Nexthink V6.2 comes with 10 new aggregates to get better and faster answers out of the product.

Application stability

These two aggregates can be used to identify your least stable applications, even if they are used by just a few users. These aggregates are available for the following objects:

  • Users
  • Devices
  • Applications
  • Executables
  • Binaries
Field Group Type Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile black.png
Application crash ratio Errors Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the number of application crashes per 100 executions.
Application not responding event ratio Errors Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the number of application not responding events per 100 executions.

Incoming and outgoing network traffic per device

These two aggregates can be used to identify applications that are generating a large amount of network traffic, even if they are used by just a few users. These aggregates are available for the following objects:

  • Applications
  • Executables
  • Binaries
  • Ports
  • Destinations
Field Group Type Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile black.png
Incoming network traffic per device Volume Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the incoming network traffic divided by the number of devices.
Outgoing network traffic per device Volume Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the outgoing network traffic divided by the number of devices.

Incoming and outgoing web traffic per device

These two aggregates can be used to identify applications that are generating a large amount of web traffic, even if they are used by just a few users. These aggregates are available for the following objects:

  • Applications
  • Executables
  • Binaries
  • Ports
  • Destinations
  • Domains
Field Group Type Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile black.png
Incoming web traffic per device Volume Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the incoming web traffic divided by the number of devices.
Outgoing web traffic per device Volume Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the outgoing web traffic divided by the number of devices.

Total network and web traffic

These two aggregates can be used to compute the total web or network traffic. These aggregates are available for the following objects:

  • Users
  • Devices
  • Applications
  • Executables
  • Binaries
  • Ports
  • Destinations
  • Domains (only web traffic)
Field Group Type Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile black.png
Total network traffic Volume Aggregate Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Total network traffic (incoming and outgoing)
Total web traffic Volume Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Total web traffic (incoming and outgoing)

Changes in boot and logon duration

There are now two different ways to look at boot and logon duration.

Aggregate values

The following values represent the duration of boots and logons which happened during the timeframe of the investigation. If no boot or logon happened during this timeframe, then a dash (-) is reported.

Field Group Type Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile black.png
Average system boot duration Startup Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the average system boot duration.
Average user logon duration Startup Aggregate Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the average user logon duration.

Baseline values

The downside of the two aggregate values presented above is that if no boots or logon happened for a device during the investigation period, then no value is reported. For this reason we provide two additional values representing the moving average of boot and logon times. The values do not depend on the time frame specified in the investigation.

Field Group Type Windows black.png Mac black.png Mobile black.png
System boot duration baseline Startup Field Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the system boot duration averaged over the last boots. In the calculation, recent boots weigh more than older boots (exponentially weighted moving average).
User logon duration baseline Startup Field Windows black.png Mac gray disabled.png Mobile gray disabled.png
Indicates the user logon duration averaged over the last logons. In the calculation, recent logons weigh more than older logons (exponentially weighted moving average).
