Support for Aternity Web Activity Creator (beta)

Agent for End User Devices 9.2.1 or later supports Aternity Web Activity Creator (beta), a new product which allows you to easily and intuitively create custom activities for managed web applications directly from your browser, using our interactive browser plugin.

To try this new product, contact the Aternity Beta Team.

New Monitored Attributes

Agent for End User Devices 9.2.x now reports additional network traffic volumes as part of page load events (WPM).

It also monitors the following additional device attributes:

Field Description
Wifi BSSID

(From Agent 9.2 or Agent for Mac 2.3) Displays the ID (MAC address) of the wireless access point, which the device currently uses to connect to a WiFi network.

Wifi Channel

(From Agent 9.2 or Agent for Mac 2.3) Displays the channel number which your device uses to connect to the WiFi router. Use this to ensure channels do not overlap one another in the same physical space. Your network performance significantly drops if a nearby WiFi router uses an overlapping channel with the same network speed.

Wifi SSID

(From Agent 9.2, or Agent for Mac 2.0 and mobile) Displays the name of the WiFi network where the device currently connects.

Additional Enhancements

  • You can now check the resource usage (PRC) of Skype for Business or Lync and the device's resource usage as a whole (HRC) at the exact time when a user performs an activity. This allows you to correlate resource usage with the performance of an activity, by viewing dashboards like Activity Resource Correlation.

  • The Agent now automatically deploys the Aternity Extension for Chrome while running the setup.

  • Aternity Recorder now displays video using the FFMPEG engine by default, offering better capture on different screen resolutions, and better compatibility with multiple monitors.

  • New look and feel for the Aternity Recorder.
