OP5 HIGHLIGHTS


Hybrid IT environments

Many of our customers have started to incorporate cloud into their IT estate. This is a natural evolution, and OP5 Monitor shall continue to be a best-in-class monitoring tool for networks and on-premise environments, while evolving to support dynamic environments. We call the mix between traditional IT and dynamic environments the Hybrid IT. We have already started the work of supporting Hybrid IT environments with these new items

We have created the Slim Poller, a containerised lightweight version of OP5 Monitor poller configuration. This was especially designed to enable the OP5 Monitor poller to run as a container in environments such as OpenShift and Kubernetes. Slim Poller supports autoscaling in Kubernetes, can be set up automatically with environment variables, and can auto-register with the cluster
We have created a plugin specifically for monitoring Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources. The plugin allows for this by accessing the AWS native cloud monitoring called CloudWatch
We have created a plugin for monitoring of Kubernetes cluster components such as deployments (replicas), nodes, and pods
We have the latest version of OP5 Monitor available in AWS and Azure Marketplace for easy deployment in the cloud
The check_vmware_v2 plugin replaces the check_vmware_api plugin to bring extended capabilities for monitoring VMware networks

Security hardening

IT security is imperative for most organisations today, and with OP5 Monitor we take security seriously. We have been working on a number of items that will make OP5 Monitor even more secure

Communications between masters, peers, and pollers through the Merlin protocol can now be secured with public key encryption
We have introduced ModSecurity, which is a web application firewall. The main reason is to prevent potential cross-scripting attacks in OP5 Monitor
We have removed the need for root user privileges. You can now use sudo to run mon commands such as start, stop, restart, and node status
We continuously scan our components for potential vulnerabilities

Enhanced Autodiscovery

Autodiscovery has been enhanced to make it even easier to find new hosts in your OP5 Monitor network

Schedule your Autodiscovery jobs to run on specific days and times
Assign host groups or templates immediately to discovered hosts from the View discoveries tab, before you import them
See discovered hosts from the main OP5 Monitor page via a notification banner
Add hosts to an exclusion list to keep them from reappearing in your discovery results
