Version 4.5 (February 16, 2011)

On connection establishment actions

Using new On Connection Establishment handler you can execute custom actions when connection to host is established, i.e. when first ping is passed successfully. You can use this handler on the same way as you use On Connection Loss and On Connection Restoring handlers by specifying custom actions that should be execution. In the Professional edition of the application you can override common configuration and specify custom action for every host.

Prevent system load peaks

The new System Load Peaks option of the application Preferences is aimed to reduce a system workload when you monitor a large number of hosts at the same time. This option allows you to limit a number of pings that can be sent per second.

Timeout for custom actions

Custom actions configured for execution on connection establishment, loss and restore events can be executed with a specified timeout. It can be useful when you need, for example, to detect a host availability, wait some time until it completes startup actions and execute custom action to operate with it.
