The development team at Nagios has been hard at work and has today released Nagios XI 2014r1.4. The latest release of the award winning solution comes with many feature enhancements, bug fixes, and increased security.

With the most recent stable release of Nagios Core (4.0.8) under the hood, Nagios XI 2014r1.4 receives massive performance increases resulting in significantly lower and smoother CPU usage, especially in large environments. (see image below) These improvements make Nagios XI ideal for monitoring any size infrastructure.

Additional CCM upgrades include aesthetic enhancements, updated logging functionality, and improved sorting capabilities.
