Feature Enhancements

The following feature enhancements are implemented in this firmware update:

    • This page is divided into a number of sections as follows:
      • GSLB Service Status:
        • Boot time:
          • This is the time the GSLB feature was enabled or the last LoadMaster boot time.
        • Last configuration:
          • The time the configuration was last changed.
      • FQDN Statistics:
        • Details of the FQDN domains configured including name, IP Address, number of requests per second being received and the total request count.
      • Queries:
        • Information on the Query type and the number of request received for that type.
      • DNS Request Information:
        • Information on the type, description and number of requests received.
    • REST and PowerShell API commands have been created to display these statistics. 

Issues Resolved

PD-12836

An issue where the defined netmask for an additional static route on any interface when added gets defaulted to /64 has been fixed.

PD-12609

LoadMaster VLM GSLB functionality has been fixed in Azure.

PD-12450

Log partition Disk Usage on the LoadMaster WUI under Statistics >> Real Time Statistics is now available when using the REST and PowerShell API commands.

PD-12357

Previously, the LM with Allow Multi-Interface Access set would not allow access to the WUI on any port other than the default port 443.

Now, this has been resolved and the LM WUI can be accessed on any set port on any interface once Multi-Interface Access is set.

PD-12275

Previously, the LDAP response timeout could not be configured and was defaulted to 5 seconds. 

Now, the LDAP timeout can be configure within the range of 5 to 60 secs.
