Changelog and Release Notes

Version 7.0.2

Bugfixes

  • Security (Windows) [I938]: standard users could escalate their privileges by modifying uberAgent’s configuration.
  • Service (Windows) [I877]: fixed a possible crash of the service that could occur when uberAgent is starting.
  • Service (Windows) [I935]: fixed a memory leak when saving an internal Citrix DC/ADC PowerShell script temporarily on the local disk.

Release notes

  • Installer (Windows) [I938]: new command line options PROGRAMDATA_CONFIGDIR_RESETPERMISSIONS and PROGRAMDATA_CONFIGDIR_DELETEFILES to control whether the optional configuration directory below %ProgramData% is secured by the installer. Set PROGRAMDATA_CONFIGDIR_DELETEFILES=0 only if you’re removing potentially malicious existing config files as part of your own deployment package logic.

Known issues

  • Boot duration (Windows): the metrics TotalBootTimeMs, MainPathBootTimeMs and PostBootTimeMs cannot be determined for every system boot.
  • Browsers/IE add-on (Windows): metrics are not collected on page reload.
  • Browsers/IE add-on (Windows): metrics are collected incompletely for the configured start page.
  • Browsers/IE add-on (Windows): monitoring does not work if IE is published from Citrix Virtual Apps. It does work from Citrix Virtual Desktops, however.
  • Browsers/Firefox add-on: if the option privacy.resistFingerprinting is set to true, browser metrics are not available due to invalid data being sent from Firefox.
  • Citrix ADC: in very rare cases, the content of the Virtual Server Performance field vServerName contains spaces in the wrong places.
  • Citrix site monitoring (Windows): data collection issue if the Citrix Remote Powershell SDK (required for Citrix Cloud monitoring) is installed on a CVAD controller.
  • Citrix XA/XD Machines (Windows): when running the Citrix VDA on a Citrix Delivery Controller, some per-machine information is missing.
  • Experience score [I377]: scheduled searches generate three warnings in Splunk’s _internal index every 30 minutes. The messages look like the following: DateParserVerbose - Failed to parse timestamp in first MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD (128) characters of event.. However, there is no impact on uberAgent’s functionality.
  • GPU (Windows) [I33]: values for the fields ComputeUsagePercentAllEngines, ComputeUsagePercentEngine0 and similar can be higher than 100 with Intel Iris GPUs on Windows Server 2016 1607.
  • Kafka [I291]: in rare cases sending data to Kafka results in a SEC_E_BUFFER_TOO_SMALL error message in the logfile. This should have no effect; the transmission is repeated and succeeds on the second try.
  • Update inventory (Windows): not all installed Windows updates may be reported due to API limitations.
  • Volume inventory (macOS): the encryption status of mounted read-only APFS snapshots may not be reported due to API limitations. This includes the root directory volume in a default installation of macOS.
