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.
Have been working on AggreGate Network Manager for several months, we've made a lot of modifications and improvements along with totally new features --- many big, important, and really interesting ones. Should we say we have a new AggreGate Network Manager now? Looks like that.
Anyway we are currently (re-)documenting AggreGate Network Manager… and an idea emerged: why not to post some of its fresh and hot snippets here? We don’t see any impediments so far! And so here we go… starting with the Network Manager overview.
