Over the holiday break, we released a new version of the Movere Console with several improvements and fixes. We have also made several upgrades to our Multiple-User Interface (MUI) over the last few weeks, details below.
Current Version Numbers for Our Binaries
- Console, Service and Windows Inventory Bots: 188.8.131.52
- Windows ARC Bots: 184.108.40.206
- Linux Bots: 220.127.116.11
New Console Features
Movere Console now includes an option to run ARC as an executable, rather than as a service, enabling ARC to run in the most secure and change sensitive environments. Note: when running as an executable, ARC will not survive reboots.
To run Movere as an executable, select “Local scan + remote (WMI)” from the Scanning Method tab, (to run as a service, select “All available”):
Calculating license requirements in the cloud is different from on-premises. Movere now captures CPU threads for cloud devices to allow proper calculation for SQL Server license requirements.
Movere Console adds support for new virtual machines:
- "Common KVM" = Virtual-KVM
- "QEMU Virtual version 2.3.0" = Virtual-QEMU
Fixed throttling issues for Microsoft RDS and Citrix Server for ARC Scans.
Fixed an issue where the same payload was being uploaded multiple times, (this was often caused by resident Anti-Virus programs.)
Fixed an issue that had ARC CPU utilization above 100%. This was caused by customers in non-US regions that use a character other than “.” as the delimiter for decimals.
Fixed an issue where a guest (vm) was not scanned, however it’s host (hypervisor) has been scanned. We now leverage the CPU Make & Model information from the host to be able to size the guest for AWS or Azure.
New MUI Features
Over the last few weeks, we have made small updates to Movere’s Multiple User Interface (MUI). We are continually striving to make Movere as user-friendly as possible, and we hope these updates will provide greater insight with less clickthrough!
Inventory and ARC data pausing: it is now possible for Partner admin users to pause, and resume, both Inventory and ARC data uploading. From the Tenants tab, simply filter on the desired customer tenant and click the “Manage Data Processing” option:
From here, you will have the option to pause, or resume, data processing for either Inventory or ARC data, or both. To pause/resume processing, click the data type you want to manage. Changes to data processing will go into effect within 30 minutes:
In addition, you will be able to see the customers whose data processing is paused from the Tenants tab, including which specific data type is paused:
Region and Data Processing on Stats tab: we have added a tenant’s Movere datacenter region and data processing paused status to the Stats tab:
Easier User Invitations: we have added a search box to the User Invitation form, allowing you to change tenants from within the form:
This addresses an issue when the user limit for a tenant was maxed out, requiring users to click out of the invitation form to change tenants.
We also added the ability to invite users directly from the Tenants tab. By clicking the “Add User” icon, you can send registration invites without navigating to the Users tab:
When inviting users via the Tenants tab, the tenant field will pre-populate the customer tenant. You can change this in the form to invite users to a different tenant:
Auto-calculation of expiration dates: Movere will now automatically calculate the expiration date of a tenant, based on the specific length of subscription and the date the first user(s) registered to the tenant.
Expiration dates will be blank until the first user registers; once first registration is complete, the expiration date will update:
