Linux Inventory Event Monitor
Learn How to Retrieve Inventory Data for Linux-based Devices
About the Linux Inventory Event Monitor

The Linux Inventory Event Monitor scans the systems you select and collects or refreshes inventory data for each of them. Inventory data includes the number of CPU cores, their frequencies, lists of partitions, installed RAM, installed applications, installed packages, and more. This information is made available on the Inventory tab of each of your network devices and in the inventory reports.

The event monitor works automatically by connecting to your network devices using the credentials that you select and gathering inventory data, so it has very few required settings.

Getting Started

To begin, add the Linux device you'd like to monitor. Once you do this, an inventory tab will appear for the device you've chosen to monitor. Here, you can see all the retrieved inventory data for the selected device.
