We've celebrated 11.11.11 by publishing a long-awaited AggreGate v4.5. This is a major release that includes official production versions of failover and distributed architecture modules, along with important performance and memory usage optimizations.
The trial version of AggreGate 4.5 is available in the downloads section. Give it a try!
We've joined AggreGate Server and AggreGate Client into one installation bundle. If you need to manage your server from the same machine it's running on, you don't need to complete two installation procedures anymore. And of course, AggreGate Client is still available as a separate bundle.
We've designed and implemented a new SNMP polling algorithm that helps to greatly decrease device synchronization time.
When adding an SNMP device account, this algorithm quickly detects MIBs the device supports and allows operator to select ones to be monitored. After that, only OIDs defined in the selected MIBs will be polled.
However, if you want to obtain all SNMP variables provided by device, you always fall back to original SNMP walk method.
Our public demo server was updated several days ago. It now has 25+ diverse hardware devices connected via different protocols. We use this server for personal demos, however, everyone may connect and check basic functionality available under non-admin accounts.
After a month of intensive development, we're presenting AggreGate v4.41. It finally provides support for grouping device settings, operations and events. This feature greatly simplifies servicing devices that have thousands of settings, such as SNMP-enabled routers, BACnet controllers, Java application servers (JMX device driver), etc.
The new release delivers over 200 improvements and fixes for AggreGate core and different modules, so we suggest to upgrade your installation.
AggreGate can now communicate with BACnet devices via BACnet/IP. The new BACnet driver allows reading/writing properties of any device object, including propietary properties. Subscribing to COV notifications is also supported.
