Description of Functionality

Our Fall 2010 Stable 1 release contains the following new or improved functionality:

  • Discovery for VMware vCenter: ServiceNow Discovery can now explore the VMware vCenter process running on a Windows machine and return information on managed ESX Servers, hosted virtual machines, and resource pools.
  • Monitoring Performance on Threads: Active threads are now monitored for system diagnostics, both within a Performance Chart and within the transaction log.
  • Encrypting MID Server login credentials: Field encryption is now available in the MID Server config.xml file, enabling an administrator to encrypt the MID Server credentials that appear in clear text by default.
  • Inserting/Updating GlideRecord with References: When inserting or updating a record, these GlideRecord methods also insert or update related records. Any related records are inserted/updated first, and then the record itself is inserted/updated.
  • GlideForm getReference(callback) API: The getReference() method now accepts a second parameter, a callback function, for asynchronous use.
  • MID Server Heartbeat: Discovery now checks the MID Server for a response every 5 minutes, using a Heartbeat probe. The response triggers system events that can be used to notify users of a change in the MID Server's status.
