Data Points in Autoscan mode

When PVT is installed on a Metasys server, the following server machine data points are captured by PVT:
  • Server Machine RAM usage
  • Server Machine CPU usage
  • USB port status
  • OS version
  • Hard drive free space
  • Firewall status
  • SQL version
  • If the Software Manager and SQLite v3.27.2 do not exist on the computer, the PVT installer automatically installs them during PVT installation. You do not need to remove any other SQL Server version that is installed on the computer.
  • If you install PVT on a server that runs ADS or ADX, the system requirements must match those outlined in Application and Data Server (ADS) and Extended Application and Data Server (ADX) Product Bulletin (LIT-1201525).
  • PVT UI works best with resolution settings 1920 x 1080. For the best viewing experience, set size of text, apps and other items to 100%.
