Anyone here experienced with OSC Inventory or similar?
Open computers and software inventory is an assets management solution. Since 2001, OCS Inventory has been looking to make hardware and software inventory of computers more efficient. OCS Inventory queries its agents to know the soft and hard composition of each machine, each server. OCS Inventory also queries the network to discover the active elements that cannot receive an agent. Since version 2.0, OCS Inventory integrates the functionality of SNMP scans.
The main purpose of this integration is to complement the data collected by ipdiscover. Using SNMP scans will allow you to insert a lot of information about your network hardware: printers, switches, computers (which do not have an OCS agent installed), etc. SNMP scans will be performed by OCS agents based on IP addresses collected by ipdiscover.
The remote deployment
OCS Inventory includes the package deployment feature, in order not to control, but to ensure uniformity of the software environments present on the network. From the central management server, you can upload the packets that will be downloaded using HTTP/HTTPS and launched by the agent on the client computer. OCS remote deployment is configurable so that sent packets impact the network’s quality of service as little as possible. OCS is used as a deployment tool on parks with more than 150 000 machines.
Support for many operating systems including:
Microsoft Windows, Linux, BSD, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX, HP-UX, MacOS X, Android
