Overview of Remote Desktop Reporting

Now that we reviewed the basics of setting up a Remote Desktop, let’s talk about its most often overlooked and perhaps most impressive feature: reporting. An administrator computer contains a database of information about all Remote Desktop clients with which it interacts. This PostgreSQL database, which is stored in the /var/db/RemoteManagement/RMDB directory, can store an incredible amount of data about each computer. The data is broken into two categories: system data and file data:

  • System data contains a wealth of information about each computers hardware configuration, including all internal hardware and any attached external peripherals. System data information remains relatively static.
  • File data includes information about files, applications, operating system updates, and such. File data can change from moment to moment.
