Release Type: Micro
Previous Release: 7.2.5

What’s new

  • Releases are now built on CentOS 6.6 and tested on versions 6.6 and 6.8 of CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. CentOS follows Red Hat’s life cycle for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and version 6.5 reached end of life on November 30th 2015.
  • Added support for installing op5 Monitor when the Epel package repository is enabled.
  • Our VMware monitoring plugin, check_vmware_api, is now available on our github. We have used our own public git server earlier, but Github is the natural place to interact with the open source community nowadays.
  • Fixed an issue where reports could show 100% availability even though there were non-OK states outside scheduled downtimes.
  • The icon used in the event log for indicating that an object’s status is flapping is now available again.
  • Fixed an issue in the global search function that could cause zero results if the search string contained special characters.
  • Fixed an issue which prevented users from cancelling scheduled downtimes through the multi-action and right-click context menus.
  • Fixed an issue which prevented users from bulk-deleting graph collections.
  • Fixed an issue where the clone function could result in a message saying Notice: Undefined index: alias in /opt/monitor/op5/nacoma/include/clone.inc.php on line 238.
