rxInventory 3.8 now allows to thin out historical data to improve performance and reduce the amount of data. For better overview and security new views provide local users and groups – e.g. to clarify local administrators. The introduction of a device class for acquired switches is helpful in mapping the topology. In addition to these and other improvements, there is now a new query type for viewing the entered license packs at one glance. Users of older versions are recommended to install the update.
