Inventory Management

FusionInventory – IT asset and inventory management

FusionInventory is a modular and multi-platform solution for hardware and software inventory of assets, wake on LAN, software deployment, and P2P download. It acts like a gateway and collect information sent by the agents. It will create or update the information in GLPI it minimal effort from the administrator.

Fusion Inventory consists of two components: the plug-in that integrates with GLPI and the agents deployed on the workstations.

FusionInventory Agent is an application designed to help a network or system administrator to keep track of the hardware and software configurations of devices. It performs a wide range of management tasks, such as local inventory, software deployment or network discovery. It can be used either standalone, or in combination with a compatible server (OCS Inventory, GLPI, OTRS, Uranos, …) acting as a centralized control point.

The project also includes a GLPI plugin. GLPI is the Information Resource-Manager with an additional Administration Interface.

The software was created as a spin-off to the OCS Inventory project by changing the latter’s operating architecture: the central server, which collects the inventory data transmitted by agents deployed on workstations, has been eliminated, with that function being performed directly by GLPI.

Features include:

  • Supports: Computers, network devices, printers, virtual machines, and Android phone.
  • Supports various virtualization mechanisms: VMware vCenter/ESX/ESXi, Virtualbox, Libvirt, Xen, OpenVZ/Virtuozzo, Parallels, LXC, FreeBSD Jails, HPVM, Vserver, and Hyper-V.
  • Install, update or remove software. You can also push administration scripts.
  • Send Wake on Lan order on its local network.
  • Cross-platform support – FusionInventory agent is available for Windows, OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonFlyBSD, AIX, Solaris, and HP-UX
