im after some advise on what software people currently use.
Im after an installable client that will monitor all aspects of a computer or servers hardware, software and attached perpherials (print jams etc). Then i want to be emailed alerts and also be able to check on everything from a website. Clients must be free and not thethered to a server as lots of computers are off the active directory, some not even part of an active directory.
Long story short i was starting to bring build clients onboard using the GFI Max (now LogicMax) but this month they have annouced a minimum charge of £50 per month regargless of current or future installed computers. i would of acheived this in around 6 months but they are not interested in smaller customres by the looks of things.
Things im looking to be checked are similar to the following
HDD Smart checks
Widows updates installing okay
so anything that anyone can suggest the better. happy with opensource/free, ideally pay monthly per PC/service used but if need to i can cope with an annual client fee.
help and advise is much appreciated.
