PRTG 188.8.131.523 is now available in the stable release channel! This version comes with the experimental NetApp SnapMirror v2 sensor, the experimental Port v2 sensor, and an update for all language files.
i Please note
With PRTG 22.4.80 we discontinue the Cloud HTTP and Cloud Ping sensors. They will be paused automatically and replaced with their successor versions Cloud HTTP v2 and Cloud Ping v2 upon updating.
For more information have a look at this Knowledge Base article.
Let's have a look at the new sensors:
Experimental: NetApp SnapMirror v2 sensor
The NetApp SnapMirror v2 sensor monitors SnapMirror relationships of an ONTAP storage system with the Representational State Transfer (REST) application programming interface (API) using ONTAP as of version 9.6.
This sensor was converted to a new framework so that it will continue to function after the changes of the ONTAP REST API.
Experimental: Port v2 sensor
The Port v2 sensor (still in Beta) monitors a network service by connecting to one or more of its TCP/IP ports. It combines the features of the Port sensor and Port Range sensor. The sensor comes with the channels Maximum Connect Time, Open Ports, Closed Ports and Errors and will send you alerts depending on your settings for open or closed ports.
Furthermore the API keys feature is now completed and API keys can also be used in the new API for authentication instead of implementing login credentials in a script or integration. It's been possible to create and manage API keys in the PRTG web interface since PRTG 184.108.40.2063.
We also fixed several issues for experimental NetApp v2 sensors and improved the Microsoft 365 Service Status Advanced sensor filtering process. Additionally, with this version, you will again be reminded with an automatically created to-do ticket about the deprecation of the following sensor types: Google Drive sensor, Microsoft OneDrive sensor, Dropbox sensor and Google Analytics sensor. Running sensors of these types will still work, but you will not be able to deploy new ones.
For further information about sensor deprecation and discontinuation in general please see our Knowledge Base article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/90680
