In order to ensure that we are able to offer the latest features to our customers it is necessary that the Vyopta Data Collector be upgraded when it has reached the end of its supported lifetime.
Vyopta has adopted a policy of supporting data collector release of the current GA (General Availability) release and two (2) previous GA releases. For example, if the current GA release is at version 4.8.7 then both version 4.8.6 and 4.8.5 will also be supported - older releases will not be supported.
Once a collector has had a GA release there will be a 30 day grace period for performing any necessary upgrades of collectors that have newly reached end of support.
When a data collector has reached the end of its supported lifetime (as defined above) Vyopta will be unable to assist customers with collection issues until such time as the collector is upgraded to a supported version.
