Grouping machines to make monitoring easier in Pulseway

Video Transcript

Speakers in this video: Jimmy (GetApp) and Edgar (Pulseway)

Edgar: Well I mentioned previously about the grouping mechanism where it can group systems by client name or branch. For instance, we have all the systems there on the servers and we can quickly send commands for the entire group like checking and applying Windows updates for the all group systems. You can check, install all updates and automatically restart all group systems with one keystroke.

Just make your job a whole lot easier.

Jimmy: Yes. Absolutely. Just thinking about having for example in our own office, we have about 20 or so employees; each one with their own machine and this would make updating and keeping the systems all up to date really as easy as maybe like five minutes for 20 different systems. This is extremely efficient.

Edgar: "Exactly. This also provides you a quick way to navigate through the systems where you can actually just dive in to virtual machines and select the system that you are searching for rather than searching it on the entire machine list if you have 300 systems or maybe a bigger list.
Also, the Roles allows you to find the system a lot easier. For instance, you search all systems that have the Exchange Server module at enabled. So if we are to click on the Exchange, we see that there is one under Virtual Machines and it's called Exchange 2013 and there's another one which is the workstation with the Exchange Server module I just enabled.
It just helps you to dive in through into systems a lot easier because you need to get the job done immediately after you receive the notification and it gives you a lot easier navigation rather than having to search for a system everytime."

Jimmy: Exactly.

Edgar: Under notifications, we can see that an hour ago, there was a port which represents a child server apparently on the computer s one. In the group server, it got closed. So we can go to the system and see exactly what happened over here. We can restart the system to have the port be re-enabled; all these from your mobile device. You can receive the notification, you restart the system and then you see that [00:02:45] is back online.

Jimmy: This is exactly how all mobile applications should work. This should be this functional. What we can see in the Recording tab?

Edgar: When Pulseway was initially built, it was built as a mobile app first and that's the real advantage it was developed. So everything it can do; everything you can do. We do have a web app. We have a dashboard. So we do have other ways of monitoring systems but everything that was built was built from the ground up from the app so it's mobile native.
Because it's kind of like when sending emails from your computer but when the smartphone came in, everybody now sends emails from their mobile phone on the go.

Jimmy: Exactly.

Edgar: So the same way Pulseway does for remote monitoring and management as smartphone [00:03:41] for emails.
