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:
That’s it, now you can see which computers may cause you trouble during the update or new installation.
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:
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 Let’s try finding outdated software without using the Software accounting tab.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:
Greetings! We’re releasing the first major update for Total Software Deployment! Gradually, we’re improving our software and making your wishes a reality. The key feature introduced in today’s update is the ability to deploy Microsoft Office products. But first things first. Let’s have a look at the full list of changes:
- BIG FEATUREFor Silent deployment of Microsoft Office 2013/2016: support for Office installers that use the Click-to-Run technology.
- NewFor the Silent method: the option to set the installer timeout to kill the process during the deployment or test run if incorrect parameters were specified.
- NewFor the Macro method: fixed installer timeout for killing the process after the playback of all recorded actions.
- FixedErrors in deployment log entries and in the deployment history in various scenarios.
- Some other fixes and improvements.
Now Total Software Deployment can silently deploy recent versions of Microsoft Office that use the Click-to-Run technology. This technology — an alternative to the traditional method of installation/update using MSI files — is used by Microsoft since Office 2013. To deploy a package using the Click-to-Run technology, you’ll need to add the Click-to-Run setup.exe to the Software storage and attach the Office distribution folder after ticking the multi-file option. After, simply follow the instructions on the information panel.
We’re looking forward to your feedback. Thanks to you, TSD can become better and better!
Greetings, friends! Today, we bring you another update of Total Network Monitor 2. We’ve implemented the long-awaited functionality to quickly move devices between groups and an easy way to copy monitors in the main window. Additionally, we’ve added the ability to check the contents of HTTPS resources and fixed some other flaws present in the previous versions. Let’s look at the list of changes:
- BIG FEATUREAbility to Drag & Drop monitors and devices.
- NewCopying monitors using Drag & Drop, including copying into device groups.
- NewMoving devices between groups using Drag & Drop.
- NewAltering the structure of groups using Drag & Drop.
- NewCutting, copying and pasting monitors via the context menu.
- NewMenu option to run Total Software Deployment.
- NewSupport for HTTPS links in HTTP sensor.
- ImprovedDevice information refresh in the Network tree.
- Improved“Show message” action.
- ImprovedRunning TNM as a service.
- ImprovedRendering of the monitor list and of the Network tree when refreshing.
- ImprovedNew program icon and new graphics in the installer.
- ImprovedNew image in exported HTML logs.

- FixedCounter errors on stopped monitors.
- FixedCrash when removing black monitors for most Internet sensor types.
- FixedEncoding for the “Send email” action.
- FixedSeveral option items.
- FixedCrash when working with a large number of monitors.
Not too long ago, when Total Network Monitor 2 was still at the stage of open beta testing and you sent in feedback to help us improve the functionality and usability of the program, the one request we received most often was for Drag & Drop functionality, which has now been implemented! The Project Editor is no longer needed: now it’s all quick and intuitive. Copying monitors and moving devices between groups in the Network tree is done using Drag & Drop, while moving monitors is available from the context menu. It’s easy! Update the program and try it out for yourself.
We hope you enjoyed the news. See you soon!
