    • Multiple Metric Specific Y-axis in charts for improved analysis
    • An administrative dialogue to allow for selection of data resolution
    • Column sorting and filtering on Scorecard Views
    • Adjustable time-range on individual customized charts within a dashboard
    • OpenAPI output in CSV for additional flexibility in data processing
    • Details link in notification emails augmented with time range relative to the threshold

     

    Administrative and Core Function Improvements:

    • Improved DR installation checks
    • Introduction of new device life cycle state for Maintenance
    • Support for advanced metric expressions in vendor certifications

     

    At the CA Performance Management 2.7 Sprint 2 Demo we introduced CA PC dashboards for SDN/NFV data, collected by CA Virtual Network Assurance (a not yet released product). If you are interested in testing CA Performance Management 2.7 integration with CA Virtual Network Assurance, contact Tim Diep via Team-CAPerformanceManagementTeam@ca.com.

     

    Downloading the Sprint 2 Kit

    We are piloting a new way to provide CA Performance Management Sprint Kits to those of you in the IM Pre-Release Community who are interested in downloading kits and testing them in a development environment. Some of you may already be aware of CA’s validation platform validate.ca.com. The CA Performance Management 2.7 Sprint 2 Kit is available via the CA Performance Management 2.7 project on validate.ca.com.

     

    To join the CA Performance Management 2.7 project on validate.ca.com and get access to the project and the Sprint 2 Kit, use the following link. If you are already a member of validate.ca.com, this link will work for you too.

     

    Just like with sprint kits posted on Cloud Commons or the Marketplace in the past, by joining the IM Pre-Release Community you have signed the CA Pre-Release agreement and are bound by that agreement. Kits are provided for your use only, and in non-production environments only.
