TNI 3.7.0: Improved SNMP scanner

Hello, friends! A new version of Total Network Inventory has seen the light of day today. The main improvements are aimed at expanding the functionality for scanning network devices via the SNMP protocol. We’ve also made a number of fixes in the main functionality.
As is usual, we offer you the full list of changes and improvements:

  • NewSignificantly increased number of fields collected via the SNMP protocol: from printers, UPSes, host resources.
  • NewMIB file package containing more than 300 RFC specifications (for decrypting the SNMP tree in the full scan mode), and a mechanism for updating it.
  • NewCollecting information about the Microsoft Edge browser version.
  • ImprovedRedesigned SNMP scanning engine.
  • ImprovedEven more information displayed about SNMP fields after the full scan.
  • FixedSNMP scanner operation when scanning via the SNMPv3 protocol with authorization.
  • FixedText in error messages when invalid SNMPv1 or SNMPv2c credentials were used.
  • FixedError in the form for editing the SNMPv3 login.
  • FixedMechanism for auto-picking common communities for scanning via SNMP.
  • FixedScanner hanging in some cases.
  • FixedScheduler: missed scans are now performed as expected after exiting sleep mode.
  • FixedChanged the algorithm for checking for updates and sending results to the resident agent.
  • FixedResident agent: disabled scan tasks are now skipped as expected.
  • FixedAuto-import: problem saving the import data path.
  • FixedError running the resident agent on an OS with Turkish localization.
  • Fixed“Ends with” condition in Table reports now works correctly.
  • FixedHints for storage assistants.

 

SNMP scanning has reached a whole new level. First off, new fields are available for reports on devices scanned via SNMP. For example, you can easily build a table report that shows the toner level in network printers or UPS battery status. And you won’t need to perform a full SNMP scan.

Changes have also affected the full scan via SNMP. The new version of the program already contains an updated MIB file package. This allows the system to decrypt many asset fields in the SNMP tree and display additional information as hints for fields on the Viewer & reports tab.

Please update and enjoy the new features.
But wait, there’s more. Coming very soon is another large-scale update that many of our users are waiting for. It’s a treat!

P.S. And don’t forget that we’re having a beta test of our new product Network Olympus. All active participants will receive a license as a gift.
