It’s been a while since the last Meshcentral report, so I wanted to give people a status update before I head over on a week vacation. The team’s been hard at work on all sorts of improvements and new features. In this report, I want to focus on just a few core improvements.
- Intel AMT Control Mode. This is a long overdue improvement, Meshcentral now displays the currently configured Intel AMT control mode for Intel AMT 6.1 and above. This feature is new with Mesh Agent v1.82. This will help people determine how to make best use of Intel AMT for each machine.
- EHBC detection. I don’t have a screen shot below, but starting with Mesh Agent v1.81, if a machine is un-provisioned and supports EHBC (Embedded Host Based Provisioning), this will show on the Intel AMT status line of Meshcentral.com. It helps determine if HBP can be used to go directly into admin mode. If Intel AMT supports EHBC, doing HBP with Meshcentral will automatically make the remote machine go in admin mode.
- Internalization & French Localization. For the past few weeks, I have been working nights on making the Meshcentral web site internationalizable to other languages (which is most of the work) and did much progress on localization to French. Internalization work is about 75% done, localization to French is 65% done. If you change your browser to French and go on Meshcentral.com, you will see the site show up in French!
- Performance improvements. As the load of the web site keeps increasing, we keep finding ways to improve the sites performance. In the last week, me made significant improvements to how and when Meshcentral makes database access, significantly improving the overall performance of the site. This said, there is still more work to do done in this area. Meshcentral is peaking at nearly 6000 machines connected at the same time each day.
Comments and feedback appreciated,
