This article breaks down the server information used by AppScore and enables you to identify what is essential and also what is optional.
AppScore only requires 5 pieces of essential server data to operate. These are:
- Server Name
- Data Centre
- Operating System
- Type (Virtual or Physical)
This allows you to begin work on grouping servers together into applications and associated work on scoring the applications. AppScore allows you to continually import server data from CSV files or via API to keep the data refreshed. Datas is matched on Server name.
