Release Notes for Wanguard 7.2

Tags: Announcements, Changelog, Press Releases

September 4, 2019 - https://www.andrisoft.com - Andrisoft, a world leader in traffic monitoring and DDoS mitigation solutions, announces a new release of the award-winning Wanguard software platform.

Wanguard 7.2 brings the following new features and changes:

  • Adds support for storing graph data in InfluxDB, as an alternative to using RRD files. While it is now possible to use both InfluxDB and RRD backends at the same time, we highly recommend switching to InfluxDB for the following benefits:
    • Adding and deleting decoders for IP graphs will not reset existing data
    • It enables High Availability setups with graph data stored on redundant InfluxDB servers
    • It is much more space efficient in most configurations
    • Is compatible with our own rendering engine which generates better-looking graphs
    • It allows an easy integration with other third-party products such as Grafana
    • RRDTool support might be deprecated in the future
  • Adds support for Debian 10 and CentOS 8
  • Removes support for CentOS 6, Debian 6 and Ubuntu 12
  • Adds many visual improvements to the "Flat" theme
  • Adds support for DPDK 18.11.02
  • The installation scripts use by default a text-based user interface which can be disabled by using "cli" as argument
  • In Reports the Time Frame selector was moved to the right, next to the Refresh selector
  • Many other minor improvements and bug fixes
  • Updated User Guide

To upgrade from 6.x or 7.x, please follow the instructions listed here.
