    • Inventory functionalities

    OCS Inventory NG use an agent which launch an inventory on the clients computers, and a management’s server which retrieve the inventory results. You will be able to see all inventoried data, detected network devices and finally create deployment packets from the webconsole. The communication between the agents and the server are made with the HTTP and HTTPS procotol. Data are formatted with XML and Zlib to reduce the bandwidth usage. The management’s server is composed of :

    • Database Server
    • Communication Server
    • Deployment Server
    • Administration Interface

  • illu_fonction_teledeploiement


    OCS Inventory NG includes a packet deployment solutions on remote computers. From the server’s administration interface, you can send the packets which will be downloaded using HTTP/HTTPS and launched by the distants computers’ agent..


    • Low bandwidth usage
    • Deployment’s status
    • Statistics from deployed packages

    How to deploy ?

    You have to create a packet with the administration’s interface.
    Once the packet is created, you need to activate it.
    Finally, you choose on which computers you want to deploy the packet and you install it.


  • Network discover

    Hardware discovery take place in two steps

    In the first place, the IP search module detects the hardware on the network, even equipped with a firewall. Once an agent has received the order to proceed the IP scan, it identifies the first network interface to use. He try to resolve all other IP address in the subnet using the ARP protocol. All the IP scan data are sent to the server (XML format).

    In a second time, SNMP scan (function added in OCS Inventory NG 2.0) will improve data received by IP discover. Using SNMP scan, you’ll be able to get informations from network devices : scanner, computer without agent, router, etc.

  • Web Service

    You can now connect ocsinventory-ng with a 3rd party software !

    Since version 2.4, a REST API Web Service is available. This one is available from the OCS Inventory NG communication server.

    You can read the developer’s documentation to understand how to access to the inventory data retrieved with our REST API.
