Pulseway’s mobile IT monitoring application

Video Transcript

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

Edgar: So this is the iOS app. The app is available across all mobile platforms and it is the only solution that is available across all mobile platforms; iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Windows phone.

Jimmy: Okay. Can you walk me through what we're looking at here?

Edgar: So here is actually the group names that we solve for the agents that we configured on our system; we configured on the workstation group in the system that was DUB WS1 and Paul.
From here, we can see a list of four monitored systems including the agents. The computer icons represents a Windows agent and the cloud icon represents a cloud [00:00:59] like an API [00:01:03]. This is actually an application, our web service that's running in the cloud right now.
Companies integrated our services with our API to display further information and monitor further information from their mobile apps. In this case, we have the Development Web Service that gives us critical information about the service which is real-time information.
Developers can integrate this into existing solutions in other [00:01:30] and have all these information spread on the mobile device like cache that just take some other internal information. You can even send back commands to the application itself like restart the payment process and reset statistics. All these commands can take effect immediately and they're very easy to integrate for pre-existing solutions.
To get started, let's just see the system that we just configured. From here, we can see CPU usage, Available memory and the IP address of the system. Furthermore, we can dive in through the network interfaces that we selected that we want to monitor. Here we can see that there's a network interface that's up right now and we can see the traffic chart for it.
Furthermore, we can dive into the system where we can actually see all the files and folders available on the system.

Jimmy: Okay. What can you do through for example right here in the files?

Edgar: You can tail a file, preview a file and delete files. This you can do exact from the mobile device. Also, if a file is not too large, you can send it to you via email. Right now, my access is read-only and I cannot run any commands on these files; however, let's enable this right real quick [00:03:14].
So to System, File Browser and here, we'll just enable file delete, file preview and sending files by email but we'll need to configure an email server so we'll just skip that. Now if we were to go back to the iOS application, we'll now have access to preview the files and actually delete the files. Let's just wait one second for it to refresh.
Device not authorized. Oh yes. We set up the authorizations here when the iOS simulator was not authorized to send commands. This is an example of what would happen if the device was stolen and when I try to access the system.
So right now we can see that there's this indicator indicating that there are commands available for the file. If you were to click it, you can delete the file, preview it or tail to which is especially used for log files. So we'll just preview the file and we see the textual content of the file.

Jimmy: That's great.

Edgar: [00:04:36] the file which will remove the file instantly.

Jimmy: Okay.

Edgar: Just one second for it to refresh. There you go.
