GFI MAX RemoteManagement – Dashboard v5.38 and Agent v9.2.1 RC – Remote Process Control and more

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Dashboard v5.38 and Agent v9.2.1 are being made available on Release Candidate overnight, so that they will be available in advance of the working day tomorrow, Friday 18th October. Combined, these releases bring Remote Process Control, the second Remote Background Management function, which enables you to:

  • View running processes, CPU utilisation and memory usage
  • Sort and filter on name, PID, user, CPU, Memory etc
  • View full process details (paths etc)
  • End process (and tree)
  • Search for details
  • Refreshes 5 secs

Remote Process Control can be enabled from Settings Menu, Remote Background and is included in the single charge for Remote Background Management (i.e. one charge for Remote Command Line and Remote Process Control).

These releases also include alert suppression (consecutive failure threshold) for SNMP Checks and Script Checks (to eliminate false positive alerts due to SNMP Timeouts etc) and automatic updating of MAV definitions before AV Update check fails or on-demand from Dashboard (note that this happens on next 24×7 cycle – it will be updated to use the persistent connection shortly).

Full release notes are below.

Mark.
