Scrutinizer 6.0.1 released

Post by benp » Tue Jun 10, 2008 9:44 am

Plixer is pleased to announce the release of 6.0.1. This release is
considered a patch to reported issues during the initial 6.0.0 release. A
couple things to note about 6.0.1:

- there have been some behavior rule changes to configuring custom reports
(see change log below)
- 6.0.1 will be required in order to use NBA or the Central Interface (v2)

Plixer encourages that anyone running a version prior to 6.0.1 upgrade to
the latest version.

The downloads are available from our website for download. You can download
them directly below:

Full Install: http://files.plixer.com/plixer-scrutinizer-win32.exe
Upgrade:

Below is the complete changelog for 6.0.0 to 6.0.1.

Version 6.0.1 - 6/9/2008

### IMPORTANT NOTES ###

It is important to backup your database before upgrading any software.

******************************** IMPORTANT ********************************

Customer Reports have been modified so that:

* Multiple interfaces on the same device can be added
* Interfaces added cannot be marked as excluded
* interfaces across multiple devices can be added however:
- it is limited to one instance per device
- the 2nd instance number must be identical to the first
device added (i.e. interface 1 on router A and interface 1 on router
B).
It will not allow interface 1 on router A and interface 2 on router B.

Also, any existing report that has exclusions on an interface will need to
be modified. The front-end will tell you (from the tree menu) which reports
need adjusting.

These changes will provide more accurate reporting with certain criteria
combinations. If you do not change the report criteria, it can cause
misrepresentation of IP addresses on interfaces and in some cases overstate
traffic totals. Our intention with reporting was to represent the criteria
of a custom report as a single device. However, users are beginning to use
it
differently and therefore these adjustments need to be made for this
minor release.

We will rework custom reporting in 7.0 without the restrictions applied by
this patch release.
