Updates

WiFi Access Point BSSID + OEM manufacturer now shown (except Monterey)

Improvement
This helps to spot roaming even when 2 or more APs are on the same channel. It also tells you the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), so you can see what type of radio equipment or vendor an agent is connecting to.

Note: Unfortunately, macOS Monterey 12.x requires sudo access to reveal the BSSID. Previous macOS versions did not. The PanSift agent runs with user-level privileges only to increase trust and confidence.

Better Automatic Agent Sync When Claiming Buckets

Improvement
Now, when claiming a bucket, the agent sync will run automatically. This makes onboarding simpler and time to value faster.

Agent v0.4.3 Better agent user input handling + lighthouse probing for old macOS machines with cert issues.

Update
Please update your agents to the latest version v0.4.3. Improvements in agent configuration display and user input validation when manually updating settings. Fixes for older macOS with ISRG Root X1 certificate trust issues as PanSift depends on cURL.

Better Internet and DNS outage detection and reporting. Improved host views.

Improvement
Rather than windowing or subdividing time ranges (which can inflate outage numbers), now only discrete outages are shown for Internet or DNS outages. Additionally, the "Last Seen" time and "Machine UUID" have been added to the "Host Details" section in the Agent view.

Agent v0.4.2 Better VPN route detection.

Update
Please update your agents to the latest version v0.4.2 or run "Config Update/Scripts" from your PS agent menu to get better IPv4 and IPv6 VPN route detection. 

Caching on Insights dashboard + auto-linking.

Improvement
Tweaked the dashboard caching to reduce the frequency of live queries going to the TSDB (Time Series Database). Additionally added a bug fix for the latest insight direct link (in the agents index view).

Agent v0.4.1 "MCS in 2.4GHz" on macOS 11.x fix

Update
Please update your agents to the latest version v0.4.1 or run "Config Update/Scripts" from your PS agent menu to address a bug where macOS 11.x reports MCS of 0 continually on 2.4GHz channels. 

Agent v0.4.0 "Restart Metrics" menu fix.

Update
Please update your agents to the latest version v0.4.0 to address a bug in the menu option when "Restarting Metrics". A workaround is to quit the agent via "Preferences/Quit" and then reopen the agent. Unfortunately, the dynamic script update mechanism in the agent menu does not rectify this. Please update your agents to the latest version.

Permalinks for time based views and attributes

New
You can now share URLs with other users on your account.  They specify certain time ranges and/or attributes for fast linking and information sharing. Any current view can be linked to via the "Share Permalink(s)" shortcut on the left hand side of an agent view. It also dynamically updates as you browse for ease of use.

Geolocation for IPs

New
There is now a "Geo" tab in Agents that shows you the locations (IPs) on a map that an agent has been using. This is handy for identifying the breakout points of VPNs, enterprise networks, or just ISP allocations per city and country.
