Responder client Data

Top  Previous  Next

Responder client data is available from workstations and servers with the optional Responder client installed. This information is automatically stored in the LANsurveyor Repository if enabled.

 

System Information

 

 Responder Version: the version of the Responder client currently running.

 

 Machine Type: the model of a computer. LANsurveyor may not be able to differentiate certain types of models and may not be able to identify machines released after the LANsurveyor application.

 

 Machine Vendor: the brand of the computer.

 CPU Type: the type of CPU (processor).

 

 Number of CPUs: the number of CPUs installed.

 

 CPU Speed: the clock speed of the CPU. Only available for Windows machines running Windows NT/2K/XP, Linux, and some Mac OS machines.

 

 Bus Speed: the clock speed of the system bus. Not available for Windows machines and may not be available for all Mac OS machines, especially 68k-based machines.

 

 FPU Type: the type of Floating Point Unit.

 

 MMU Type: the type of Memory Management Unit.

 

 Physical RAM: the amount of physical RAM installed.

 

 Logical RAM: the amount of logical RAM available. This value is the same as the Physical RAM when virtual memory is not enabled. On some machines, this value might be less that the Physical RAM because some RAM may be used by the video display and the operating system.

 

 Keyboard Type: the type of keyboard attached.

 

 OS Type: the operating system name.

 

OS Version: the version number of the operating system.

 

 

Networking

 

 TCP/IP version: Windows machines display WinSock. Linux machines display BSD Sockets. Mac OS machines display either Open Transport and its version or MacTCP and its version.

 

 IP Address: an IP address assigned to this machine.

 

 Router Address: an IP address of the machine's router.

 

 Net Mask: an IP net mask assigned to this machine.

 

 IP Ethernet Address: Ethernet hardware (MAC) address assigned to the default TCP/IP interface.

 

 AppleTalk Version: Open Transport or Classic (pre-Open Transport) and the version number for each, if Open Transport is running. Not available for Linux or Windows machines.

 

 AppleTalk Address: the AppleTalk address assigned to this machine, in the form of "net.node". Not available for Linux or Windows machines.

 

 AppleTalk Ethernet Address: the Ethernet hardware (MAC) address assigned to the AppleTalk interface. If AppleTalk is not running on an Ethernet interface, "N/A" will appear. Not available for Linux or Windows machines.

 

Processes

 

 Process Name: the name of the process.

 

 Process Type: the type of process. For Windows machines, the type will always be Application. For Mac OS, process types include Application, INIT, Background, and Finder.

 

 Process Size: the amount of memory allocated by the process. For computers running Windows 95/98/ME or Mac OS X, this value will always be zero, as it is not available.

 

 Process Active Time: the accumulated time during which the process has used the CPU, including both foreground and background processing time. For Mac OS X and Windows machines running Windows 95/98/ME, this value will always be zero, as it is not available.

 

Volumes

 

 Volume Name: the name of the volume.

 

 Volume Kind: "Local" indicates that this is a volume directly connected to the machine. "Remote" indicates a shared volume that is mounted over the network.

 

 Volume Capacity: the amount of space available for use on the volume (expressed in megabytes). Windows 98 nodes do not return accurate information for this value.

 

 Volume Free Space: the amount of free space on the volume (expressed in megabytes). Windows 98 nodes do not return accurate information for this value.

 

SCSI Devices

 

For Windows machines, SCSI devices can only be discovered and listed if the machine is running Windows NT/2K/XP.

 

 SCSI Bus: the SCSI Bus value. Usually the bus value will be zero, unless an external or expansion SCSI bus is in use on the map object.

 

 SCSI ID: the SCSI I.D. value. This can range from 0 to 7 for each SCSI bus.

 

 SCSI Type: is vendor-specified but usually has a name such as Disk, Tape or CD-ROM.

 

 SCSI Vendor: is usually an abbreviated version of a company name.

 

 SCSI Product: is usually an abbreviated version of a device name.

 

 SCSI Version: is defined by the vendor and may contain unprintable characters.

 

PCI Devices

 

 PCI Name: the name of the PCI card or device.

 

 PCI Type: the type of PCI card.

 

 PCI Location: the bus the PCI card uses to connect to the system.

 

 PCI Vendor ID: the manufacturer of the card or driver.

 

Hard Disks

 

 Disk Name/Type: the type or system name for the drive.

 

 Disk Capacity:  the capacity of the drive.

 

IP Addresses

 

 IP Address:  the IP address(es) of the node.

 

 Router Address:  the router address for this IP address.

 

 Net Mask:  the Net Mask for this IP address.

 

 Ethernet Address:  Ethernet hardware (MAC) address assigned to this specific TCP/IP interface.

 

Applications

 

 Application Name: name of the application.

 

 Version: application version number.

 

Control Panels

 

 Control Panel Name: name of the control panel. Not available for Linux.

 

 Version: control panel version number.

 

Extensions/DLLs

 

 Extension/DLL Name: all enabled DLLs (Windows) or Extensions (Mac OS) or .so Libraries (Linux) on the startup disk.

 

 Version: Extension or DLL version number.

 

Fonts

 

 Font Name: name of the font.

 

 Version: font version number.

 

Startup Items

 

 Startup Item Name: For Windows machines running Windows 95/98/ME, displays a list of all items found in the RunServices Registry entry. Entries in RunServices Registry key are applications that are run automatically when Windows 95/98/ME starts up. The Responder client for Windows is an example of such an application. For Windows machines running Windows NT, 2000 and XP, displays a list of all NT Services and their status. For Linux, the list of daemons run at system startup. For Mac OS, displays a list of all items found in the Startup Folder.

 

 Startup Version/Status: version or status of the startup item.

 

File Extensions

 

 File Extension: up to four letters or numbers found after the period at the end of a file name. If a file has no extension, it is placed in the list under the "[No Extension Present]". Not available for Linux.

 

 File Extension Size (KB): the amount of space used by the files with that extension.

 

Volume Throughput

 

 Vol Name: the name of the volume tested for throughput.

 

 Vol Throughput (GB/hr): the number of gigabytes per hour that could be transferred from the volume to the computer running LANsurveyor.
