HQ 4.3 Features

SNMP v3 Support

HQ 4.3 has improved support for SNMP v3 authentication, and now also supports SNMP v3 privacy services. For more information, see SNMP Platform Service - HQ 4.3 Beta.

Enhanced Win32 Log Tracking

HQ 4.3 supports richer event logging for Win32 resources, so you can define more precise alert conditions to reduce alert volume. In previous versions of HQ, the log written for a Windows event contain the Source and the Message event attributes. In HQ 4.3, you can configure the HQ Agent to log additional event attributes, such as User and Computer, when logging a Windows event. For more information see Log Tracking.

New and Updated Plugins

  • WebLogic Server - In HQ 4.3 the HQ Agent can communicate with a WebLogic Server Administration Server using Two-Way SSL.
  • WebSphere - In HQ 4.3, support for WAS 7.0 is added. Support for WAS 5.0 is removed.
