We recently concluded our 2.4 Feature o' the Day series:
That series did not include every new feature in 2.4 and there are more waiting for you to discover in the current 2.4.30 version. Additionally, there are even more new features coming in future versions!
Security Onion 2.4.40 is coming soon and one of the new features is an updated version of SOC Grid with even more visibility into the health of your deployment. You can click the picture to see a larger version.
Compared to previous versions, there are new fields on the top row that show things like memory, storage, CPU, and network usage. In addition to those new metrics, when you expand the row and look at the Node Status section on the left it now includes additional metrics and visualizations.
You can read more about SOC Grid in our documentation:
The first screenshot shows what SOC Grid looks like when running on our SOS hardware appliances (notice the appliance pictures on the right). You can learn more about our hardware appliances at:
