About viewing inventory data in the Resource Manager

You can use the Resource Manager to view all of the inventory data for a single resource. You can view the basic inventory that is gathered from all managed computers. An example of basic inventory is the computer's IP address. You can also view the more detailed data that the Inventory Solution gathers. For example, you can quickly view which operating system a certain computer is running. You can also view the status of that inventory data, such as when the data was last gathered. You also use the Resource Manager to view custom inventory.

For more information, see the topics about using the Resource Manager in the Symantec Management Platform User Guide.

You can view the content of the actual data classes or you can view hardware and software summaries.
