Release Notes for June 30, 2017

New
Sensor health enhancements and improved monitoring so Perchy’s caretakers can respond quicker to sensors that are having issues.
  • Detection graph to see traffic level trends
  • Warning/down state for unchanging detection counts
  • Private IPs counts: how many unique IPs in each of the private IP blocks has a sensor seen (You have 1000 hosts on your network, but Perch is only seeing 10 of them)
New
Perchy gets better at communicating with users: action notification review and cleanup
  • More notifications, for both success and errors
  • Standard success/error look
New
New suppression scopes:
  • Global: SOC can suppress for all users at once
  • Community: SOC and community admins can suppress an indicator for an entire community
  • (coming soon, work complete, in-review and testing) by-IP: suppress for a single IP
Bugfix
Corrected the Community Dashboard Daily Events indicator counts so that they’re:
  • Storing the indicator counts
  • Computing the count correctly
Bugfix
Sorting by CIDR/subnet now sorts more naturally
Bugfix
Improved handling for observables that are missing intel data
Bugfix
Long comments have had a good talking to and have agreed to stay inside their comment panel better
Bugfix
Several minor bugs and tweaks corrected caused by database migrations & updates
Note
The ’all-natural’ performance enhancing supplements we’ve been feeding Perchy are paying off, his brain is bigger and better than ever!
  • Lots of expensive tech words = faster databases = more responsive Perch = happier users
  • Infrastructure work to ensure that as Perchy’s flock grows (and it is growing!), he can still respond to all of the data as fast as possible!
  • Migration to ElasticSearch 5
Note
Relational DB hardware upgrade and addition of read replica
Note
We’re making strong progress toward Perchy-bana, internal POC and development is promising
