uberAgent 5.2.1: Elasticsearch 7, GPU Usage, IE Enhanced Protected Mode

We are happy to announce the newest version of our user experience and application performance monitoring product. uberAgent 5.2.1 adds support for Elasticsearch 7 and brings many other improvements.

For a full list of changes, please consult the release notes. As always, upgrading is highly recommended (instructions).

Elasticsearch 7

uberAgent now fully supports the latest Elasticsearch version. Instructions on how to prepare Elasticsearch for uberAgent are available here.

GPU Usage

Even Better Robustness

uberAgent has long supported GPUs, and with version 5.2.1 the GPU detection is even more robust. Per-machine and per-process GPU compute usage now switch to an alternative algorithm if the original algorithm fails (observed with Nvidia Grid). This requires Windows 10 1709 or later.

GPU Engine per Process

uberAgent now determines per process which GPU engine is used most heavily (requires Windows 10 1709). This makes GPU monitoring on a process level much more accurate. Different uses like video decoding, or 3D acceleration can be clearly distinguished.

Internet Explorer Enhanced Protected Mode

uberAgent collects metrics about web app performance from all major browsers through add-ons, including Internet Explorer. The add-on now works in Internet Explorer’s Enhanced Protected Mode, too.
