Flexera agent - how to tell when an initial scan is sent

Hi, 

I'm planning on providing this command line to our techs. Also, how can I tell on the machine when the scan was sent?

cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Tracker"

ndtrack -t machine

Also, can anyone tell me how long it takes to to an initial scan of a Windows 10 computer? This will typically be newly imaged computers. I understand times may vary. I don't have the ability to test this myself, or I would.

Hello @danadaugherty,

To know when the resulting inventory (.NDI) file has been uploaded to an available inventory beacon, you can check the tracker.log within:

C:\Windows\Temp\ManageSoft OR the Temp folder of the executing user (Windows)

/var/opt/managesoft/log (Unix)

Within this log file, assumingly all went well, there should be a line of the following format:

File '<username>on <hostname>at <datetime>(Full).ndi.gz' removed from upload directory

As you've already identified, it is difficult to estimate how long the inventory gathering process might take, as there are many variables involved, e.g:

1) Is file scanning enabled? How many directories are included?

2) Is the device hosting any instances of Oracle Database?

3) System resources

HTH,

Joseph
