What is/are: New in NSS 9.61 SR1 (Release Notes)


  • Connecting Reports with Action : 'Go To Path' for IE users
    NSS 9.61 SR1 introduces the ability for users to move directly from reports in the NSS Console to file system shares in Windows Explorer. Having identified a top-level path where a large amounts of old, prohibited or miss-located data exists, users can immediately open Windows Explorer at that path and begin taking action to remedy the situation. Northern understands the importance of making reports actionable, so report users can efficiently turn insight into action - this is a primary focus area for NSS Console development.
  • Drill-down in NSS Console: The Single Path View
    Now report users can quickly access additional information about a path they are interested in. The Single Path View displays information such as growth rates, largest files, data age distribution, oldest files, file type group and file owner distribution. Using this deeper level of insight, coupled with the ability to directly access the file system from the NSS Console, report users are able to efficiently manage the data they are responsible for.
  • NetApp ONTAP 8.3 - HDS HNAS 12.3
    NSS 9.61 SR1 is the recommended version for all customer installations. However the version includes important changes which make it a required version for customers managing NetApp Data ONTAP 8.3 and HDS HNAS 12.3 devices.
  • Performance and Scalability
    As a service release, NSS 9.61 SR1 includes the expected performance and scalability evolutions. Customers can expect significant improvements in the speed with which the NSS Console displays summary information and in the population of data tables, also the total time required to produce custom reports will be noticeably reduced.
