Conditions in table reports

Not everyone knows and uses such a killer feature of Total Network Inventory as table conditions, so today we would like to remind you about it and provide some usage examples, so you can see how it can make your work much easier.

First one is simple: imagine that you need a list of computers with less than 10GB free space left on the C drive before installing some huge OS update or a new software product. This can be achieved rather quickly:
Open the Table reports tab, copy the existing Logical disks template or create a similar one. Then click edit and add two simple conditions:

2-1

That’s it, now you can see which computers may cause you trouble during the update or new installation.

1-2

Now let’s try something a bit more complicated. For example, we need a condition to find all Intel computers running 64-bit Windows OS that meet the recommended system requirements of 64-bit Windows 10 (4 GB RAM). Is it possible? Easy!
Create a new template and add the following fields: “Operating system: Name”, “Operating system: Architecture”, “Processor: Name”, “RAM total capacity and modules” and “Network name”.
Then add the following conditions:

1-3
Now you can see the result: and you’re free to start selecting computers for an upgrade or replacement so they can meet the requirements of the modern age.

2-2

And how about software reports? Can we add conditions to filter them too? You bet! Let’s try finding outdated software without using the Software accounting tab. Let’s look for Adobe product installations that haven’t been updated this year as well as obsolete Skype installations. We can use the “Installed software” template this time, and, again, we’re going to need some conditions:

3-1
And the resulting report in accordance with your request:

3-2
That’s it for today. We hope you’ve found this information useful.
See you next time!
