  1. A bit of introduction: I'm a happy user of Pulseway Manager. I use Pulseway Manager Enterprise (but for this topic it doesn't really matter). I manage quite large deployment with 250 Pulseway monitored machines. Someone else installed (via GPO) and did some basic setup. After running basic setup for a while, someone else changed some settings and tweaked it a bit. Finally ... again someone said lets change things around... This got me to this point... I have to change: CPU For all servers CPU > 90% for 30minutes > CRITICAL RAM RAM on 1 HOST – 5% for 30 min > CRITICAL Disable Low RAM on VM's Disable Low RAM in Azure Enable storage for any drives the servers have 20GB free > ELEVATED 10GB free > CRITICAL While I could just assign some poor guy to go thru 60+ servers and change things, make sure those are correct I decided it's time to introduce PowerShell for those Active Directory admins out there... while I know there is Pulseway GPO but it's kind of limited, and doesn't give much flexibility (for example drive monitoring). It also overwrites settings set locally without Pulseway actually showing them on Client. After playing a bit... I managed to write: Clear-Host Import-Module PSPulsewayManager -Force ### Tests - Account Page ### Get-PulsewayMaintenanceMode Set-PulsewayMaintenanceMode -Toggle $false -Verbose Get-PulsewayGroupName Set-PulsewayGroupName -GroupName 'EVOTEC' -Verbose Get-PulsewayComputerName Set-PulsewayComputerName -NewComputerName 'EVO1' -Verbose ### Set settings remotly... $Computer = 'AD1' Get-PulsewayMaintenanceMode -Computer $Computer Set-PulsewayMaintenanceMode -Computer $Computer -Toggle $false -Verbose Get-PulsewayGroupName -Computer $Computer Set-PulsewayGroupName -Computer $Computer -GroupName 'EVOTEC' -Verbose Get-PulsewayComputerName -Computer $Computer Set-PulsewayComputerName -Computer $Computer -NewComputerName 'AD1' -Verbose And another tab...

I don't want to spend time on it if there's no one else needing this I've published it on github https://github.com/EvotecIT/PSPulsewayManager But its also published in PowerShellGallery which allows you to install it .... Install-Module PSPulsewayManager Import-Module PSPulsewayManager Use the commands.. Keep in mind I've not spent a ton of time on it. There are bugs, some things are not checked.. but it does work ;-)

    Notification Bridge

    Hello Paul, i know it's been a while but I tried to use your notification plugin but it sends multiple notifications. So I've jumped into the code and modified it with "false" and tried to use "notification id" so that it's always the same ... and it still allows multiple notifications. I've added -m -i parameters to your notifications.exe to support this and added nessecary changes to plugin itself but fort some reason it just displays all that is coming. Did something change? Could you update your code to support "choice"? it used to be do not allow multiple notifications but now it's different.

    Crashes on app when fast scrolling on iOS 5.1.1

    I noticed that fast scrolling on iOS 5.1.1 on iPhone can crash app preety easly. This happens mostly when some data is loading/refreshing while you start scrolling. For example if i delete notifications and quickly jump into computers and fast scroll down (I've got over 40 machines) it crashes (it's visible the network is working then).

    I think what @yclaf meant is the Windows warning after Windows updates that server/pc needs reboot...

    Changing settings from Dashboard doesn't work

    On enterprise server I tried to change any settings of a server and I am asked for password. For my account password. I am let go and I can see settings of server. Problem is the server settings are running on different credentials (setup ones) and if I try to change something (like group name) it doesn't take any effect (I guess because it's different setup account).

    Stop/Start all services

    Currently you gotta choose services you want to monitor to be able to start/stop them at will. What I would like is to have monitoring for specified services but to be able to restart any service. This comes in handy when you don't know at setup that you need to be able to restart some service and when problems arise you have the option.

    Exchange 2003

    I know it's an old software but I do have to support it. Would be nice to have.

    Maintenance option for group

    I think it would be good to add Maintenance option for whole group of computers. Often one group is a HOST and 5-10 VM machines so having host offline starts 50 messages popping out :-)
