  Features

  • Browser extension for Safari 
    Cloud-application metering for Safari is now supported. When cloud-application metering is enabled in Snow Inventory Admin Console, the MacOS agent monitors SaaS applications accessed through Safari via a browser extension installed on the target machine. The agent gathers metering data for SaaS applications running in Safari, as well as the name of the browser. This data is packaged together with the normal inventory scan of the target machine and sent to Snow Inventory Server for storage and processing.

Corrections

  • The agent will no longer report a new login event for a user when xMetering is enabled and a new process is executed within the user context (PRB0041592).
  • The agent will no longer generate a file with extension .met_invalid when processing invalid metering data. (PRB0042371).
  • Significantly reduced the memory used by the xMetering process when recording a large amount of information in the log files (PRB0042292).
