Run Checks from the Dashboard

You can immediately run all Checks for one or more target devices from the N-sight RMM Dashboard, or you can immediately run specific checks for a target device.

The Agent uses a Persistent Outbound Connection mechanism to perform actions in near real-time from the N-sight RMM Dashboard.

If there are pending actions for a device, the Run Checks option is disabled for that device. To enable the option, you can wait for the pending actions to run, or you can cancel the Manage Pending Actions.
