Quest Software announced the launch of Foglight 6.1, a monitoring and optimization platform for the hybrid enterprise.

Foglight enables businesses to confidently manage their IT infrastructure and databases by providing them with the tools for deep-dive database workload optimization and cloud cost management.

Available now, Foglight 6.1 further strengthens users’ ability to spot and diagnose issues in near-real time, while also reducing operational costs and alert fatigue for IT teams. It is a key solution forming part of Quest’s Data Empowerment portfolio, which aims to address data operations, data protection and data governance for enterprises. With Quest, companies find, understand and use relevant enterprise data assets to make faster, smarter decisions.

“As DevOps teams create, deploy and update enterprise applications, organizations must ensure that application performance does not fall through the cracks,” said Venkat Rajaji, VP of Product Management for Quest ISM. “Nearly 8 in 10 IT decision-makers say their enterprises have maintained or increased in complexity, underscoring the need to simplify ITOps and reduce noise for technical teams. This update will enable our customers to improve application performance, centralize efficient resource allocation in the cloud and reduce security risk across their entire organization.”

Foglight 6.1 key features include:

- New Execution Plan Analysis for MySQL: To analyze and diagnose issues in MySQL database workloads historically, using powerful and flexible multi-dimensional investigations and execution plan analysis

- Notification Management for alarm email configuration: To gain more accuracy and speed in managing alarms, alerting the right people, reducing alarm “noise” and pinpointing key issues

- Password Security: To enable Foglight admins to use increasingly popular gMSA accounts for monitoring SQL Server and operating systems

- User Experience Enhancements in navigation and customization: To allow each user to easily personalize their own experience via Foglight’s UI, adding to improvements made in Foglight’s 6.0 release
