Overview

The Asset Inventory view on the Node Details page in the Orion Web Console displays a variety of data for a node, including system, hardware, memory, network interfaces, applications, custom assets, logical volumes, and more. This article provides details about how the Orion Platform collects data for resources in the Asset Inventory view.

Environment

  • SAM 6.1 or later

Detail

The Asset Inventory sub-view is automatically displayed for each node supported. You can also enable Asset Inventory data collection for an individual node via the Add Node Wizard or by navigating through the Management resource. See Enable and disable the Asset Inventory dashboard.

The Asset Inventory sub-view displays a variety of data for a node, including system, hardware, memory, network interfaces, applications, custom assets, logical volumes, and more. Details displayed depend on the polling method used to collect data from the node.

Note the following details about data displayed on the Asset Inventory sub-view:

  • If expected asset data does not appear for a node to which an Orion agent was deployed, check the configuration of the agent to make sure it is suitable for the node.
  • For SNMP, the Orion Platform uses the following object identifiers to poll for Asset Inventory data:
    • DisplayName: 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.6.3.1.2
    • Version: 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.6.3.1.101
    • Publisher: 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.6.3.1.4
    • InstallDate: 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.6.3.1.5
  • Internet Information Services (IIS) use drivers and other “non-software” records that may result in duplicate records being displayed in the Orion Web Console and saved to the Orion SQL database. 

Asset Inventory data displayed in the Software Inventory resource

WMI polls many WMI classes and registers for asset data. For the Software Inventory resource, SAM polls information from the following registry branches:

  • SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
  • SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

If multiple registry keys share the same display name, filter by display name, version, and related Windows updates so only records for a specific asset appear in the Software Inventory resource and are saved in the Orion SQL database. See Filter nodes in resources using SQL queries for SAM and https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...(v=vs.85).aspx.
