This topic describes the key enhancements in PATROL for Linux version 1.2.00.
Pictorial representation of Linux 1.2.00 enhancements
Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) auto remote monitoring
This feature enables you to configure OS monitoring for guests that are discovered beneath the KVM. It allows filtering of unnecessary guest virtual machines from monitoring. For information about configuring and filtering guest virtual machines, see Configuring Linux Virtualization for Auto-Guest monitoring.
Support Kernel-based Virtual Machine monitoring on SUSE Linux
PATROL for Linux now supports kernel-based virtual machine monitoring on SUSE Linux 12.x.
Power Linux (PPC64le) support for local and remote monitoring
PATROL for Linux now supports local monitoring of Linux operating system running on PPC64le. The KM also allows you to remotely monitor your Linux environments from the PPC64le. For a list of attribute see, Partition Metrics (NUK_PARTITION_METRICS) monitor type.
Ability to remotely monitor a large number of hosts
To use the same configuration to monitor a large number of hosts with the same credentials, you can configure the remote hosts from a file. The file must contain a list of comma separated hostnames, IP addresses or published host names that have common credentials. The Configuration Status parameter indicates errors related to the input file. For more information, see Configuring Remote Monitoring.
Merged PATROL for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization KM into the PATROL for Linux KM
The PATROL for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization KM is now a part of the PATROL for Linux KM version 1.2.00. For information about upgrading the KM, see Upgrading.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6 support
PATROL for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization now supports Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager version 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6. For a list of suuported RHEV versions, see PATROL for Linux system requirements.
Simplified basic monitoring
Linux servers can now be monitored using minimum configuration. Enter the hostname or the file path with valid credentials to start basic monitoring of CPU, memory, network and filesystem. For more information, see Configuring after installation.
- Addition of remote hosts and custom monitor types from a single TrueSight console
- Configurable SSH port. By default, the port number is set to 22
- For remote hosts configuration through the TrueSight console, the newly added $USERNAME default value connects to the remote host using the PATROL Agent default account credentials.
