E16 – IGEL Weekly:

How to Get Metrics (Download Speed, WIFI Signal, Monitoring) From Your Teleworker’s IGEL OS Devices

Summary

Have you ever asked yourself these questions when doing some support or admin tasks?

  • Your user is connected via WIFI and is complaining everything is slow. How strong/good is the WIFI Signal of the remote endpoint?
  • Your user is not able to access a resource and you to debug is. What is his Public IP?
  • Your user is complaining that his connection is slow. You would be happy to do a quick Speed test. How is his Download speed on her/his side?
  • The user needs to access a server but can’t. Could you check automatically if the server is reachable from the endpoint?

Well, for all of these questions, they are Linux commands you could issue in a Remote Terminal, Terminal, SSH but how handy would it be to get that information back to UMS every time the device boots? I created a few Profiles writing that information back to UMS using the UMS Structure Tag
