We are announcing the retirement of the backend Performance Investigator (PI) repository, Infobright, and the introduction of a new enhanced PI repository based on SQL Server. We have worked with our customers and based on your feedback we decided to invest in improving PI product quality and capabilities. Customers have asked for better product performance, high availability and disaster recovery capabilities for the PI repository, which Infobright was unable to provide.
Beginning with the upcoming 126.96.36.199 cartridge (current GA target: March, 2020), Infobright will no longer be available, and it will be necessary to move existing agents to the SQL Server PI repository.We have provided a data migration utility for customers who want to keep their historical performance data (see: KB 313191).
For customers who use SQL Server/Oracle cartridge with versions earlier than 188.8.131.52 and would like to continue use Infobright as a backend PI repository, we will keep supporting this configuration until March 2021.
Starting from March 2021, Infobright will no longer be supported by Quest.
Thank you for your continued commitment and loyalty to Quest.
