Report for Hardware resource

Created: 09 Jan 2013 | 5 comments

Just looking for some quick assistance on how to go about running a report to gather information on all managed computers such as their hardware resources.

Trying to view all my computers on the network as a whole to gain what needs to be updated hardware wise.

With the second report I've mentioned, you can get a list of computers that are not the proper architecture, or lack at least n GB of RAM, n CPU speed in GHz, or n GB of free disk space.

Reports > Notification Server Management > Agent > agent request

There are other reports in that same directory that are helpful to validate that agents are communicating with the ns as well.

The Evt_NS_Client_Config_Request table includes the time a computer last checked in.  You can query it using something like:

SELECT vc.Name, MAX(ccr._eventTime) as 'Last Event Data'
FROM vComputer vc
JOIN Evt_NS_Client_Config_Request ccr ON ccr.ResourceGuid=vc.[Guid]
GROUP BY vc.Name
