OneIQ Pulse UI

OneIQ Pulse UI is a Windows-based console for discovering supported target platforms without installing agents. It communicates with the OneIQ Pulse Service via an API.

OneIQ Pulse Service

OneIQ Pulse Service collects infrastructure configuration, performance and network data from datacenter platforms and synchronizes it over SSL with the OneIQ Central data warehouse.

Passwords entered into the OneIQ Pulse are encrypted using AES-256 and are never displayed in plaintext or transmitted externally. See Application Security for more information about security features in OneIQ.
