Product: OP5 Monitor
Release Number: 7.3.7
Release Date: February 9, 2017
Release Type: Micro
Previous Release: 7.3.6
- A restart of a non-poller node no longer displays the debug message "poller-fix: We're not a poller, so not fixing object config"
- Improvements for clustered OP5 Monitor installations:
- All nodes in an OP5 Monitor cluster can now show last notification time for objects. previously, nodes not responsible for sending notifications would display "N/A" instead of the last notification time.
- Rrdcached is now started automatically after upgrade
- In an OP5 Monitor cluster, master nodes that notifies instead of a poller no longer wait for a check result to be sent to fellow nodes before the notification data is sent to them. This minimizes the amount of error messages logged by the application.
- In systems where a master node is configured to send notifications on behalf of a poller, it is now possible to include the plugin long output in the notification message.
- Fixed a problem that caused Merlin to not start writing a binary log of state changes when it loses contact with another node. The problem was caused by /var/lib/merlin/binlogs not existing or having wrong permissions.
- The about box now displays which OP5 Monitor license customers have installed (requires system_information access).
- Improvements in the Red Hat 7 / CentOS 7 beta release:
- Logger is now using Rsyslog (which is the default logger daemon on RHEL/CentOS 7 systems) instead of Syslog-ng.
- If you are running logger with custom rules for syslog-ng, you can start to prepare to update them so that you can transition to use rsyslog in the EL7 release of Monitor. If you are using EL6 and would like to run rsyslog you will have to update to the EL7 version of Monitor.
- op5config, our web-based system configuration utility, has been removed from EL7 installations due to compatibility issues.
We have made a new beta-version of OP5 Monitor for RHEL/CentOS 7 available as a virtual machine image, to give our customers a chance to test their own configuration and integrations as soon as possible and report any local problems found. To update the existing beta-version, just run yum update.
