A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog regarding Microsoft's upcoming Beta 3 release of Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) which will be replacing Microsoft ISA server. Well, it's now been released and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center.
It sounds like Threat Management Gateway (TMG), the new re-branded version of ISA Server, has been a popular topic at this years TechEd event in the US. According to the latest blog from TMG's Product Unit Manager, David B. Cross, Beta 3 will be released in the next couple of weeks. As for the full release, David says that they are still on track for Q4 this calendar year.
We've been doing some work of late to make Vantage take advantage of multi-cpu and multi-core processors. It looks like we've improved the performance of importing more than one log file by around 50%, and the most common reporting scenarios by around 30%. Before we release this build into the wild, I'd like to give it as much field testing as possible. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this build...
We’ve issued a bunch of auto updates for nearly all WebSpy products today Of particular note is a fix to the Vantage range: · Fix: Improved partition matching when filtering by a date range This will benefit you if you're running reports with a date range filter such as last week or yesterday (which is pretty much everyone), and are using the default storage partitioning scheme of "Date" (again... pretty much everyone).
