SolarWinds RMM: Major Update to Network Devices, New Mac GA Agent

We’re very pleased to announce that the Network Devices module in SolarWinds RMM has been significantly updated. Based on your feedback, we’ve made the following changes:

  • RMM now has the ability to discover the Manufacturer, Model, Firmware Version and Serial Number of HP ProCurve switches. From a monitoring perspective, RMM now automatically monitors the following aspects of those switches:
    • CPU
    • Memory
    • Hardware Sensors
    • Network Ports
  • RMM has also gained the ability to automatically add new checks to already-managed devices. As we release additional monitoring templates, they will be automatically added to the appropriate devices.

This release also includes several bug fixes:

  • An issue that was causing the Networks tab to load very slowly (particularly in the EU and the UK) has been resolved.
  • An issue that was preventing checks from being auto-applied has been resolved.
  • An issue where RMM wasn’t updating the Default Gateway of networks has been resolved.
  • An issue where attempting to rename a network device generated an “Unexpected Error” message has been resolved.

We will continue to update the Network Devices module – look for upcoming releases, in the near future, that continue to make this module all the more essential to your business.
