Major Features
New MAC - IP Default Dashboard

We have added a new MAC-IP dashboard to the Default Dashboards folder. This dashboard offers an overview of the network’s MAC/IP/Switchport configuration with breakdowns by VLAN, device, interface, and ARP Router.

Image Map Dashboard Panel

Added a new Image Map dashboard panel type, this panel allows you to place nodes over a custom background image, and have those nodes display configuration, state or timeseries data. See Dashboard Image Map Panel for details and example configurations.


Report Replacement

The following reports have been replaced with new versions. Any existing custom links from dashboards/custom reports will still access the old report but should be updated to point to the new report.

  • Ping Current Status
  • Ping Current Unavailable
  • Ping Top Delay (ms) Graphs
  • Ping Statistics
  • Interface Current Unavailable

The following reports have been replaced with new versions. Any existing custom links from dashboards/custom reports will no longer work and should be updated to point to the new report.
