Release Notes for the
"Stable" Release Channel

 

Software versions in this channel are updated about once a month. In this most conservative channel you receive the best tested versions. We recommend that you use PRTG's stable versions for live environments.

Please use the "Auto-Update" feature to update your PRTG installation: In the PRTG web interface, simply navigate to Setup | Auto Update. You can also obtain the latest version from the PRTG download page!

improved

Sensors


Amazon CloudWatch

Amazon CloudWatch sensors include the AWS region Asia Pacific (Mumbai).

Folder

We improved the sensor usability: The down and warning states for the file age check are now based on channel limits so the sensor will still receive data if this check fails by definition.

Core


Reports

In some configurations, graphs where missing in (historic data) reports.

Core

Stability improvements.


Fixed

Sensors


Traffic Sensors

In certain cases, traffic sensors and some other sensor types with difference channels displayed too high values (spikes) in graphs. This is only a display error that this update fixes for new data. Optionally Recalculate PRTG Graph Data Cache in the PRTG web interface under Setup | System Administration | Administrative Tools after this update to correct the graph display for older data if needed.

Various Sensors

Sensor types that run an executable using the Paessler.xml.dll (for example, SQL v2 sensors) handle difference channels correctly again.


Fixed

Reports


Graphs

Historic data reports display graphs again. In certain cases PRTG used an incorrect address to load graphs.

Fixed

Sensors

HTTP Advanced

HTTP Advanced sensor now correctly escapes quotation marks when used in the sensor settings.

Oracle SQL v2

Fixed an issue caused by the connection encryption of the Oracle SQL v2 sensor.

Fixed

Probe System


Probe System

We improved the probe system's WMI stability.


Important

Maps


Geo Maps

We are currently rerouting the map requests from MapQuest to Nokia Maps.

Fixed

Security


Server

We fixed a potential CBC cipher vulnerability (CVE-2016-2107) by disabling the AES-NI extension ("Intel Advanced Encryption Standard Instructions"). Older browsers and other clients which do not use GCM ciphers may lose performance per CBC calculation because of this fix. This fix also includes the library update to OpenSSL version 1.0.1t

WebGUI

We fixed a potential XSS vulnerability: This XSS exploit has been only possible when accessing the PRTG web interface with Firefox. See this article for details about Firefox and security: How secure is it to access the PRTG web interface with Firefox?

Fixed

Sensors


SSL Certificate

The SSL Certificate sensor shows a down status now if "Certificate Name Validation" fails (common name check).

Fixed

Maps


Access Rights

PRTG users with sufficient access rights can view maps correctly again. The map refresh caused an incorrect access rights error for certain PRTG user groups before.

Changed

Licenses


License Names

We changed the license name of PRTG Unlimited to PRTG XL1 and replaced the license PRTG 5 Core Global with PRTG XL5. PRTG XL1 allows an unlimited number of sensors on 1 core server installation, PRTG XL5 on 5 core servers worldwide. Please consider the PRTG system requirements for installations with many sensors.

Sensors


Deprecated Sensors

As announced in previous PRTG versions, we have removed deprecated sensor types from PRTG. Running sensors of this type will stop monitoring and show a down status as soon as you update to this version. Please see this article for details: The PRTG Sensor Cleanup
Note: The deprecated sensor types ADO SQL, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, and Oracle SQL will continue monitoring (now using the new SQL engine in the background) and keep their configuration. Please see this article for details: Migration Path for Deprecated SQL Sensors

Changed

Notifications


Notification Summarization

PRTG collects up to 25 email notifications per defined gathering interval and sends the summarization as soon as this number is reached. Because of this, you may receive more than one summarization per gathering interval. The reason for this change is that some email clients have issues with long (HTML) emails.

improved

Sensors


HTTP Sensors

HTTP sensors added by the auto-discovery are now named HTTP, HTTP (8080), or HTTPS depending on the connection to the target device. This helps to distinguish automatically added HTTP sensors at one look.

Oracle Tablespace

The Oracle Tablespace sensor includes new channels for “Database Size” (current size of the database) and “Database Size on Disk” (managed tablespace).

SQL v2 Sensors

You can now use placeholders in SQL query files of SQL v2 sensors (@prtg for Microsoft SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, :prtg for Oracle SQL, ? (question mark) for ADO SQL). Provide the input parameter in the sensor settings and PRTG will replace the placeholder in the SQL query. This is a great option if you use many SQL sensors where the queries differ in only one parameter!
Furthermore, a change trigger is available for changing sensor messages of SQL v2 sensors.

Windows Network Card

The Windows Network Card sensor can show more data now, including 64-bit counters, virtual network interfaces, teamed adapters, and virtual connections (for example, VPN).

improved
