Computer Plucker is a fork and a "restoration" of Computer stats utility by @Rogue5099 (link)
You can obtain various data about local machine, as from the screenshot.
But my goal is not (only) to provide another PC stats tool, but to develop a very basic remote inventory tool, like (a small subset of) the abandoned Spiceworks or the Microsoft SCCM.
So this script can be deployed on a machine as a standalone executable (yes you need only ONE file to distribute) , and launching the .EXE it installs itself to a folder (es. c:\autoit\computerplucker)
In tools menù you can set two tasks and not only
one for creating every week a file.ini with all the data of the machine. another one for creating every week a file.ini with all the data of the machine PLUS uploading a CRYPTED record of the machine in a free mysql DB online For my needs, I am deploying the .exe and schedule the second task, uploading data one time a week.
In tools menù you will find also commands for:
manual creating the .ini data file to upload the data in crypted records to upload the data in clear text records (for testing..) total uninstall of ComputerPlucker, with a simple security code. many other tasks in not so logical order.. next version I have to tidy the menù... So my plan is to deploy this on my machines, and have the data in a online DB, this DB will be for me only a "cache" for data records to be downloaded (and deleted) by another script.
As today the account of this TEST DB is embedded in code, using the "File to Base64 String' Code Generator" by @UEZ (used also for embedding icons and XML task definitions)
Local $mysqlhost = "sql11.freemysqlhosting.net"
Local $mysqlport = "3306"
Local $mysqldb = "sql11403701"
Local $mysqluser = "sql11403701"
Local $mysqlpsw = "QtL7T9U5GV"
The DB is one table of 30 mysql tinytext fields... very simple indeed...
You can try to upload data to this DB and access (phpmyadmin or a random mysql browser app) to see the results.
Or you can use my ComputerPluckerDBbrowser (see at the end of this post) a script to collect and manage the data.
PRIVACY warning: you are uploading data of your PC account and PC data, test as your risk (or test in another account...)
I also created a small post in a blog for not so geek friends, and I have a more advanced version of the data browser, you can have more info lookin' here. 😀
Attached you will find the code, and all the necessary includes are at this >link<.
