This forum is used to centralized feature requests and ideas for Fusioninventory, an opensource inventory and software deployment tool.
is any possible to get by agent all info from hdd S.M.A.R.T. and with
compare with drivedb.h ( smartmontools drive database file). Info from
fast smart hdd test should be sent to glpi and put to disk info. This
info should be stored last 3 or more test and compare potential
indicators of imminent electromechanical failure.
When something wrong will starts with disk (potential failure) for
instance Reallocated Sectors Count or Read Error Rate grow then
technician should be inform that something wrong aproach. Even fusion in glpi can autocreate ticket with information problem with disk komp etc....
Return the version of Windows 10 running on the computer (1511,1607 or 1703)
AFAIK, if your snmp devices is not supported, or correctly detected you have to report it in Github and maybe someone would add it.
It would be great to use some kind of templates. where running an SNMPWalk you could identify the right OID, and ask fusioninventory agent to retrieve them for this particular model.
A central repository where the community could share their templates, would be great.
Right now, I'm thinking about printers, which I can get total printed pages easily, but not BW, and color, because fusion always return 0 in all of this fields.
It could be used for every other device, though.
(cf my post on fusioninventory forum here : http://forum.fusioninventory.org/viewtopic.php?id=3462)
Actually when you change computer's name, fusioninventory agent name don't change automatically.
You need to delete /var directory to do that.
It would be nice to implement this.
Before FusionInventory-Agent v2.3.18 the tasks that the agent executed and its order were hard-code defined: first the task Inventory, afterwards the task Deploy, afterwards the task NetDiscovery, and so on (sorry, this probably isn't the real order); the only way to modify that was installing or not the tasks or making use of --no-task option, that was all. But FusionInvenotry-Agent v2.3.18 changed this behaviour.
FusionInventory-Agent v2.3.18 introduced the new --tasks option with which it was possible not only to indicate which tasks to run but, also, in what order. But not only that, it allowed to run a task more than one time.
The --tasks option allows to do interesting things. Regarding to deploy packages, for example, it now allows to maintain an inventory more faithful to reality since it isn't necessary to wait for the agent refresh the inventory data so that deployed packages appear in FusionInventory for GLPI.
Now it's enough to set tasks=Inventory,Deploy,Inventory,... (don't forget the last three dots; it means exactly "and the other tasks") to be sure than a) FusionInventory for GLPI going to have got an up to date information before to try an hipothetical or possible Deploy task execution and b) FusionInventory for GLPI going to have got an up to date information after that hipothetical or possible Deploy task execution.
The new --tasks option introduces the advantage of modify the task schedules behaviour of the FusionInventory-Agent but it also introduces a side effect not so desirable. The side effect is an inefficient task execution and waste of resources. This is an example.
Set the --tasks option to Inventory,Deploy,Inventory,... (that is our configuration for more than fifteen thousand computers) is a good choice whether you have planned deploy packages because with it it's possible to maintain an inventory more faithful to reality. And yes, this is true, but you pay a high price in consumption of CPU, time and bandwidth, and not only in the side of the client. Why?. It's very simple. Most of time, the FusionInventory-Agent will not have to do any Deploy task so it will run two consecutive Inventory tasks with practically the same result; and that is a waste of resources.
But also it's possible to set the --tasks option to esoteric configurations like this: Inventory,Inventory,Inventory,.... And yes, I know this is a stupidity, but this stupidity may be possible.
I have thought about this problem during some time and I think that there could be a simple solution for both problems (that really are the same): keep track of what has been the last executed task and skip the execution of the next one whether it is of the same kind.
That is all. Regards,
System Patch management
- Allow fusioninventory to list (packages/windows updates) that are available for update.
- Allow fusioninventory to list installed updates
- Allow fusioninventory to apply available patches
- Apply policy to device to automate patch installation window (day, hour) + reboot at the end.
Allow fusioninventory to list system patches and select/apply them for installation.
Allow fusioninventory to apply a policy to a system that schedules installation of patches (possibly allow a system reboot at the end) (for example,
I am suggesting the FusionInventory for GLPI could display/give access to the x last inventories, instead of only the last one like as currently.
Why this suggestion?:
I needed to get the serial number of a recently removed hard disk drive.
Since an inventory task ran after disk removal, the "Hard drive" section of the "Components" tab (in GLPI) did not show the disk anymore (nor it's serial number).
Being components, they don't seem to keep log of serial number (no entry in "Historical" tab of "Item - Hard drive link", page /front/item_deviceharddrive.form.php?id=xxx).
The "Import information" tab of the computer only displayed the last one.
How would it help?
If the FusionInventory for GLPI could keep previous (raw) inventory files, one could read them and get access to historical data that GLPI does not keep track of.
Questions it raises (with possible answers):
- How many inventory to keep? The number should be configurable: « Keep x number of inventory », « Keep inventories of the last x days »
- How to consult/access any previous inventory? A link to download the raw (compressed?) file would meet the minimum viable feature. But if the user interface could load an inventory into the inventory viewer located in "Import information" tab (the "Last inventory" table) and offer the user a input (eg. dropdown) to select which inventory he wants to display, that would be great.
Basicaly create a mail notification when fusion inventory add a new asset. At the start will be nice to alert about new computers.
Sometimes mostly on Windows, a reboot has to be done before or after processing a package.
add a possibitly to order a clean reboot of the computer, and to keep the state of the task for continuing the job once the restart has been done.
Add a task to scan and inventory win32 platform in a network using WMI protocol
SNMP of printer inventory knows the cartridge level.
We can link a cartridge model to a printer.
There is a stock level of cartridges.
Could it be possible to automatically decrease the cartridge stock when SNMP inventory detects the level of a cartridge changes from > 5% to <95% ? And send a notification? :-)
Thanks a lot
