Overview of the Client Inventory

The Symantec Ghost Client Inventory lets you obtain information from the WMI repository on each Console client computer. You can choose what information you want to collect, and which computers to collect it from.

The collected information is stored in a database on the Console server, and updated on request. You can query this database to identify computers that have certain properties (such as free memory greater than a specified amount), and can use the selected computers as the target of a task.

You can view the property values for each computer. You can also produce reports containing the property values for each computer in a group.
