FieldView Solutions’ new FieldView 4.0 DCIM tool adds new drill-down and reporting capabilities to help data center managers control energy usage across distributed facilities. Among the new features are the Site Metrics Ribbon, which allows users to drill down by country, state, and location and view information such as server heat maps, power loads and diesel fuel generator fuel levels.
A critical polling agent allows administrators to select high-priority devices for high-frequency updates, which can now be queried using published APIs or the ODBC standard. Also, the program’s Web-based interface has been redesigned and includes a new analytics and reporting portal.
