Lansweeper is capable of scanning workstations with Windows, Unix, Linux and Mac operating systems. All manufacturers including HP, Dell, Acer, Fujitsu, IBM, Lenovo and Apple are supported and can be scanned. The information retrieved varies based on the operating system used by the workstation.
Scanned Workstation Information
The method used to scan workstation information depends on the operating system used by the workstation. Windows workstations are scanned using WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) while Unix, Linux and Mac workstations are scanned using Secure Shell or SSH.
Scanned workstation data includes, but is not limited to:
- Network interfaces
- Serial number
You can view the Linux, Mac and Windows pages with more details regarding these operating systems.
Performance metrics can be of great use in migration projects or to maximize productivity within your company by ensuring nobody has a technical bottleneck. By enabling performance counter scanning, Lansweeper will rescan the asset at set intervals to retrieve performance metrics from CPU, Memory, Disks and Network statistics.
Manage Your Workstations
Manage your workstations by using one of our many built-in reports to analyze hardware, software, or any of the other scanned data. If the built-in reports are not suited for your use case, you can create your own custom reports using Lansweeper's report builder.
