Data Enricher (classic)

Overview

The Data Enricher is a software component that complements the information about users and destinations that Collectors send to the Nexthink Cloud.

Install the Data Enricher on a Windows Server that is connected to the Active Directory and DNS servers within your corporate intranet.

Information retrieved

The Data Enricher gets the following information from your servers:

  • User information from Active Directory:

    • Distinguished Name

    • Name

    • Full name

    • Department

    • Job title

    • Location

    • Locality name

    • Country code

    • Organizational unit name

  • Destination information from reverse DNS lookup:

    • Fully Qualified Domain Name

These data are similar to the data retrieved by Engine in an on-premises setup. The user fields Location, Locality name, Country code, and Organizational unit name are however available on Nexthink Experience only.

Estimated processing time

For an available network bandwidth of 25 Mbps, the following times have been measured for a partial update, with the Data Enricher running on a Windows Server 2016 in an Azure VM (Standard_F4s - 4 CPU cores, 8 GB memory).
