The following definitions are used throughout this documentation:

  1. Network
    The set of Endpoints that you will be maintaining with CCleaner Network.  A Network will normally contain all the Endpoints in your Network, but you can group and organize them as you wish. A Network can contain Endpoints from a Microsoft Domain, Terminal Services, a LAN, or a combination of all of these.
    Each Network requires its own license.
  2. Endpoint
    A computer or host, real or virtual.
  3. Group
    A way of subdividing a Network.
  4. Action
    A process or task performed by CCleaner Network, such as Cleaning or Defragging.  Actions can be performed on individual Endpoints, Groups, or even entire Networks in a single click.
  5. Management Console
    The graphical user interface that is used to manage CCleaner Network.
  6. Management Service
    The Service that runs on the local server or administrator's computer and handles all the communication to the Endpoints on a Network. This is separate to the Management Console and can be connected to multiple Management Consoles so you can manage your Network from any Endpoint you specify.
  7. Endpoint Agent
    The client that you need to install on every Endpoint on your Network to do the actual cleaning and auditing tasks.
