Panda Cloud System Management Stjarna Fyrkant Umea (English)
Panda Cloud Systems Management (PCSM) is a cloud-based system for monitoring, inventorying and managing computers, servers and networks. Stjarna Fyrkant started its IT-department in August 2014 where they manage for Stjarna Fyrkants computers and networks but also other companies as IT consultants. They have chosen to use PCSM to manage and to monitor these networks.
The project was started because Stjarna Fyrkant wants a better insight of the system as they have gone through with the basics of it. They have chosen four areas where they wants to know more about and these are monitoring of computers and servers, SNMP for monitoring other equipment, automated processes such as updating programs and Windows automatically and for Mobile Management (MDM) to manage and monitor iPhones.
To make this happen I was given login information to PCSM, two computers and an iPhone to test PCSM and its other functionalities for what Stjarna Fyrkant want to accomplish. For monitors the report will go through about which monitor that exists in the store and in PCSM and later assign these to two groups for monitoring the servers and clients. Then how to monitor other devices via SNMP and how this was applied to the devices that Stjarna Fyrkant has, such as printers. However, this didn’t work for all devices.
For maintenance of computers the report analyzes how to keep important updates for programs like Java and .NET but also for Windows. Additionally it was looked into how to remove unnecessary files found on the computers, such as the temporary files.
For MDM the report looks in to which functionalities that exists and these were later tested for an iPhone. These functions worked surprisingly fast when it took only a few seconds for them to apply. There were plans to create a product sheet for companies of these features, but this was handed to someone else with more knowledge for design such towards companies.
