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 Let’s try finding outdated software without using the Software accounting tab.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!

TNI 3.2.1: SNMPv3 support

The new TNI update is here, bringing you the long-awaited SNMPv3 support and a few minor fixes and updates:

  • BIG FEATURESupport for scanning of network devices via SNMP v2c and v3.
  • NewAbility to switch to Change log via keyboard: Ctrl+5.
  • ImprovedReporting of license usage on the status bar.
  • ImprovedCompatibility with Total Software Deployment when working with the same network storage.
  • FixedSAM: Returned ability to unmerge one software item from a collection.
  • FixedStandard actions “Reboot” and “Poweroff”.
  • FixedScan of SNMPv1 devices.



At last our users who have network devices that don’t support SNMPv1 are relieved. They can use the latest and secure version 3 of SNMP protocol to collect information from their devices. Hardware with SNMPv2c support was not forgotten as well. We would be glad to receive your feedback about this new feature.

SNMPv3-en2

And as always, till next time!
