I have a requirement to check whether a bigfix client computer is online/reporting on BigFix console from the client “Linux” system. Currently I have a shell script looking at the log file /var/opt/BESClient/__BESData/__Global/Logs/ and look for “Report posted successfully”. It is not working as expected sometimes.
Are there any Linux client side bigfix commands that I can run to figure this out?
If not, which API call from the client tells that the computer is successfully reporting on the console?
Will this be the right one? https://<bigfix_server>:52311/api/computers
and look for LastReportTime
Appreciate your help in advance.
