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.

Views
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.

Logins and Usernames

Mutiny V5 uses a different method of login to previous versions. Users are identified by a minimum of 4 pieces of information:

- User Name
- Email addresses
- Password
- Role

The "User Name" is simply that, for example "John Smith", "Fred Bloggs", "Dr George Neisser" etc. It is used purely within Mutiny to make the logs more readable.

The "Email Address" is used to login to the Mutiny system when prompted to fill in the "Login" box. This has been change from Mutiny version 4 to comply with ITIL specifications.

The "Password" associated with a login is set from the [Admin]>[Users] pages within Mutiny by any "Super-Admin" level user (see below). It must be at least 8 characters long.

The "Role" of each user can be one following:

- "Super Admin" mode allows full access to the Mutiny monitoring and system configuration.
- "Administrator" mode allows full access to the Mutiny monitoring configuration.
- "Engineer" mode is a view only user who has the ability to edit node properties.
- "View" mode allows the user to view the Mutiny system, but not make any changes.

When upgrading to Mutiny V5 from Version 4, all usernames are deleted and replaced by a single "Super Admin" login, superadmin@mutiny.com with the password "password".

Dashboard Module (optional extra at additional cost)

- Customizable dashboards can be created on a per-user basis.
- Dashboards are created by combining small widgets for displaying dials, graphing, tables, maps etc.

Event and Alert Management

- Improved database structure providing a more complete view of Events and Alerting.
- Re-designed Event and Alert management with greater granularity of Event types.
- Table-base access to Alerts and Events allows you to drill into the complete Event history with
links to any Alerts that have been generated as a result.
- Complete Alert history allowing greater access each Alert and whether it was successful on not.

Document Repository

- Documents can be stored within Mutiny for easy reference.
