New

New Navigation Menu and Landing Page Available to All

The new Navigation Menu and Landing Page are available to all users in 11.0.

We have a created a new landing experience, which includes shortcuts to information about people, hardware, applications, and a carousel that shows digital experience insights from your data.

The Navigation Menu provides navigation throughout SysTrack. It is persistent throughout SysTrack and you only see applications that you have access to. By default, the applications open in the same tab.

You can also add a custom logo to the Navigation Menu.

Intelligence Package

The Intelligence Package contains the following features. You need to purchase the package to access the functionality. Contact your Account team for more information.

  • Anomalies

    This functionality offers a machine-learning model that detects anomalies in a customer’s environment. By detecting issues early, customers can fix problems before they become widespread.

  • Intelligent Support

    Intelligent Support harnesses the combined power of generative AI and SysTrack’s sensors to aid users in the troubleshooting process.

  • Natural Language Query Builder

    NOTE: You must update your agents to 11.0 to use this feature.

    SysTrack's Natural Language Query Builder (NLQ) feature enables you to use simple, natural language to query your SysTrack data, eliminating the need for programming knowledge. The Natural Language Query feature uses easy-to-understand prompts to lead you through the process of querying your Central (condensed) or Agent SysTrack databases.

Control Sensor Visibility in Assist

You can now customize which sensors will show in Assist with the Add to Assist - Detected Issues option. This has been added to the Visibility controls and bulk actions in Sensor Management. We have also reduced the sensors showing out of the box in both Assist and the Self-Help app.

Thermals Data Analysis

SysTrack includes a Thermals series, which collects thermal temperature data for the CPU and other thermal zones of your systems. This data collection works on Windows, Linux, and Mac systems. When your Support personnel need to troubleshoot a user's system because of poor performance or complaints of running too hot, they can view the Thermals series for the user's system to easily see the temperature trends and whether they indicate that the system's temperature has been unusual or has remained within an acceptable range. You can view the Thermals data in Resolve's Black Box Tool and Graphing Tool.

IMPORTANT: You must update your agents to 11.0 to use this feature.

Updated Graph Colors

Default graph colors have been updated for increased contrast and accessibility. Any graphs that indicate health score will continue to use the green, neon green, yellow, and red colors.
