The project is broken down into three components with a special plugin for a forth.
1. The backend service is the most vital as it performs the actual monitoring and control operations. It runs on your BigFix root server keeping an eye on the various parts of your infrastructure as defined in the registry.
2. An iPhone/iPod/iPad application which allows for the consumption of the status data feed from the backend service. This application lets you see at a glance the state of your infrastructure anywhere in the world assuming you’ve opened up the appropriate firewall port to the service.
3. Desktop-Dashboard program which also consumes the status data feed and displays the results. Similar to an Operations Centers many data display screens, this Dashboard lets you see at a glance the state of your infrastructure.
4. I have configured this application to easily plug-into a http://leftronic.com dashboard. This will let you display the data anywhere in the world without the need to open up a firewall port to access the data feed.
