Administrator's Application

The heart of ENI is the Administrator's Application. This program allows you to manage all the information collected in XML files. Its main window is divided into three parts:

  1. Network Tree;
  2. Information Page;
  3. Object Inspector.

The Main window:

All computers that use the ENI Agent to collect their information are represented in the Administrator's Application in the hierarchical form of a Network tree. This structure consists of a set of nodes (folders) called "departments" with the computers as leaves. Unlike the real network hierarchy, here you can group computers in any order. Every node may have its own child subdepartments and/or computers. The root node is called Entire Network. Its name can't be changed. Every department also has a title, for example Personnel Department or Room #215.

In order to create a network structure you can use the Departments Manager tool in the Tools menu. The structure of the computers and departments that you created is reflected in the Network Tree (1) on the left.

Initially, all the computers are located in the Entire Network node. You can create the tree of folders that correspond to the structure of your network and arrange the computers in the Network Tree as you need. You can create, edit, and delete departments directly in the Network tree. Also, you can use drag-and-drop technology to reallocate computers and departments directly in the Network tree.

When a user clicks a computer icon in the Network tree the data of that computer will be displayed on the Information page in the center. All the information about a specific computer is divided into categories that are displayed on separate pages (2).

When a user clicks a department icon the Information page will reflect information about the department selected (the number of computers, other statistics).

The Object inspector (3) is located on the right side of the main window. It has five sets of buttons which allow you to switch between data categories, such as Disks, CPU, Software Installed and others. If you want to enhance any Information page you can do so by using Tools-> Edit to edit the current Information page.

To switch between Information pages, click the appropriate icon of the Object inspector.
