    Hello Aniket,

    Traditionally, NMIS is used to monitor servers and network devices down to the last hop before an end-user device. This is generally done in order to manage the load on the NMIS server, and also because monitoring the end-user device (workstation, laptop, etc) provides limited value. As a result, NMIS does not currently ship with a device model for Windows desktop OSs. However, one could be developed quickly based off the existing Windows server models.

    Please see the Device Modeling section of our wiki for details: Developing Device Models for NMIS

      but we can develop windows desktops models as well right?

    2. Aniket

      also it is not able to recognize the Processor type and Generation

      Yes, you can quickly create a model for devices using Windows desktop OS. See my reply above and the link to the wiki page for reference on how to proceed.

      Hi Mark Thanks I will try to create the model.

      Hi Mark I made a separate model for windows desktops OS, but not able to monitor the CPU processor, can you give me an example to do it in windows desktop OS.

      Hello Aniket, We're happy to help you with debugging a Windows desktop model; this service can be included with a Support & Maintenance contract. Please contact us directly at usa@opmantek.com if you are interested and let us know how many devices you are managing with NMIS.

      Also tell me how to discover all the system at once. We have to add it manually one by one in NMIS8.
