Quietly released today was an announcement that R70.1 EA (early availability) is now public…well sort of.

Upcoming features in R70.1:

Hardware Health Monitoring Capabilities

  • RAID Health: Monitor the health of the disks in the RAID
    array via SNMP.
  • Sensors: Monitor fan speed, voltages, and temperatures on
