About this project

To keep a computer lab in a good health, It is very important to discover the faulty computers as soon as you can. But many of the issues are not easy to find unless you login to computers and check them one by one. When the number of the labs and the computers goes higher the process of checking computers is impossible. 

Most of the computer lab technicians are using the network software products which are costly and are not easy to use.

As an IT Specialist and software developer, I spends many years in these fields and I designed and developed an app that checks all the computers inside out, and displays the results in a graphical format, with a simple and easy to use system configurations that even a just hired technician can use this app easily. It is running in a big university and users are happy and addicted to it. Simple to use and easy setting, without the need of going through hundreds of lines of numbers and errors, this app shows everything in one screen by color codes and simple bar charts.

The current version, which is running on about 250 computers, both MAC and PC, is in use for almost a year. It actively checks the computers and shows the issues. The setting is easy to understand and customize, for example you can enable/ disable displaying the occupied computers in a big lab.

Some of the features available in the current version:

The codes are all written in C++.

Schedule a Restart, Shut down, or Wake On a computer, a group of computers, or a lab. (Daily Schedule to use less power during night)

Send a message to display on screens of a computer, a group of computers, or a lab.

And the color codes:

Green: Computer is fine and available

Blue: Computer is fine and occupied

Grey: Computer is Disabled

Orange: Computer is in a critical situation, and needs attention

Red: The computer has issue

Now, I want to make it available globally different operation systems, and platforms. in many other universities, colleges, schools, and big corporations.

The features to be added:

Run diagnostics remotely on a computer, a group of computers, or a lab.

Collect metrics of the users, applications, in-use time, etc.

Make it available to web based, iPhone, and Android.

Risks and challenges

There is no risk, I have been in IT for many years and I have worked as a lab technician and developer for many years, so I know what a computer lab technician needs and I have the developer knowledge to make the tools.
