September 23nd, 2014. We are very excited to announce RealOpInsight Workstation version 3.1.0 and RealOpInsight Ultimate 2014b5. Codenamed Diegom, these major releases focus on improving event aggregation and correlation in the core framework with new rules and algorithms to propagate and calculate the severities of services in a more flexible and fined-grained way. Completed details about changes are listed below.
- Added support weighting services. Weighting enables you to associate a weight factor with a service. The weight factor can be any real number between
max=10, determining how important the service is to its parent service compared to other sibling services. With this, you can for example deal with situations such as, essential services (i.e. services required for your business services), neutral services (i.e. services without any impact on your business services), etc. Read more.
- Modified Average Calculation Rule to support weighting. As services now support weigthing, the average calculation rule algorithm has been modified to take into account the weights of direct subservices when calculating the status of a service. Read more.
- Added Thresholds-based Severity Escalation Rule. Extending the weighted average calculation rule, this adds the ability to escalate the severity status of a service when given thresholds of similar events are reached. For example, you may want to escalate the severity status of service from Major to Critical if more than 50% of its direct subservices are in Major state. Read more.
- Included all changes carried out on the core framework.
- Added the ability to set the application language via preference settings.
- Added the ability to make the compilation of ngrt4nd optional. This removes the requirement on ZeroMQ which is not natively available on some versions of Red Hat-based operating systems (e.g. Red Hat/CentOS 6).
- Improved tooltips adding new information related to weighting and thresholds.
