Management, Monitoring and Remote Access

Easy Install

All you need is a Windows machine with .NET Framework 4.5 installed. The IT environment you are going to work with can be domain or workgroup based. The installation process is pretty simple and consists of several steps: agree to the end user license terms, issue a free license or provide the existing license number, and select port numbers for the web console and remote desktop gateway. After successful installation, you can open your browser and start working with the console. By default, all users with the domain administrator or local machine administrator (for workgroup) role have full access to the application features. To add hosts to the console, you don’t need to install any agents on them, the only requirement is to have WinRM configured.

Modern Web Console

You only need a web browser to work with the console. You can use it in your company's local network and through the internet from anywhere – just configure external ports on your router to redirect traffic to the application's machine IP. The web console is easy to use and has a very intuitive design.

For Physical and Virtual Machines

All features are available for physical Windows machines and Hyper-V virtual machines. Support for Unix-based physical machines and ESX virtual machines is planned for future versions and is on the way. Hosts and VMs have their own sections in the app. Dashboards contain the most important information about the performance and health of all objects. You can easily view configuration and other details of each host and VM. In addition, all machines have a wellness rank which is counted based on the current performance values. This can help you understand what machines are most over- and underutilized.

Configurable User Permissions

Domain administrators can configure what users will have what rights to specific objects. They can configure per-operation user permissions for certain objects. This means that users will see only those objects and be able to perform only those operations which were explicitly allowed to them by the administrator.

Basic Management

Currently, basic operations with status are available. You can start, shut down, restart, pause, resume a host/VM, perform operations immediately or schedule them for a later time. You can also install or uninstall software remotely.

Monitoring

Igiko continuously monitors the performance of all available objects. You can view each counter on dedicated graphs. Based on this data, Igiko can trigger alarms if some of the performance values get out of the range. These alarms are calculated on a per- user basis. Each user can configure their own threshold values for the warning and error levels. In addition, the overall wellness rank is calculated based on the performance and alert level degree. Unresolved alerts cause a significant decrease in the wellness rank. Apart from performance monitoring, all hosts and VMs are monitored for system and Hyper-V events. This data is available on the main, host, and VM dashboards.

Web Remote Desktop

Igiko has a built-in remote desktop gateway that allows you to establish connections with any computer or VM located within your local network. Thanks to HTML5 RDP client control implemented in the web console, users can work with remote desktops from anywhere using a web browser. They can select screen resolution, specify credentials for RDP connects or use native VM connect mode if a VM has no local IP available or doesn’t support RDP.

Free

You can use Igiko Management Tools absolutely free. However, if your infrastructure is big, you need strong tech support, SSL traffic encryption, extended data collection, and enterprise-level SQL servers instead of embedded SQLite, then you can upgrade to a paid license and have all these options available.
