Well, we had "What tool do you use to monitor your servers?", and I wondered, do you (and should you) monitor your clients (desktops and laptops)? What tools are useful for this?
It seems to me that one should monitor the clients -- to guage how well they are performing, perhaps to keep an eye on battery life and power usage, perhaps watching hard drive, network, CPU and maybe even GPU usage, and, indeed, to see if lab users avoid a certain machine or if it never shows up on the network.
Please state which platform(s) a given tool works with, and the licence or cost, if it is easily determined.
