What is/are: New in NSS 9.61 SR2 (Release Notes)


  • Summary information in customized report displays
    Summary information has been available in the NSS Console dashboards for some time. Now administrators and users can add summary information into their own customized NSS Console report widgets. This further strengthens the ability to create custom report layouts designed to the needs of specific audiences within the organization.
  • Path labels in NSS Console tables
    By labeling paths with information extracted from Active Directory, or using a property of the path name itself, customers are able to create report views that match their organization, rather than their file-system - invaluable for users who need to quickly understand which file shares they are managing. Now NSS Console widgets can include path labels as a column for extended use of this powerful feature.
  • Scalability, Performance and Stability
    As with all service releases, NSS 9.61 SR2 introduces incremental improvements in scalability, performance and stability. One of the more obvious changes in this area is a performance improvement in how NSS writes scanned data to its SQL database. NSS 9.61 SR2 cuts storing time by up to 66%, offering significant reductions in total scan time for customers managing large numbers of shallow paths, and a smaller but still valuable speed increase for customers managing other types of environments.
