Published date: 13 August, 2021
Raw data view improvements
The Raw data view has been enhanced to enable multiple selection by Message type. This lets you filter the view so you can see command request and response events or device connected and disconnected events together.
Last connect or disconnect timestamp in device details
You can now view a device's connection state on the Devices page. To see the latest connection event, go to the list of devices on the Devices page. Hover over a device name to see the Connected or Disconnected state, the event’s timestamp, and other device information.
IoT Edge system module commands
Monitor and manage IoT Edge deployments from IoT Central using commands included in the IoT Edge system modules. The commands enabled in this release include RestartModule command which lets you remotely restart a failed or unhealthy module on an IoT Edge device. You can also use a command to view logs returned from IoT Edge system modules.
IoT Edge device monitoring
You can now monitor your IoT Edge fleet remotely using Azure Monitor or IoT Central and built-in metrics integration. To enable the public preview feature of Azure IoT Edge monitoring solution on your device, add the metrics-collector module to your deployment and configure it to collect and transport module metrics to Azure Monitor or to IoT Central. Built-in metrics and curated visualizations let you quickly and easily analyze the efficiency of your solution. Capture metrics such as message latencies and throughput, both between local modules and upstream communication.
