We have been busy working on exMon 3.9 with most of our focus being on stability and usability improvements.
Below are the improvements we made but first we would like to point out our blog posts about:
– How to prioritize and assess which checks to implement in exMon
– How to structure email alert flow in exMon.
They are the first two parts of our series about best practices when implementing exMon Continuous Monitoring.
Here are the improvements we made in exMon 3.9:
If you have same or similar data in multiple databases, for example a Point of sales database in each of your stores, then creating tests results in lots of duplication.
In exMon 3.9 we introduce Data Provider Groups. With Data Provider Groups you can add all your stores into a group and create tests that will validate each data provider in the group.
With this you can create a single test that monitors that product prices are correct in all your stores.
You can read more in our blog post about Data Provider Groups.
exMon 3.8 came with support for more complex process groups with sub steps and better way to control what happens on failure in each step.
exMon 3.9 improves the editing experience a lot with more intuitive controls for adding steps, moving steps and moving objects between steps.
