options that enable automated installation to remote users.
  • Improved Server Reachability page—We’ve made a number of enhancements to the Server Reachability page on the Web Admin interface to assist with troubleshooting server reachability issues. The enhancements include:
    • “Check” buttons have been added to initiate reachability checks of individual servers.
    • A “Last Check” column has been added to show the last time each server’s reachability was checked.
    • The reachability status can now be expanded to reveal debug information.
    • A “Copy to Clipboard” button is available to copy debug information to the clipboard.
  • Updated core capabilities on Windows NMP—We have updated the Windows NMP to include additional capabilities currently available on other EMPs. These include:
    • The addition of UDP traceroute support (previously, only ICMP traceroute was supported).
    • The ability to specify custom UDP and TCP port numbers for Continuous Path Monitoring (CPA) (previously, default source port numbers were used).
    • The return path for diagnostics on dual-ended paths can now be specified. This enables you to use non-default interfaces on the source and/or target for diagnostics testing.
    • The security protocol on the connection to AppNeta Performance Manager has been updated. This connection now uses TLS 1.2.
