    We've designed the Watchman Client to be as administrator friendly as possible.

    Using the ClientGroup.txt file inside the installer pkg allows the mass installation of the client, and here are some tips you can use to gather information about installed clients:


    To reveal a given computer's identifier:

    defaults read /Library/MonitoringClient/ClientStatus WatchmanID  

    To reveal a given computer's ClientGroup:

    defaults read /Library/Watchman/Watchman ClientGroup
