  • Netflow has been added.
  • Speedfusion can now use an external TCP accelerator

Look at these beauties! So much more detail is now available to assist with SpeedFusion trouble shooting and monitoring – b-e-a-utiful!

I’ll update this post as I dig deeper into 8.1.0 but it looks like a great evolution.
