    IBM InfoSphere Information Server The trigger in the pattern Services_tier in IBM Information Server module was changed to be based on existence of IBM WebSphere Application Server SI which has server_name, node_name, cell_name and profile_dir attributes set. The goal was to improve efficiency by preventing the pattern from triggering on every IBM WebSphere Application server process Y

    IBM InfoSphere Information Server

    QM001687882 Microsoft SQL Server Introduced a more flexible method of mapping full product version to marketing version (product_version attribute) in this enhancement. N

    Microsoft SQL Server

    Microsoft SQL Server Registry queries to obtain configuration information from Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 added to the pattern N

    Microsoft SQL Server

    QM001682743 Microsoft SQL Server Pattern enhanced with code which determines if the database server is listening on a specific IP address and stores this information as an SI attribute so that it can be used by patterns performing SQL queries against MS SQL Server instances. N

    Microsoft SQL Server

    IBM POWER Hardware The pattern compatible with ADDM 8.2.x has had its HostContainer key, name and type attributes updated to reflect the change in naming of IBM systems from 'System p' to 'POWER'. Furthermore, the pattern now also supports partitions moving from one host container to another by ensuring that the LPAR host is related to only one HostContainer node on every scan. Y
