Release notes for Enterprise Monitoring Point version 13.4.0.

Enhancements

  • Customer Premises Equipment 40 (cpe40) Monitoring Point now available - The Customer Premises Equipment 40 (cpe40) is a new Container-based Monitoring Point (CMP) that runs on the Cisco Catalyst 9300 and 9400 switches. It allows you to monitor your network from locations where you have a Catalyst 9300 or 9400 deployed without requiring additional hardware.
  • Container-based Monitoring Points (CMPs) using Docker Compose now inherit host time zone settings—To keep the time zone on the CMP in sync with its host, the Docker Compose-based CMPs now inherit the time zone set on the host at install time. The time zone can be changed using the setup.sh script. For existing installations, the time zone is unaffected when this release is installed. If you want an existing installation to inherit time zone settings from the host, you’ll need to recreate the CMP.
