This section contains information about enhancements in version 9.0.20 of the BMC PATROL for Web URL product.

What's new

Support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol 

The KM now supports version 1.2 of Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol, providing better privacy and data integrity between the client and server applications.

Support monitoring of URLs that require a Client Certificate 

The KM now supports monitoring of URLs that require Client Certificates by importing the Java key store database file (known as the .jks file) into the KM. When you configure the URLs to be monitored that require a client certificate, those client certificates should be already imported into the .jks file so it can be used while communicating with the URLs. An authorization error will occur if the required certificates are not found in the .jks database file. 

The Java key store database file must be accessible from the host where the PATROL Agent is running. BMC PATROL default account must have read permission on the directory where the .jks file is located. For information about how to import the Java key store database file in the KM, see Configuring Web URL monitoring.

 For more information about Java key store file, please refer Oracle documentation

Added Timeout and Poll interval options in the file based policy configuration

The text file used for file based policy configuration (located at %PATROL_HOME%\WUM\Conf\ImportInstances\ImportInstances.txt) now contains timeout and poll interval options along with label and instance name. The updated file is available in the following format, 

Instance name | Web URL | Poll interval | Timeout


Instance name is the name of the Web URL. This name is displayed on folders, graphs, lists, etc.

Web URL is the URL that you want to monitor 

Poll interval is the time interval between two consecutive statistical data polls

Timeout is the time-out period for each poll of statistical data

Support for custom Java Runtime Environment (JRE) location

You can specify the directory path of the JRE that you want the KM to use for monitoring the Web URL. For more information, see Configuring Web URL monitoring.
