Version 5.1 major changes

Quick-Reports Module. 
Users can firstly set a date/time range and then choose a number of systems and monitored properties from a new easy to use GUI. This allows the user to draw multiple graphs over the chosen date/time range.
The module uses the RRD files for rapid access to the (time-averaged) data, thus allowing the build up of quick, interactive reports.

Under the "Monitoring" tab, the description [Node Map] in the View-selector has been renamed to [Icons] and a new [Map] option has been created. This displays the Google map of the pre-defined node locations and the rolled-up Status.

Node Manager
In the Node Manager, the [Update Nodes] bulk updates now lists nodes that were expected to respond to SNMP but didn't.

[Add New Nodes] and [Discover Nodes] list nodes that have been added when successful.

Adding nodes, deleting nodes and using “Show Switches” cause the Node Manager to refresh when the function has completed.

New Adapters and Agents:
CheckPoint Firewall high availability.
Dell iDRAC 7 Remote Access Controller.
Dell Physical Memory Array Status.
Dolby Digital Cinema Sound Processor CP750.
EPI Environmental Monitors.
Excel PDU.
Blue Coat (ex. Packeteer) PacketShaper.
Windows DHCP Ranges.
Export CSV” functions have been added to the Events and Alerts tables.
A new method for DNS resolution has been developed.

Bugs were fixed on the following:
UCD-SNMP/Net-SNMP Memory Adapter.
Login issues experienced by some Mutiny-Reporter users.
