Sensor Types.


By default SyvirBuild scans each PC on the network with a wide range of sensors.



O.S
The O.S sensor reads the operating system that is present on the target P.C. This is usually a version of Microsoft Windows. The Sensor returns the version and type of Windows.

Enclosure
Where available information on the target Pcs enclosure type is returned. Primarily this can be one of three types.
Tower
Desktop
Laptop

Processor
The processor sensor returns the manufacturer and model number of the cpu fitted to the motherboard. With some systems WMI will return two values for a dual core processor. SYVIRBuild processor sensor returns just one cpu value.
