Hey guys,

this looks like a great plugin, but I see it is deprecated.

Could you please be as kind as to share why is it deprecated?


Thank you!

Solution

Hi Rui,

With the increased offering from OutSystems for Enterprise solutions in the cloud, this component "Infrastructure Monitor", which monitors infrastructure/hardware/server and requires specific configurations in the server that are not available in Enterprise solution in the cloud, makes less sense to exist and to be maintained.

If companies are running OutSystems on-premises then most likely they will have their own setup and tools for monitoring server/hardware/infrastructure performance.

In terms of application analytics (performance), both LifeTime and ServiceCenter provide enough data (menu Analytics).

I believe these are the main reasons the component "Infrastructure Monitor" is deprecated since OS10.

You still can download it and install it, but you will have to maintain it yourself.

Thank you for the swift answer Tiago!


Note that I've asked OutSystems to respond, so I hope they can confirm or elaborate on Tiago's answer.

Thanks Kilian! Noted.
