If you’re struggling with employees reporting network issues while working from home, this worklet allows you to perform a network health check on your remote Windows workstations.

The worklet reports on the following functions: Wi-Fi strength, results of a ping test and traceroute out again to 8.8.8.8, total Windows uptime, and CPU and RAM usage over a 10s timeframe. The resulting data is captured into an activity log that can be exported as a .CSV file.

View more detailed information about the worklet functionality and script in the original posting on the Automox community. You can assign this Worklet to any number of your Windows groups and execute the policy. You can also set the Worklet to run on a schedule like any other Worklet.
