GroundWork Monitor 7.1.1 Release

GroundWork Monitor 7.1.1 is now available for download. Join us Thursday, January 17th at 1 PM ET (10 AM PT) for a demonstration of 7.1.1. We will walk through the enhanced Cloud Hub connectors, new GDMA and NeDI features, updated Cacti plugins and more, as well as show you how to upgrade to the new version.

Tech Tip: How to set up trend graphs

Here is a nifty tech tip about how to set up trend graphs and productive alerts in GroundWork. While this feature has been around awhile, we decided to dust it off since we still get questions about it. We like it for its simplicity and elegant understandability. Using this simple method, you can take any graphed metric and do a least-squares regression trend line on it. Then set thresholds for how soon you predict you’ll be in trouble. How’s that for being proactive?
