OneImporter

  • Bug fixes in the Dynatrace OneImporter.

Version 2020-12

Core platform

  • We are very proud that the new Topology Detection & Research service is available in version 1.0. All previous topology services are thus obsolete and are no longer supported. Customers should store appropriate topology configurations in Topology Services (e.g. based on Management Zones or applications from Dynatrace).
  • Data analysis supports the topology filter.

  • Business Process & Batch Job Monitoring for the process mining are now event driven (previously time driven). This means that the process model is updated by the process information immediately after a change is detected.
  • The cost allocation models can now be created and edited directly in the environment settings of the Versio.io user interface.
  • Usability and performance improvements and some minor bug fixes.

OneImporter

  • Optimization of the Dynatrace importer for the correct display of the temporal topology view:
    • Host and process instances are marked as deleted if the availability status is 'UNAVAILABLE', 'UNMONITORED' or 'UNKNOWN'.
    • Problems are marked as deleted after they reach the status 'CLOSED'.
  • The logging size of the OneImporter was locally limited to 1 GByte.

Version 2020-11

Core platform

  • In the Operation Diary, filtering by topology is now supported (e.g. application, management zone, etc.).
  • The full text search has been completely reimplemented as a separate microservice to ensure high-performance searches even with a rapidly increasing number of instances and changes in the Versio.io environments.
  • The time engine for data analysis over time has been graphically redesigned in the data and topology analysis to motivate user usage.
  • The instance and change viewer has been enhanced with the following functions:
    • Search for attribute names and values
    • Expand all inclusive list
    • Save the raw data in JSON format on the operating system clipboard.
  • The design of the email notification for Versio.io events has been optimised.
  • When querying records via API, the current server time is always returned in Unix format.
  • Governance & Compliance
  • The Governance & Compliance verification results now include a direct link to related events to map a consistent user flow.
  • The calculation for the processing time of Governance & Compliance verification has been corrected.

OneImporter

  • The OneImporter now has a unique version number. This can be displayed in the web interface under Environment settings -> OneImporter -> Instances -> Details.

Core platform

  • First basic version of the component for automated topology recognition is now introduced. ⇾ With this service we mark a new milestone for the Versio.io platform. Be curious!
  • Added topology filter functionality in instance viewer.
    • Dynatrace management-zone topology

Core platform

  • The dashboard now shows the total number of instances and changes.
  • In inventory analysis report configurations can now be saved and shared with other users.
  • The filter function in operation diary has been revised with regard to stability.
  • Events that have occurred are also displayed directly in the instance history viewer at the change.
  • The number of topology elements in the instance history viewer has been reduced to optimize usability and performance.
  • For each OneImporter, the overview now also shows the data of the OneImporter execution environment and the process ID for a better overview.

OneImporter

  • The OneImporter CPU and memory footprint have been drastically optimized so that a minimal impact is felt on the running computer (0.5% CPU usage, 200 MB RAM).
  • In the SSL certificate importer you can now specify time thresholds for the validity of the SSL certificate. The result is a boolean value. This simplifies rule-based verification.
