April 9, 2015 - Informant Systems and Nu Design Technologies partner for extended Windows SNMP support

Informant Systems, Inc. and Nu Design Technologies Inc have agreed to extend their partnership to provide full interoperability to ensure an easy transition to a 100% compatible SNMP stack replacement in light of Microsoft's announcement of the deprecation of the Windows SNMP service in Windows Server 2012.

Together, our intent is to ensure that NuDesign's secure SNMPv3 Master Agent Service for Windows and Informant Systems' SNMP Informant provide the best possible combination for Windows Server SNMP support.  Both companies have pledged engineering support to continue providing full interoperability and integration.  Among the cooperative goals are:

  1. Providing an integrated evaluation product.
  2. Improving the initial installation process.
  3. Reviewing improvements in mass deployment of Nu Design's SNMPv3 Service with SNMP Informant in production environments.

Upgrade to SNMPv3 today!  Visit www.snmp4windows.com for more information.


May 6, 2015 - v2014.1.1 released

Updates:
Fixed "rapid succession polling" bug.  When certain (non PDH value) OIDs were polled successively (i.e. within 5 seconds), SNMP Informant would sometimes reply back with an integer (4294967295).  This value was meaningless.  Another solution is to set the registry value HKLM/Software/WTCS/Informant/<product>/MinimumQueryRate to 0.  Default is 5000 (5000 milliseconds or 5 seconds).
Download the latest version here.
Meantime, we're working on version 2015.1. Some of the key updates include:

  1. Enhanced Hyper-V support
  2. Enhanced Cluster Server support
  3. Exchange 2013 support
