IMPROVED! Map filters
The topology map is a key illustration of how your clients’ networks are configured and connected at Layers 1 through 3.
In large-scale deployments, including multi-site configurations, there can be a lot of connections spanning large distances across the map, such as purple wires indicating VPN connections across sites. When you’re examining a specific area of the topology, you may want to maximize real estate and temporarily hide certain connection types.
Now you can. With our new map filters, you can choose to show or hide Layer 1 connections (solid and dotted blue lines), Layer 3 connections (solid and dotted black lines), and VPN connections (solid purple).
You can show and hide wires with the visibility icons found in Map Filters. Or, you can build connection filters into your filter definitions. By using the definitions option, you can build quick filters for one-click access.
IMPROVED! Discovery troubleshooting
The Discovery Troubleshooting view allows you to figure out why Auvik may not be getting a complete set of data from your devices. To know how to communicate with different device CLIs, your Auvik collector depends on the identification information obtained with SNMP.
We’ve now made it clearer within the troubleshooting view when a device has CLI enabled but doesn’t have a primary data source like SNMP enabled. Now, the troubleshooter prompts you to enable SNMP.
CHANGED! Billable devices
We’re all about making network monitoring and management as simple as possible—and that includes Auvik’s pricing. Packet processors and load balancers used to be billable devices in Auvik, but we’ve now moved them to the list of devices we monitor for free.
Yes, from now on, you won’t be billed for monitoring and managing packet processors and load balancers. That leaves just four device types Auvik bills for: routers, switches, firewalls, and Wi-Fi controllers. Simple!
