Fusioninventory: inventory plugin for GLPI – Installation and configuration

Presentation of FusionInventory

FusionInventory (FI) is a GLPI plugin, which allows automatic inventory of positions.

The plugin is made up of two parts:

  • The PHP script that adds functionality to GLPI.
  • The agent which is an application which is installed on the workstations and which communicates with the PHP script to inject the information into GLPI.

FI also allows network discovery and inventory using agents, with these options you can go back to GLPI almost all the equipment on your network and get information and statistics feedback.

For my part, I prefer FI to its competitor OcsInventory because fusion is fully integrated with GLPI and this avoids having to have several administrations.
