An educational entity requested a solution that is capable of auditing their workstations. Their primary goal is to monitor logins to ensure that workstations are not being accessed after open hours. The ideal solution would also generate and send emails as alerts.
Expanding on the original scope of the solution, LibreNMS was chosen for its capability to monitor events at a system level through syslogs as well as provide a centralized, web-accessible platform to analyze overall network traffic, addressing information, and system specifications. Batch scripts were written to automate the configuration of the workstations’ SNMP and syslogs. A combination of batch scripts and task scheduling were used to identify workstation logins at specific times.
