New and Enhanced Features in


  • Content Security Policy Header in Tomcat HTTP Response: The Content-Security-Policy (CSP) HTTP response header helps to reduce XSS risks on modern browsers by declaring which dynamic resources are allowed to load. CSP is implemented in tomcat by adding filter, which adds CSP header in tomcat response.
  • Provided GUI support of Lighthouse for ease of user in RBU.
  • Enhancement in Search Parameter: A user can apply parameterization in Left Boundary and Right Boundary of Search parameter.
  • New Report format for Jenkins HTML Report / Netstorm Performance Report: Jenkins and Test Suite Report format has been enhanced to support a separate transaction wise data, vector group wise data and other scalar data with two new benchmark options (Production and Stress benchmark values) which can be configured from Check profile window.
  • Alert Counters based on Business / Infra / Rule level: Until now, a user is able to see the Alert counters based on Business / Infra / Rule level using Rest API. From now onwards, it is available using monitors also. Using this feature, the user can configure Alerts based on Rule level (Tier basis, Tier > Server basis, and so on) and Business/Infra Level alert counters.
  • Memory and CPU performance improvements in processing data for discontinued mode: Currently while applying time for a long duration (12/16/24 hours or more) with discontinued flag on; it takes a lot of memory as well as CPU processing. The logic has been optimized to save both memory and CPU cycles, and we were able to process the data of same time duration in approximately 1/3 time.
  • Transpose data generation performance improvements: Transpose data generation got broken while doing the changes for new compact data types. This issue is resolved in this release. In addition, generation of whole day transpose data used to take a lot of time (more than 30 minutes and sometimes more depending on the RTG data size). We did an optimization, which now allows the data creation in approximately 2-3 minutes based on the RTG data size. Transpose data is useful in fetching the historical data (before current day) quickly as compared to RTG file structure.


  • Support for latest driver of postgres DB.


  • Access log implementation for NetOcean services in forward mode: A new field is added in access log in the last as “Service-Mode”. This helps a user to capture ‘Service Stats’ and ‘Service HTTP Status Code’. When a user test any service in forward mode, its request time, response time, protocol, and status code is stored in the accesslog directory (hpd/logs/accesslog).


  • Enhancements in Gauge Chart: The count automatically increases / decreases as the size of the gauge-chart increases / decreases.
  • Enhancement in NF Alert Event Count: Now, exact number of counts are provided whenever any alert event occurs. For example – “15 events occurred between 2018-12-12 01:18 CST and 2018-12-12 01:23 CST”.
  • Support of Multiple Aggregate Function for Stats: Multivalue support is provided in NetForest via following constructs:
    • Nomv Construct: This construct can be used to convert multivalue field into single value field. A multivalue field of an nfdb index document can have multiple comma-separated values stored in array.
    • Makemv Construct: This construct can be used to convert single value field into multivalue field. This construct splits single value field based on the delimiter provided in query. Default value of the delimiter is comma.
