AS if spring isn’t full of enough treats like colourful tulips and chocolate eggs, our good friends at Peer Software have launched an update to its popular PeerLink product.
Version 2.1.3 comprises several changes to enhance existing features and the company has also addressed issues raised by users.
The list of improvements looks like this:
- Enhanced support for NetApp storage devices, including support for Alternate CIFS Share Mappings, better memory management for agents connecting to NetApp devices and assorted NetApp-related performance and stability enhancements;
- Better support for centrally managing agents from the PeerLink hub including the ability to remotely set communication and logging settings and to automatically restart an agent when running low on memory. The amount of memory assigned to a connected agent service can also be set remotely;
- The configuration process for conflict resolution has been simplified. New features added include the ability to truncate milliseconds from timestamp comparisons on two or more files and stronger deletion detection and handling during initial scans.
Sounds good so far? Well, as Jimmy Cricket would say, listen, there’s more…
- PeerLink v2.1.3 offers enhanced folder and file metadata scanning with better memory management and enhanced file filter expressions for excluding and including folders based on folder or path name;
- The product boasts the ability to globally specify non-collaborative file types, ensuring that these types are synchronised in a usable state without file locking functionality;
- It can also ignore real time events generated by one or more usernames for both Windows file servers and NetApp storage devices and detect and/or exclude files and folders that have names containing invalid characters.
This update is free for Purple Rage Software customers on a maintenance contact. Call or email us to find out more.
