Please make sure you download the latest version of the Live Optics collector to get the latest updates and enhancements
As part of the ongoing improvements in Live Optics, we have added a 3rd collector option within Optical prime. The 3 options are:
- Secure connection to Live Optics web services
- Upload of SIOKIT
- Inventory mode (NEW)
Inventory mode is a new collection option that has been added to Optical Prime. The major difference in Inventory mode is that collection data is NOT sent back to the Live Optics Web services. All data collected is stored locally as a excel file and immediately available to the user. The Inventory mode output excel does not include any performance metrics or datapoints. As the name implies the Inventory mode allows the user to collect basic server details including Physical Servers, Hypervisors and VMs as well as other details. If performance data is required, then remaining 2 collector option must be selected (Secure connection or SIOKIT).
