ControlUp Beta Release Notes

Real-Time DX

New Features and Enhancements

Secure Login

The following security enhancements were added:

  • Prevent ControlUp users from logging into ControlUp organizations for which they do not have privileges. 
  • Users need to enter an OTP code sent to their email address when they start the Console and log into a ControlUp organization.
  • The OTP is saved for 14 days, so users won’t need to enter it again for that period.
  • Organization owners and users with the Login Access Manager role are now the users that can permit access to the Real-Time Console and Insights.

Support for non-NVIDIA GPU metrics

In addition to NVIDIA GPU metrics, other GPU metrics are supported. GPU data is now retrieved from the Windows Operating System (WDDM), providing GPU metrics for a wide range of other graphic card manufacturers.

Prerequisites:

To gather the new GPU metrics, make sure the machine on which the GPU is running meets the following requirements:

  • Windows 10 or higher
  • Windows Server 2019 or higher

Solve

The details of this Solve release are enabled by the Real-Time Console 8.7 release. The features and fixes described are available in Solve only when the Real-Time Console is updated to version 8.7. 

New Features and Enhancements

Solve Actions

You can now run built-in actions in Solve. Refer to the Getting Started with Solve Actions guide to learn more about this feature. 

Prerequisites:

To use Solve Actions, you need to upgrade your monitors to version 8.7. Additionally, you need to have .NET Framework 4.8 installed on each monitor machine. 

Note:

If the user that runs a Solve action belongs ONLY to the Local Admin role, running a Solve Action will fail even when the permission for the script is set to “Allow”. Learn more here

IP Restrictions

By enabling the IP Restriction feature, you can now restrict who can access your Solve environment and perform actions in Solve based on IP address. You can add an IP whitelist to enable access only to those users from an IP address listed in your IP whitelist. Learn more.
