The module allows you to get detailed information about the state of hardware hardware sensors, such as processor temperature, disk usage, motherboard voltage, and other indicators for a certain period of time.
Displaying information in the module is possible only after receiving data from the installed resident agent on the remote device and when the equipment sensors polling mode is activated in the agent profile.
The resident agent service that is running continuously polls the sensors of the hardware components, after which this data is compressed into time-stamped packets.
Each package contains averaged values for the minimum, average and maximum readings from the sensors for a certain time period.
When a certain number of packets is reached, the data is grouped into a separate file, which can be sent by the agent and imported into the main module of the program.
The main difference between displaying data in the Sensors mode and displaying general information on signals is that the installed resident agent continuously collects data from sensors, while a regular scan from the main program window will display information on sensors collected only at the time of scanning.
This functionality is not real-time monitoring of equipment, but allows you to identify deviations in hardware elements that occurred in a given period. All detected deviations from the set values will be separately highlighted directly in the reports of the Sensors mode.
Description and purpose of elements
Select a device or group of devices from the network tree and specify the time range for displaying data statistics on the control panel.
Optionally, specify display by
In the Date Range mode, you can choose between two arbitrary calendar dates, while the Elapsed Time mode allows you to set the time interval between a specified number of weeks, days, hours, or minutes from the current date.
The top panel contains a search field for reports, as well as a menu for copying and exporting them to text files, XLSX for a table view or CSV files.
The main parameters for displaying data are located on the sidebar. Reporting can be done as a summary of the main sensors, as a tree for all sensors or as a spreadsheet.
In the table view mode, the function of grouping data by the selected time range is available.
In the sidebar, select the type of equipment on which the sensor is located.
In the tree view or table report mode, select the type of sensor for which the report will be generated.
Files containing data packets from hardware sensors have the following name:
Operation with sensors
After selecting the location of the sensors and their types, the program will build a report based on the specified values.
If you need to set signals for any of the sensors, click on theSensor Alerts option in the sidebar. A settings window will open in which you can set the sensor thresholds for all available hardware.
If there are several created profiles of a resident agent in this window, it is possible to select and individually configure the threshold values for each of the sensors separately.
In the summary view of the main sensors and in the tree view, a menu for filtering by detected problems is available. Using the device filtering menu on the toolbar, select the desired filter and TNI will build a report on all devices, display devices with problems or display problems only.
If you need to add a sensor to exclusions, select the desired equipment sensor and click the optionAssistant is activated. Hidden sensors in reports are displayed in light gray.Add sensor to exclusions in the context menu. The sensor added to exceptions will not be taken into account when executing and processing Signals, and will not be displayed when the
Adding an excluded sensor back to the report is done through the context menu by clicking the optionRemove sensor from exclusion.
If you want to completely remove the display of hidden sensors from the report, go to Settings - Reports, subsection Other and deactivate the corresponding option.
If necessary, you can quickly go to the device profile editing menu by right-clicking on the device panel and selecting the appropriate option from the context menu.
