We are thrilled to announce that we have added FortiSwitch PoE Control and Port Mapping to our network management capabilities suite. Domotz now supports Fortinet FortiSwitch models, enhancing the ability to manage your network infrastructure efficiently.

FortiSwitch PoE Control and Port Mapping

With this feature, you can automatically extract the list of devices connected to each port of FortiSwitches. This invaluable Port Mapping functionality provides a clear and detailed overview of which device is connected to which port, simplifying network troubleshooting and device identification. As a matter of fact, this information is also used in the Automatic Network Topology Map.

Moreover, for switches equipped with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, Domotz enables you to exercise precise control over the PoE status of each port. Whether you need to power cycle a device or manage power allocation efficiently remotely, this feature helps you to take immediate action.

The PoE control functionality is accessible both within the list of interfaces for the specific switch and in the device view for the device connected to that port. This seamless integration ensures that you can easily make informed decisions and manage your PoE devices.

We are committed to enhancing your network management experience and providing you with the tools you need to maintain a resilient and efficient network. Your feedback is essential in shaping these improvements.

Please consult our comprehensive instructions on leveraging FortiSwitch PoE Control and Port Mapping.

You can use the custom scripts to monitor and manage network-connected devices, cloud services, and web applications. By using standard network protocols, these scripts will allow you to retrieve valuable data and execute actions on the monitored devices and services.

This month, we released the following:

  • APC – UPS
  • iDRAC
  • IBM iSeries – AS400

You can apply our custom script to monitor an APC UPS Room Temperature and Humidity. That script uses SNMP to retrieve detailed information about room temperature and humidity where an APC UPS resides. The script has been validated and tested on APC Smart-UPS X 3000 version 6.8.2. You can find this script in our Library or on github. Just customize the drivers to fit your needs.

Going on, we released another important enhancement that simplifies the process of managing Custom Filters in both the Inventory Dashboards and Monitoring Dashboards. You can now edit and delete existing Custom Filter rules directly from these sections.

To adjust your Custom Filters, simply access the selection for Custom Filters, and you’ll notice a new “Edit” button.

Clicking this button will open a new configuration tab, allowing you to define new rules and conditions for your filtering criteria.

This improvement offers greater flexibility and control over your Custom Filters, eliminating the need to navigate to a separate editing interface. Whether you are working within the Inventory Dashboards or the Monitoring Dashboards, the ability to edit Custom Filter rules seamlessly streamlines your network monitoring and management tasks.

Our recent enhancement lets you easily synchronize Serial Number information between Domotz and Syncro. This news offers more comprehensive data synchronization capabilities when integrating Domotz with the Syncro platform.

When configuring Documentation and Data synchronization between Domotz and Syncro, you can now select the synchronization of Serial Number information in addition to the existing data fields (such as Device name, type, model, location, etc.).

This synchronization allows you to maintain accurate Serial Number records across both platforms effortlessly. Whether you need to track assets, facilitate support, or streamline your asset management processes, this improvement ensures that your Serial Number data remains consistent and current in Domotz and Syncro.

For detailed guidance on configuring this Serial Number synchronization and maximizing the benefits of this integration, please refer to our documentation.

We have introduced an intuitive and user-friendly metric search feature that effortlessly enables you to find and add metrics to your Monitoring Tables.

With this improvement, when adding a new Monitoring Table, you now have the ability to search among all available metrics, including both built-in and custom metrics generated by Automation and Scripts.

This powerful search capability simplifies the selection of metrics, ensuring that you can quickly and accurately define the metrics you want to monitor.

Whether you track network performance, device health, or specific custom metrics (e.g. CPU or Memory), this enhancement significantly reduces the time and effort required to configure your Monitoring Tables. It offers a seamless and efficient experience when customizing your network monitoring dashboards.

For detailed information on how to use Monitoring Dashboards, please visit our documentation.

We are delighted to introduce the possibility of defining parameters for Custom Scripts during the association of scripts to devices via the Public API.

This enhancement simplifies and expedites the configuration of Custom Scripts, enabling you to perform mass associations of scripts to multiple devices with ease and efficiency. By leveraging the Public API, you can now automate the process of custom script configuration, enhancing your network monitoring and management capabilities.

For detailed information on defining parameters for Custom Scripts via the Public API and performing script associations, we invite you to consult our comprehensive documentation available at: Create Custom Driver Association.

We’ve fixed the following issues:

  • The RTD monitoring failed on huge networks due to too many samples to be managed.
  • A rare condition caused the failure in unlocking Dell iDRAC devices.
  • Special UTF-8 characters were not correctly displayed on Monitoring Dashboards (when the view was open in compact mode).
  • There was an issue preventing a Team Member, elevated to impersonate the admin account, to activate new Agents.
  • Panamax PDU Outlet (and other minor brands) consistency was not working under specific circumstances. This issue caused the list of associated devices to the PDU outlets to be removed.
  • SNMP Template was failing in extracting the negotiated bandwidth on interfaces with a speed higher than 2.5Gbps
  • Under specific circumstances, unlocking the Windows server was impossible due to failed serial number retrieval.

Known limitations

  • There is no central repository for all the alerts configured on SNMP PreConfigured, OS Monitoring, and Custom Integration script sensors.
  • Monitoring Dashboards are currently limited to Monitoring Tables as Widgets.
  • Luxul Router-based Agents do not support VPN on demand. To elaborate, we’ll add this capability as soon as Luxul’s team provides us with the required API.
  • You can’t configure the static IP address on the Domotz Box before configuring the Agent.
  • Lastly, you can’t leverage DHCP on additional VLANs on the Domotz Box.
