New features and improvements in EOC
EOC 2.0 offers new features and improvements compared to previous releases of EOC.
Improved data collection
Previous versions of EOC polled remote Orion servers at regular intervals, retrieving large sets of data during each polling period. The data displayed in EOC was frequently not current, resulting in delayed status updates and alert notifications.
EOC 2.0 leverages a function called SWIS Federation to query for specific data only when needed, and return the aggregated results to EOC. This improved data collection method allows EOC to display live, on-demand data from all monitored SolarWinds Sites.
Orion interface and functionality
EOC 2.0 is built on the same framework as other members of the Orion product suite. This provides:
- An improved UI, with familiar navigation, icons, and controls.
- Access to Orion features such as High Availability and the ability to implement Additional Web Servers.
The new Enterprise Environment Summary view displays consolidated data from all monitored SolarWinds Sites. Use this view to quickly identify potential issues, and then drill through for more detailed information.
- Status tiles on the Environment Summary view provide high-level status information about a group of monitored entities. You can create custom tiles to display the information most important to you.
- When you identify a potential issue, click a status icon or number to display a filtered list of entities in the Asset Explorer. From there, you can click through to the remote SolarWinds Site for details.
EOC displays active alerts from all SolarWinds Sites. You can acknowledge an alert from EOC and add notes. The acknowledgement and notes are passed to the SolarWinds Site where the alert was triggered.
Use EOC to create and customize reports that show information from multiple SolarWinds Sites. When you create or edit a report, you can specify which sites you want to include. You can also import reports from SolarWinds Sites.
Data that was displayed in resources in previous versions of EOC is available in EOC 2.0 reports.
Import maps from SolarWinds Sites to display status information in EOC NOC view. Use the Orion Worldwide Map resource to display consolidated information from multiple SolarWinds Sites.
Data from multiple sites in PerfStack™
Perform advanced analysis by pulling data from multiple SolarWinds Sites into a single Performance Analysis (PerfStack) dashboard.
Implementation for existing customers
EOC 2.0 has been rebuilt to run on the Orion Platform. For this reason, you cannot upgrade from a previous version to EOC 2.0. To begin using the new features, simply install EOC 2.0 on a different server. For more information, see SolarWinds Orion Installer for EOC.
Known issues in EOC 2.0
|A SolarWinds Site is reconfigured to point to a new database|
|Issue: If you add a SolarWinds Site to EOC and then the site is reconfigured to point to a new database, EOC dashboards and reports do not work correctly and an error is displayed.|
|A site or group used to filter a custom tile is removed|
|Issue: If you create a custom tile and then an administrator removes a site or group used to filter the data that the tile displays, the tile displays invalid data.|
|Missing application statuses on a custom tile|
|Issue: If a custom tile is filtered by a group that contains applications and Application is selected as the Entity Filter, the tile does not display application status information.|
|Resolution: Do not filter by a group containing applications and choose Applications as the Entity Filter.|
|A custom tile is filtered by a group that contains another group|
|Issue: A custom tile displays invalid data if it is filtered by a group that contains another group.|
|Resolution: Do not filter by a group that contains another group.|
|Using the browser's Back button to return to the Enterprise Environment Summary|
|Issue: If you click a link in a status resource tile on the Enterprise Environment Summary view, the Asset Explorer opens. If you then click the browser's Back button, you return to the Enterprise Environment Summary view. However, the titles of the Environment Summary and Active Alerts resources are not displayed.|
|Work-around: Use the menu to navigate back to the Enterprise Environment Summary view.|
|Resolution: If this occurs, refresh the browser page to restore the titles.|
