View Power Utilization Percentage

Rack Power Utilization percentage has been added as a visualization option in the 2D and 3D layout view, and under Information -> Sensors.

TLS Certificate

Free TLS Cert Checker

During a chat last week with a potential customer, they voiced their issue managing TLS certificate expirations with their current DCIM provider. While this is not available in the Hyperview platform, the pain is real and the ask is not too big. With that in mind, our team went ahead and created a free utility to help solve the issue. TLS Cert Checker is available in our GitHub.
