Micro Focus is excited to announce the releases of Diagnostics and Real User Monitoring (RUM), version 9.50. These releases continue to strengthen both products’ rich feature set and technology support—while focusing on enhanced monitoring and improved triaging and issue isolation.
Arguably, the most exciting feature in the Diagnostics 9.50 release is the addition of Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) support. With this capability, users can make Diagnostics server and Java agents as part of the PCF Virtual Machines, so applications running on those machines can be monitored. The digital transformation has enabled enterprises to move many of their applications to the cloud; while for many SMBs leveraging the cloud computing and infrastructure potential is the way to do/stay in business. So the ability to have Diagnostics agents on VMs provides a simple way for users to drill down to the code level root cause of their of application performance issues. The implementation is actually very simple- Diagnostics is installed on one VM and is cloned automatically to the other VMs—making it very easy to scale up the diagnostic servers.
We have extended the Java Web Start (JWS) solution to complement our other monitoring solutions- Business Process Monitoring (BPM) and Real User Monitoring. JWS is an applet-free user interface that gives users the ability to use end-to-end Diagnostics functionality without a browser. Now BPM and RUM customers can visualize, monitor and troubleshoot concurrent requests of a transaction.
We listen to our customers and strive to improve their operations. With this release, we have introduced several customer enhancements, such as the ability to monitor applications that are running on RHEL 7.4 and GlassFish 5.0 app-server and the possibility to run .Net profiler on Internet Explorer 11.
In RUM 9.50 we introduce support for several protocols, including:
- SSDB and BANCS protocols to allow finance industry customers to monitor financial applications that are using these protocols
- iOS 11 support to monitor apps running on iOS 11
- Kotlin and Swift support for all the applications developed using Kotlin or Swift programming languages
