I'm busy making reports on queries in the LANDesk management console on software usage and versions.
And found a whole lot of historical information is kept in the database.
From what I found on the web this ties in with the 'days to keep inventory scans' settings on the inventory service on the core.
So I've set this value back from 0 (forever) to 90 days which seems more appropriate.
My question is, why would anyone be interested in historical inventory scans?
From a reporting perspective I am only interested in the most recent information. I want to know the state of my machines as they are now.
Is it possible to have the client machines only run full scans and tell the core to keep only the last scan in it's DB or something?
If you can share any insights you have on this with me that would be much appreciated.
