PA Storage Monitor Release Candidate

This page is where you can find our very latest release. Versions that make it to this page are considered solid and candidates for production release, but they haven't finished testing or received enough feedback yet. If we implement a feature or fix for you, we will typically send you to this page to try it out.

Current Release

Version [October 14, 2017] is currently in testing.

NOTE: Because of the new Message Template feature, Consoles will need to be version or newer before they can connect to this version. It is highly recommended that Satellites are upgraded as well.

Updates / Upgrades

PA Storage Monitor can be upgraded by simply installing the latest version on top of your existing installation. Your settings and databases will be upgraded as needed.

You might need to reset the PA Storage Monitor service's Run As account (from Settings or the Windows Services applet), but other than that no further configuration changes will be needed.

In the last 10 years I have worked with many monitoring solutions like [list of well-known competitors], and I can say that your solution is the best.
