Aviatrix CoPilot Release Notes

This section describes new features and enhancements for Aviatrix CoPilot software releases.

For information about Aviatrix CoPilot image releases, see Aviatrix CoPilot Image Release Notes.

CoPilot Release 1.5.1 (1/12/2022)

  • (Performance) Performance Charts now have cross hairs that are synced across all visible charts for easy correlation between metrics.
  • (Topology) Run VPC/VNET/VCN diagnostics and submit them to Aviatrix Support from Topology. From Topology, click on any VPC/VNET/VCN in a topology map, and then click DIAG in the node properties pane.
  • (Notifications>Configure) Use new input box to type in a value (instead of using the slider) for configuring notification thresholds.
  • Performance improvements.

If you deploy Aviatrix CoPilot image version 1.5.1 from the marketplace, the following disk volume and auto-scaling features are now available:

  • New disk (volume) support — You can now allocate data disks (volumes) to your Aviatrix CoPilot deployment to be used for expandable storage. During instance creation in the marketplace, you can attach a data disk (data volume) to be used for CoPilot storage. When you deploy the instance, the initial setup process will automatically detect the disk/volume you attached during instance creation and format and attach your disks (a logical disk/volume is created from all physical disks). As your storage needs increase later (after deploying), you can also add more disks (volumes) as needed. See CoPilot Disk (Volume) Management for more information.
  • Auto-scaling memory support — CoPilot now supports automatic memory sizing for the ETL and datastore based on the physical memory of the instance at boot. New base images will default to these automatic settings, but existing deployments will keep their current configuration unless updated. Memory settings are still located under Settings > Configuration > Options.

CoPilot Release 1.5.0 (1/12/2022)

  • ThreatIQ map in dashboard — The CoPilot Dashboard now includes the ThreatIQ map showing any threats over the last 24 hours.

  • New gateway diagnostic features

    You can now perform the following diagnostic tasks for Aviatrix gateways (from Topology, click on any gateway in a topology map, and then click DIAG in the node properties pane):

    • (TRACEPATH tab) Discover the MTU on the path (if router supports it).
    • (TRACELOG tab) Upload a gateway’s tracelog directly to Aviatrix Support. The controller and gateway tracelog is uploaded and the support team notified.
    • (SERVICE ACTIONS tab) Check the status of gateway services and restart services.
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes.

Release 1.4.9.3 (12/28/2021)

  • UI improvements.
    • You can now open Aviatrix Controller from CoPilot. From the CoPilot dashboard, click the Apps icon in the action bar, and then select Controller. The controller opens in a new browser tab.
    • Improvements were made to the ThreatIQ dashboard.
  • Performance improvements.

Releases 1.4.9.1, 1.4.9.2

  • Bug fix Minor bug fixes.

Release 1.4.9

  • New: Inventory Reports You can now create customized, detailed reports for all or specific inventory (resources managed by Aviatrix Controller) running across your multi-cloud network. To create a custom report, you answer questions that guide you to include only the information you want in the report. Each time you specify your criteria, the PDF report view updates in real time in an adjacent pane. You first specify the cloud provider(s) to include information about a single cloud or multiple clouds. You then specify the regions you have resources in that you want to include. You can further specify the VPCs/VNETs/VCNs in the region(s) and drill down further to specify the resource types (for example, gateways and instances). You can save and download the report. Currently, you cannot save a report filter.
  • Enhancement (ThreatGuard) Now only users logged in to CoPilot who have Admin/Firewall Admin permissions can enable/disable ThreatGuard blocking.
  • Enhancement (ThreatGuard) Selective Threat Blocking. You can now be selective about which VPCs/VNets/VCNs block threat IPs when ThreatGuard blocking is enabled. By default, all VPCs/VNets/VCNs block when ThreatGuard blocking is enabled. You can then use the Allow/Deny List to specify which ones will not block.
  • Enhancement (Topology) Support for filtering on your own tags you created in the CSP (supported for tags added to gateways only at this time, not instances).
  • Enhancement (Egress) For Egress, CoPilot now shows Rule and Action when a request hits a rule.
