Adding a Generic Sensor's URL and discovering available services
A Generic Sensor is a pre-configured mini-application, which network operators install on their servers using e.g. FTP.
Using Server Scout's Repository, as many Generic Sensors can be instantiated, as required. Given the URL of a Generic Sensor, Server Scout asks the sensor for properties and fills the 'Property Name' menu.
Exploring a Generic Sensor
Using Server Scout's Generic Sensor Explorer the application connects to a Generic Sensor installed on a local or internet-connected server. Server Scout prints name and explanation of each property of the sensor. Using Generic Sensor Explorer, network managers gain instantly insight in their sensor network.
Scanning a network for devices
Using Server Scout's Discover Network feature, Server Scout prints technical details for all devices of
a network. Using a simle contextual menu command, a device can be added
to Repository using a single click.
