Viewing Record Details

The preview pane shows only a quick summary of the audit data associated with the Network Node. To view detailed information, double-click the record.

Computer Details

The Computer [Computer Name] dialog box shows information about audited computers. The information is organized on the following tabs:

  • Overview — This tab shows a summary of computer details, such as computer name, domain or workgroup, operating system, memory size, etc. The Overview tab also displays whether the detected computer is a virtual machine and the host where the virtual machine resides. This information is displayed in the Virtual Machine and the Host fields respectively. You can manually change both the virtual machine status of the computer and the host machine associated with it. For details, see Auditing Individual Network Nodes. The SSD field also shows whether the computer has any solid-state drive (SSD) detected.
  • Configuration — This tab shows the computer's hardware and software information collected during the audit. The data is organized in the following categories: Overview, Hardware, Software, Peripherals, Network, and User. This tab also shows virtual status of the computer collected during the audit and, if applicable, virtualization platform family of the virtual machine. You can see these parameters in the read-only Virtual Machine field and VM Family field respectively.

    NOTE: The Operating System section in the Audit Snapshot Viewer includes (when available) the OEM Information sub-section. This sub-section shows the Windows OEM information retrieved on brand name computers: the manufacturer name, computer model, and other support details specified by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

  • Discovered Installations — This tab displays software installations discovered on the computer during the audit. If you want to view the details of a particular installation, double-click its record to bring up the Software Installation dialog box.

    NOTE: To specify how to discover software installations on computers during the audit, you must configure the Software Discovery options in the Site’s audit source. For details, see Audit Profile Options.

  • Virtual Machines — This tab shows the information about virtual machines running on this host.
  • Custom Data — This tab contains user-defined fields (UDFs), configured for Computers using the Settings app. Use the UDFs to enter any additional information about the current computer. These fields are maintained only manually.

    NOTE: The Custom Data tab appears if you have created at least one user-defined field for Computers. For details, see Field Customization.

  • Attachments — This tab shows and enables you to manage attachments added to the computer. For details, see Help: Attachments.
  • Changes — This tab shows information about changes detected in the computer’s configuration between consecutive audits.

Chromebook Details

The Chromebook [Chromebook Name] dialog box shows information about audited Chromebooks. The data is organized on the following tabs:

  • General — This tab shows the inventory information obtained from the Google Admin Console about the Chromebook.
  • Custom Data — This tab contains user-defined fields (UDFs), configured for Chromebooks using the Settings app. Use the UDFs to enter any additional information about the current Chromebook. These fields are maintained only manually.

    NOTE: The Custom Data tab appears if you have created at least one user-defined field for Chromebooks. For details, see Field Customization.

  • Changes This tab shows information about changes detected in the Chromebook’s configuration between consecutive audits.

Network Device Details

The Network Device [Device Name] dialog box shows information about network devices of different types. The data is organized on the following tabs:

  • General — This tab shows the SNMP information obtained from the audited device.
  • Printer Supplies — This tab appears for network devices detected as printers and displays textual and graphical information about printer supplies, such as ink or toner.

    NOTE: The Printer Supplies tab does not appear for print servers.

    There are two kinds of information that can be displayed on this tab:

    • Supplies that are consumed. Levels of these supplies are visualized with progress bars that start at 100% and gradually decrease. For example, see Toner Cartridges, Transfer Unit, and Fuser in the screenshot above.
    • Receptacles that are filled. Their levels are visualized with progress bars that start at 0% (empty receptacle) and gradually increase. For example, see Cleaner Unit in the secreenshot above.

      NOTE: Information about printer supplies is obtained from the device via SNMP and displayed “as is”. Thus, each printer may have a different set of available information, different units of measurement (thousands of ounces, tenths of milliliters), etc.

  • Network Interfaces— This tab appears for network devices detected as switches. It lists network interfaces of the switch and shows details about devices connected to this switch.

    NOTE: If Alloy Discovery lacks SNMP information on any switch within your organization, contact Alloy Software Technical Support.

    • MAC— This field displays the MAC address of the switch or connected network device.
    • Interface— This field displays the interface of the switch.
    • IP Address— This field displays the IP address of the connected network node.
    • Network Node— This field displays the name used to identify the network device.
    • Seen Date— This field displays the date when the device was last detected within network interface of the switch.
    • Description— This field displays the description of the network interface.
    • Vlan— This field displays the virtual local area network.

    NOTE: To view any network interface details, you can double-click the interface record from the Network Interfaces tab. For details, see Help: Network Interface window.

  • Custom Data — This tab contains user-defined fields (UDFs), configured for Network Devices using the Settings app. Use the UDFs to enter any additional information about the current device. These fields are maintained only manually.

    NOTE: The Custom Data tab appears if you have created at least one user-defined field for Network Devices. For details, see Creating User-Defined Fields.

Discovered Network Node Details

The Node Properties [Node Name] dialog box shows information about discovered network nodes that have not been audited yet. The information is organized on the following tabs:

  • General — This tab shows available details of the current network node.
  • SNMP Data — This tab shows information collected on the network device via SNMP.
