Syvir Server Support


SYVIR SERVER installs onto Windows based machines only.

Requires a minimum of Windows Vista/Windows Server 2008.

Requires a minimum of Windows Vista.Windows Server 2008

Runs on Windows Vista (32 bit),(64 bit). 7 (32 bit),(64 bit). 8 (32 bit),(64 bit). 10 (32 bit),(64 bit). Windows Server 2008.Windows Server 2012.Windows Server 2016

Requires DirectX 8.1 or higher on the installed machine.

Windows WMI services need to be running on the Server being scanned.
When you run SYVIR SERVER it will build a 3D model of your server and automatically
scan a diagnostic check of your servers internal hardware.
You can do manual checks of the system by selecting the Scan menu options.
A data table of OK, Warning or Error messages is available by clicking on these options.
From the Scan menu select Build Server.
This action creates a 3D virtual model of the Server.
System details are listed of hardware in your Server.
By default SYVIR SERVER scans each Server with a wide range of sensors.

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

Where available information on the Server enclosure type is returned. Primarily this can be one of four types.
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. SYVIR SERVER processor sensor returns upto 16 cpus. The virtual 3D motherboard shows upto two cpus.

Physical Memory
Memory Sensor detects how many internal memory cards are fitted to the motherboard. WMI returns values that include ROM BIOS memory for instance that is not fitted as a card. The memory sensor strips out this data to give a more accurate visualisation of the fitted memory cards. By default where two cpus are detected, memory cards are split between the two cpus in the virtual 3D simulation.

Detects whether a keyboard is connected. The sensor recognises PS2 and USB keyboards. The keyboard (if connected) is represented by a single key connected to either the PS2 keyboard socket or a USB (Back) socket.

Pointing device.
Detects whether a pointing device (Mouse) is connected. The sensor recognises PS2 and USB pointing devices. The mouse (if connected) is represented by a virtual mouse connected to either the PS2 mouse socket or a USB (Back) socket.

The motherboard sensor detects if a baseboard is fitted and the manufactures part number of the board.

System Slots
The slots sensor detects PCI expansion slots on the motherboard. PCI and Express types are recognised. The virtual motherboard is populated with types of slots found by this sensor.

Returns the ROM BIOS used on the motherboard. The value returns the BIOS Manufacture and model.

Video Controller
Typically video is provided through integrated graphics or a separate AGP graphics card. Video Controller sensor detects which type of graphics is fitted to the motherboard.

Hard Drive
Returns the make and model of the hard drives fitted to the system. Drives are show as 2 x RAID drives. One of the two drives is clickable to retreive diagnostic information.

DVD/CD Drive
Returns the make and model of the DVD/CD drives fitted to the system.

Floppy Disk Drive
Returns the make and model of the Floppy Disk Drive fitted to the system. (Not shown in 3D system)

Tape Drive
Returns the make and model of the Tape Drive fitted to the system. (Not shown in 3D system)

USB Ports
Detects USB Ports front and back.

1394 Controller
Returns firewire details.

Network Adapter
Returns Ethernet adapters.

SCSI Controller
Returns details of SCSI devices.

Detects if wireless is fitted to the system.

Serial Port
Returns details of serial ports on the motherboard.

Parallel Port
Returns details of parallel ports on the motherboard.

Sound Device
Detects which sound devices are fitted to the motherboard.

Detects fans fitted either to the enclosure or cpu.

Infrared Device
Returns details of a infrared device fitted to the motherboard.

Detects if a Refrigeration is fitted to the system.

Heat Pipe
Detects if a heat pipe is fitted to the motherboard.

Temperature Probe
Detects if Temperature Probes are fitted to the motherboard.

Battery (UPS)
Detects if a uninterrupted power supply is fitted in the enclosure.
From the Scan menu select Server Diagnostics Scan.
A process begins of scanning the target server for WMI data.
This data is granular diagnostic data for each sensor type.
Once target node has been retrived a 3D version is populated with color coded status sensors.
Green signifies that the component is OK.
Yellow shows a component is in a warning state.
Red indicates an error in the target component.
Click on the component and detailed data will appear in the status box.
By default WMI returns some data about the status of various messages.
Last Message
This is generally the main message about the state of the hardware component. The usual state is OK. This means the component is working as expected.
Quite often you will find no message returned by a sensor. This is nothing usually to worry about. In some cases, for various reasons the component just doesnt produce a message.
The OK message will produce a Green color for the component.

The component has produced an error, indicated by red.

The component has been degraded, indicated by red.

The status of the component is unknown, indicated by yellow. This doesnt mean a failure, just that the status is unknown of the component.

pred fail
The component is predicted to fail, indicated by red.

The component is starting, indicated by green.

The component is stopping, indicated by yellow.

The service message is indicated by green.

The component is stressed, indicated by red.

The component is non recoverable, indicated by red.

no contact
There is no contact with the component, indicated by yellow.

lost comm
Communication with the component has been lost, indicated by yellow.
