Ok, this sounds a bit technical and it is, but long story short - we have fully rewritten our service for receiving and storing IoT data, and thus brought a huge performance improvements to our platforms.
While testing this, we have done a campaign with MachNation and proved that all instances of our IoT platforms are fully capable of catering at least 10000 devices, each sending a device state each minute (approximately 6 asset states per minute).
Roughly speaking, we estimate that we are now at least 28 times more performant than before, and we are really excited and happy about this!
Next to this, new State Listener is much more stable than the old one, reducing potential delays and lost data to minimum.
Up until now, when you would have a watchdog running on a device, and you would be viewing devices list, you might see that LAST UPDATED label says
a few seconds ago thinking that the device is working properly - only to find out that it was the watchdog asset being updated 😟
We know that this was quite frustrating, so we fixed it 🙂
Now, on Devices list page, LAST UPDATED label will reflect all the device assets, while ignoring Watchdog asset.
This one is relevant for Partner organisations. If you are using Device types API to manage your device types, you can now authorise those requests using your Partner token.
We recommend you update your API collections, and change the authorisation from User token to Partner token.
