Data source service packs are a way of keeping your data collection capabilities up to date. On OCI 7.2.0 and higher, data source service packs are simply .patch files that you deploy via the OCI WebUI.
Highlights of this service pack:
Improved Device Support:
AWS EC2 - Promote EC2 out of beta
Brocade FC Switch Firmware 4.2+ (SSH) - Enhance the performance of portshow by filtering invalid ports
EMC ScaleIO - Support ScaleIO Inventory
EMC VNXe - EMC Unity Performance support
EMC VNXe - FC support in VNXe Gen2 and Unity
HUAWEI OceanStor - Promote OceanStor out of beta
IBM XIV - Add support for A9000(R) FlashSystem
NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP - Support LDAP netgroup
NetApp SolidFire - Support latency for volume, node and cluster
Not impressed with OCI 7.3. All the "Analyze" context menu items were removed from the Java client. You are now forced to use the web client to see port utlization on a host/array/switch which is nowhere near as user friendly as what the Java client was. My biggest gripe is that with that change, we also lose "Contending switch ports", which was a huge help when troubleshooting connectivity and/or congestion issues on the SAN. It's a real shame.
