New Sensor Dashboard and Rack PDU Outlet Control

Product Update: Version 3.11

Our latest product update is a big one! we’ve introduced a new add-on feature called Control that includes Outlet Control, which lets you power on, off, and cycle your rack PDUs remotely through the platform. We’ve also introduced a new persistent Search Bar, a Sensor Dashboard, and Automated Catalog Data Feedback. Plus, we’ve made significant enhancements to Heatmaps, Rack Security, and the ServiceNow CMDB Sync integration – along with various improvements.


Sensor Dashboard and Data Export

A new Sensor Dashboard has been added to allow users to better visualize collected sensor data for an asset. Users will be able to toggle between list and card view for sensors. In addition, we’ve improved the Sensor data export to allow for up to 180 days of raw or daily summary data, provided that the range falls within license limits and corresponding data exists. This is available from both the application GUI and the API.

Lastly, we’ve developed a free sensor data download tool for Hyperview called Simple Sensor Report (SSR). SSR allows you to download monthly summary data for one sensor and one asset type. For example, you could use this tool to get energy metering reports for racks. SSR is available in our Github.

Rack PDU Outlet Control


Rack PDU Outlet Control

Rack PDU Outlet Control, along with Firmware Management and Rack Security, is part of a new add-on feature called Control that allows you to Power On, Power Off and Power Cycle rack PDU hardware remotely from Hyperview. The Control add-on feature is available for $1/asset/year. Please contact your account manager to add Control to your subscription.

Important: This new feature requires the latest version of the Data Collector software.

Search Bar


Search Bar

A new, persistent Search Bar has been added to the top of the application to allow for faster access to Quick and Advanced Search. With this design change, the Account Management link has been moved from the bottom left to the top right.



Automated Catalog Data Feedback

Now when you add an unknown model to Hyperview, the model information is automatically added to the Catalog improvement request queue for review. This allows our team to quickly add support for the device model.

Administrators can manage this setting from the “Settings -> General -> Catalog Data” page.

Please note that this new feature is turned Off by default.

3D Heatmap

Improvements to Heatmaps, Rack Security, and ServiceNow CMDB Sync

The Heatmap visualization in 2D and 3D has been tweaked to be far more accurate and performant. You will notice a cleaner color gradation to show temperature range and area coverage. There was a also a host of bug fixes, usability and performance improvements.

Rack Security
Rack Security Control actions have been enhanced to integrate with Work Orders. A rack open operation will create a corresponding Work Order to document and track the action.

Administrators are now able to test the ServiceNow credentials from the configuration page before any sync job is attempted.
