Are the pc's being used?

By kaper ·
We have an enterprise Windows installation of 1000+ clients, and it continues to grow. I know I have pc's that are underutilized, but how do I measure? Logon times won't really help - someone can logon first thing in the morning, read their mail, then let the pc sit idle for the rest of the day. I want to assure the honkin' big pcs are assigned to the power users, and not the squeeky wheels. Thanks.

Continuous upgrades are a better approach

by stress junkie In reply to Are the pc's being used?

I wouldn't bother to try to figure this out. You know that over a five year period every desktop computer in the place will have to be replaced. All you need to do is to schedule which positions get their upgrade this year, which get their upgrade next year, and so on. Eventually everyone will temporarily have the best computer in the place for a year. Manager your user expectations by making this upgrade policy known to everyone and make it clear that there are no exceptions.
