Redesigned My Portal

The My Portal has been redesigned to include several new sections:

* Search: Search the online knowledgebase or user community for answers to your most common questions.
* Help Links: Quick links to online tutorials, the user community and documentation.
* Latest up.time Articles: Read the latest updates from our up.time knowledgebase
* up.time Information: Get updates on new product versions and verify your license status


Agent and Node Auto-discovery

Click My Enterprise -> Auto Discovery to see a complete listing of all devices on your local network that up.time can monitor. Once the scan is complete quickly add nodes, agents and ESX servers without having to fill in standard information over and over again.


Integrated Monitoring Station Self-monitoring

The up.time Windows monitoring station now automatically adds the localhost system as an up.time agent. The monitoring station is then automatically monitored for performance or availability issues that could cause outages of your up.time monitoring station. This allows you to easily add proactive monitoring of your up.time monitoring station without the need to configure secondary or customized service monitoring.

To view or make changes to your new self-monitoring services browse to the localhost element from My Enterprise.


Integrated Support Problem Report

A new Problem Report tool has been added to the up.time interface that allows you to quickly capture a snapshot of your up.time monitoring station for use in interactions with our Client Support Team. This greatly enhances your support experience by ensuring that our support team has all of the information they need to resolve a support case without needing to spend time gathering basic configuration information.

To generate a Problem Report browse to the Config tab and then click the Problem Report navigation option. Because the problem report takes a complete snapshot of your up.time configuration it can also be used to take configuration only backup's of your monitoring station that can be imported in the case of an emergency on your monitoring station.


Streamlined Installation Process

The installation process has been greatly improved for both new installs and upgrades on Windows monitoring stations. Now both upgrades and clean installations are run from a single monitoring station package that is substantially smaller than previous releases.
