Suppress superfluous changes in the change history

02/13/2018 536 views
In the change log of a device, useless changes are logged, sometimes repeatedly, i.e.
- "RAM used changed from xxx to yyy" - what is the use of that? RAM use changes all the time, there's no point logging this!
- 'Bios Release Date' changed from xxx to yyy - logged repeatedly over and over again.

Any idea how to stop this nonsense?

  • To me, the multiple entries for BIOS Release Date change is clearly a bug. It should be logged only once. Plus it's a false-positive as the date is the same, just the format is different (no idea why that is).
    And RAM Used should not be logged at all, it's normal operations that memory usage is fluctuating with usage, it's not a change to the device!
  • I was just informed by Quest support that the "Bios Release Date" issue is now a known defect under K1-19700 reported recently since version 7.2 and will be addressed in the latest release of K1000 version 8.1 estimated in the month of March.

You can select some of the properties that you want tracked under Settings, History then clicking on Assets under the Subscriptions column and then the pencil next to Computer. Unfortunately, 'Ram Used' is not one of them.

Any change in Inventory or Asset will log a change in the history, you can only filter this if you create a custom report to only show you what you want.
