ProView Management Pack version 1.0.1.1

For the ProView Management Pack update, we’ve made multiple adjustments and changes. We’ve optimized the speed of saving and loading dashboards and made it possible to add PowerShell script counters to your drawings. Using graphs, the previous version of the ProView Management Pack sometimes would not show the correct configured period and time zone. This issue has been corrected in our latest update. Furthermore, we’ve adjusted the monitoring state shape as it would sometimes not provide the correct health state.
