The Live Optics Personal Edition (LO PE) is a product that is a subset of the current Registered Live Optics version. The LO PE contains only the Optical Prime asset for Server & Cloud Inventory mode and is downloadable without the need to register using a corporate email account. This article provides a brief explanation of features and a step by step instruction on how to download Live Optics Personal Edition.
The Inventory mode is the only collection option that is available for the LO PE tool and it is only available for the asset type Optical Prime. You will not be able to use Inventory Mode for any other Category types such as Storage, Data Protection, File or Workloads. All other features and capabilities are grayed out. In Inventory mode, data is not returned to the Live Optics web services. Instead it is stored locally as an Excel file. This Inventory mode Excel file does not include any performance metric or data points.
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 for Optical Prime, the user must register and obtain the full Live Optics tool and utilize the remaining other collector option under Optical Prime - Secure connection or SIOKIT. This also is the same to gather Performance from all other asset types on the collector.
