HostMonitor and RCC: When you copy test item(s), you may choose one of the following options:
Just copy, this option tells application to create exact* copy of selected test items.
Edit copied items before using, this option allows you to modify test properties for each copy of the test(s). HostMonitor will not execute new test(s) until you close Test Properties dialog using "Ok" button. Also you may click "Cancel" button, in such case HostMonitor will offer a choice: skip (do not copy) this test item or skip this and the following items from being copied.
Disable copied items, tells application to create copy of selected test items and disable copies from being tested (you may edit and then enable test items at convenient time)
*Note: When HostMonitor/RCC copies test item(s), it copies test properties, assigns unique TestID to new instance of the item and sets statistical counters to 0.
HostMonitor: RCI Status window allows you to disconnect several selected operators at once
HostMonitor: RCI Status window allows you to send text messages to remote RCC operators
RCC: when operator cannot establish fully-functional connection with HostMonitor due to license limitations*, RCC provides option to send text message to other operators. You may send message to specific operator or you may send message to all connected operators. E.g. "admin" may send message to "guest" and ask him to close session.
*Note: you don't need to have several RCC licenses in order to be able to start RCC on several systems at different times. You need additional licenses only when you start several consoles at the same time, so several operators are able to work with HostMonitor at the same time.
HostMonitor, RCC and Web Service: if operator has permission to configure tests/folders and/or permission to manage schedules then he may use Refresh command to execute tests that should not be performed due to schedule restrictions. Note: HostMonitor and RCC prompts for confirmation before such operation.
HostMonitor and RCC: Expression Editor checks expressions for quotation marks and parenthesis, marks such elements in red when error detected, shows warning label with hint
HostMonitor and RCC: other minor GUI improvements
HostMonitor: 2 new macro variables: %TrapAllValues_Name% and %TrapAllValues_NameShort%
The following issues were resolved:
[-] HostMonitor and RCC: Estimated Load dialog provides "Check relations" function that allows you to verify master-dependant relations between test items. In some cases this function could not detect self loops. Fixed
[-] HostMonitor: if "Recheck dependant test items when master test status has been changed" option is enabled, HostMonitor could execute dependant "irregular" test items at inappropriate time. Fixed
[-] HostMonitor 7.46 could return false "No answer" status for DICOM services (note: older versions of HostMonitor work correctly). Fixed
[-] RMA 3.82 could miss some connection requests from HostMonitor (note: older versions of the agent work correctly). Fixed
[-] Telnet Service did not work with some Telnet clients (e.g. UNIX Kerberos 5 Telnet Client). Fixed
