  • RBU Metrics report is generated automatically.
  • Setup binary of U12 for supporting chrome browser 60 with WAN.
  • Setup binary of U16 for supporting chrome browser 60 and Firefox 31,32,42,43 with WAN.

Continuous Monitoring
  • A feature is implemented to enable continuous monitoring in test run.

Web Dashboard

  • Check Data Point Alerting: Enhancement in alerting mechanism on the basis of consecutive samples. For this, there is a threshold type, which generates alerts on a number of samples. Here, every data point is checked before generating an alert.
  • Handling NaN sample in Alert: This feature allows handling NaN samples in moving/fixed window average and baseline.
  • Alert value and threshold value “NaN” is replaced by “No Data” if capacity alert generated for “No Data Available” condition.
Graph Types
  • Failure Count and Failure percentage is displayed in the tool tip of GEO map.


  • Hazelcast tier callout capturing without custom callout
  • Redesign of URL capturing for Http tier callout
  • Default NDEntrypoints file instead of NA if user have not provided in configuration file
  • Feature in configuration file to remove suffix
  • Some changes related to socket handling
  • Forkjoin callout
  • Exception capturing using logger API
  • MySQL Entry point passed in EntrypointFile
  • Agent Info screen
  • Feature in configuration file for Tier/Server/Instance limit
  • Edit of Session Attribute rules: This feature enables editing of Session Attribute rules and Drop down validation for HTTP Stats monitor.
  • Additional integration point in integration point detection window.
NetDiagnostics Implementation in Jenkins
  • For calculating ND stats, NetDiagnostics Performance Report are configured by adding this in Post-build action for ND Test.
  • Provided Current time duration Period, Baseline time duration, Initial time duration, and include previous time period check box in ND Test.
  • Provided Enter CheckProfile name for CheckProfile Rule in NetDiagnostics Performance Publisher.
  • In NetDiagnostics implementation, HTML Report is generated.
  • Provided Hyperlink over each transaction for trend graph in Jenkins Plugin.


  • NV-NF and NF-NV Integration
  • Bots Filtering in NV Agent
  • Transaction Related changes

Synthetic Monitor

  • Enhancement in Request Detail Page:  More options are provided in drop-down list, such as After DomContent, After OnLoad, and Custom Time.


  • NFAgent now take configuration for parsing from NFDB. This was required for CloudEnv where our config changes were getting overwritten by the base image. In case NFDB is unreachable or config index not present, it fallback to reading configuration from files. And environment variables are stored in only one file. This allows a user to add/change parsers for logs without changing the build.
  • LogApi integration: A new API is created to send serialized events from NFAgent to NFDB for better performance.
  • Many new parsers are implemented for client’s environment.
  • In case of any issues in NFAgent, prevent CMON from crashing.
  • Exception names should be separate field for stacktrace to create graph etc. for specific exceptions.


  • Simulate new call from NO UI: This is used to simulate new PinPad call through UI. Also, user can see all the simulated call on UI.
  • Parameterization of the response call same as others services.
  • Feature to send the sync id which is generated by OMS to send the PinPad (NO).


  • Redis DB stats monitor: This monitor is for redis database stats it will show the information regarding total keys, keyspace pending expirations, average time to live.
  • Zookeeper Node stats: Zookeeper Node Stats provides metrics for latency, network throughput etc.
  • Access Log with journalctl: This is an enhanced feature to capture access log metrics with the help of journalctl command. This command output contains all message information occurred in the application.
  • JSON extension: Till now user was able to apply set of monitor on one of the tier. Now user will be able to apply same set of monitor on multiple tier at same time. Same user can apply for multiple servers and instances. Following features are implemented:
    • Multiple tiers support
    • Multiple servers support
    • Exclude one or multiple tiers and servers
    • Instance support for instance level monitors
