See Service for AppNeta Performance Manager system status and upgrade schedule information.

Enhancements

  • New dashboard functionality!—We have made significant enhancements to the dashboard functionality by adding two new dashboard types and providing the ability to manage the list of dashboards. We are currently working to enhance these changes and will be introducing additional dashboards in future releases.
    The new dashboard types available on the AppNeta Performance Manager landing page include:
    • Current Network Violation Map - This dashboard provides a geographical view of your network status. It includes the powerful network path filtering that’s also available on the Network Paths page.
    • Web App Performance - This dashboard provides the status of selected web app groups over time (up to 30 days).
  • Enhancements to dashboard management include:
    • the ability to create and name dashboards of a given type.
    • the ability to delete dashboards.
    • the ability to manage the dashboards list by specifying a “home” dashboard and moving a dashboard to the top of the list.
    • the ability to share a link to a dashboard.
  • Group network paths by ISP—We have updated the Network Paths page by providing the ability to group network paths by Internet Service Provider (ISP). This grouping enables you to compare paths on the various ISPs they traverse in order to help detect connectivity or performance issues related to a particular ISP.

Changes to be aware of

  • Monitoring Point hostname change behavior has changed—Previously, when a Monitoring Point’s hostname changed, it’s Monitoring Point name used by APM would change as well - to keep the two names in sync. This is still true except in the cases where the Monitoring Point name has been manually changed in APM. In these cases, if the hostname is changed, it no longer affects its Monitoring Point name in APM.
