3.2 Extra Metrics


We learned in the 3.1 section how to build our own custom panels.  "Extra Metrics" is an independently built tool to automate creation of a few reporting elements for us without doing it manually.  This solution is NOT directly supported by FileWave, but you may find it useful in your environment.


"Extra Metrics" gives data on applications, and generally on patch status of your devices.  The patch status elements are hard-coded, but the application versions panels are driven by dynamic reports that you can tweak to fit your needs.  All information for installation and upgrade of this solution is found here:


In this example, we have Extra Metrics installed, and are adding a new report to view Firefox information on macOS devices.
