And with that... Welcome to tonight's release.

Enterprise Agents

As noted in our March 2 release update, we are ending support for Virtual Appliances running on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (“Precise”).  We’ve added a feature that will prevent any new Virtual Appliances from registering in the ThousandEyes platform if running Precise.  If a Precise-based Virtual Appliance attempts to register, the Agent's log will display the a message similar to:  

2017-03-13 19:45:00.761 FATAL [b6adc740] [te] {} The agent's operating system is no longer supported. Please contact support@thousandeyes.com for assistance.

For more information, see our end-of-life announcement.

Voice Layer tests

With the upcoming release of SIP and Voice call testing, we’ve renamed the “Full Call” test type to “Voice Call”.

Enhancements

  • A change of wording: the “Both Directions” selection of the Path Trace Alert Rule’s Direction will now be called “Either Direction”, which better describes the functionality.
  • Added an “Enabled tests” filter in the Current Test selector of the Views.  Click this filter to show only enabled tests, which will filter out Saved Events.
  • Prefixes will now be sorted in the BGP View by both prefix and prefix length.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue in certain accounts, in which creating a DNS Server test failed with an internal error
  • When creating an Agent to Agent test with Enable Throughput checked, the position of the Duration slider for the throughput did not match the numeric value displayed beside the slider.
  • When creating a multi-metric table widget for Endpoint Agent metrics, the Filter now displays Endpoint Agent-specific filter selections
  • Fixed a bug that appeared in some cases of adding an Enterprise Agent Status widget to a Dashboard, which caused the progress indicator to spin indefinitely.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a location to be duplicated in an Endpoint Agent report if the Group By selector was set to "Locations".
  • Fixed an issue with Agent to Agent tests that could cause the Utilization for the Agent to Agent queue to reach 100%.
  • The Enterprise Agent installation script now works without modification on the workstation version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, provided appropriate prerequisites are available.
