Script Check

Script Check enables you to upload, deploy and run your own user defined scripts as a 24x7 Check. There are also Default Scripts built into the system that you can use with the Script Check. You can add Script Checks to all servers and workstations and configure them from the N-sight RMM Dashboard.

You can suppress check alerts until the Check failures exceed a configured number of consecutive failures. For more information, see Configure alert thresholds to suppress alerts.

For instructions to add a user defined script to the N-sight RMM Dashboard, see Add a Script.
