This is an old project meant for creating an inventory of hardware components. For each component its state is recorded as well as useful notes or links to external documentation. Components are grouped in categories to enable quick retrieval. Here's a screenshot of a component group and component details.
Currently, HWS supports 26 different device types. Hardware of one of these device types can be input into the system along with certain key features. The supported device types are:
Controller Mouse Scanner Display NIC SCSI Cable Ethernet Cable Optical Soundcard Floppy Disk Printer System Graphics Adapter Processor System Mainboard Harddisk PSU Switch Keyboard Rack Tape Memory Reader UPS Modem Router
Additional features are:
- Importing and exporting of CSV-files;
- User accounts;
- Locations definitions;
- Site announcements;
- Online help;
