    Enhanced Security, Improved Performance Reporting with DX UIM 20.4 Cumulative Update 7

    In today's fast-paced digital world, keeping up with the latest technology advancements is crucial for businesses to stay ahead of the competition. This is especially true in the world of IT infrastructure management, where technology is rapidly evolving and new solutions are being developed to meet the changing needs of businesses.

    One such solution is DX Unified Infrastructure Management (DX UIM) 20.4 CU7, which offers several significant benefits that make upgrading a smart move for every customer. In this blog, we will explore why upgrading to DX UIM 20.4 CU7 is essential for all enterprise, government agency, and managed service provider customers.

    Improved Performance and Scalability

    One of the main advantages of upgrading to DX UIM 20.4 CU7 is improved performance and scalability. The new version features a re-architected and optimized database for accessing performance data that delivers faster and more efficient performance reports, enabling organizations to monitor and manage their infrastructure at greater speed.

    Additionally, the solution can handle larger volumes of data and support more devices, making it an ideal solution for large customers with complex infrastructure and client environments. Performance Report Designer (PRD) now has support for filter verification for 500 QoS objects, while a single chart can hold up to 50 QoS objects.

    Enhanced User Experience

    DX UIM 20.4 CU7 features a redesigned web interface that is more intuitive and user-friendly, enabling IT professionals to access the information they need more quickly and efficiently. Performance Report Designer now supports readable tooltip, improved sorting and filtering of reports and charts, and dynamic filtering of the reports. A new charting library is used for better data presentation and deprecated line option from the legend in the PRD.

    Increased Security with Robot Deployment Options

    With cybersecurity threats on the rise, it is essential for businesses to implement solutions that provide robust security options. DX UIM 20.4 CU7 offers improved encryption and access control options that support DX UIM robot (agent) deployment with less privileged rights (non-root), meeting particular enterprise security guidance by SecOps teams.

    Enhanced Secure Deployment by Supporting Passive Robot on Secure Bus

    One of the most important aspects of any IT infrastructure management tool is its ability to protect against security threats. With DX UIM 20.4 CU7, and onward, configuration is not required to make a robot passive in the secure mode deployment hub. This means enabling passive mode in the controller GUI is sufficient.

    Scaled Up and Reliable Zero Touch Configuration

    With DX UIM 20.4 CU7, the Monitoring Configuration Service (MCS) feature is improved in terms of both scale and reliability. MCS is optimized for DX UIM Group profile evaluation, as it now avoids unnecessary re-deployment of regular profiles. MCS profile redeployment is only triggered for “For–Each” profiles against all profiles earlier.

    The MCS feature has improved its reliability by avoiding both profile corruption and data inconsistency in the database via introduction of the activate_probe_templates_package callback, which checks the migration path and aborts the migration in case IT operator/tools admin migrate a probe template package without following the recommended upgrade path.

    Simplified Deployment and Upgrades

    The new release also includes several improvements to deployment and upgrade processes, making it easier and more efficient to install and upgrade DX UIM.

    In addition to these key features, DX UIM 20.4 CU7 includes numerous other improvements and bug fixes that enhance the overall stability and performance of the platform.
