Installing NightWatchman Enterprise

- Install the NightWatchman Management Center.
- Install the 1E WakeUp servers.
- Install the 1E Agents.
- Install Web WakeUp.
- Install the Enterprise View.
Running the product for the first time
The NightWatchman Console provides a means of managing wake ups, shutdowns and power policies to computers on your network. You can find it on the Start Menu. When you run the console, you need to run it for a number of days before any computers with active 1E agents appear in it – depending on the size of your environment you specified during the installation. The larger it is, the longer it takes for the information to filter through.
Once the 1E Agents have reported back, the devices will initially appear in the UNASSIGNED BUILDING and UNASSIGNED DEPARTMENT nodes in the console. You create location and organization groups to associate devices with. Alternatively, run the NightWatchman Console Import Wizard to assign discovered devices into their respective groups.
The NightWatchman Management Center Start Menu folder has a link to the Reports Console where you can view various reports based on data generated by the 1E Agents. You need to run the system for a number of days in order for it to gather enough information to make the reports meaningful. The reports you can run are:
- Energy, costs and emissions – energy consumption, cost and CO2 emission reports
- Operational – reports that show how the system is running
- Power optimization – reports that give you an insight on the power consumption of your battery-powered devices.
- Reboot optimization – reports that detail the reboot of activities of your users
- Savings – savings and what-if reports
- Wake up and power down – reports that show wake up and power down statistics
For example, clicking the Savings links displays a list savings reports but before you can view any of them, you need to set the Currency, CO2 emissions units and tariffs.
For example, to get details of the Weekly NightWatchman savings report, complete the parameters for the report and click Generate.
