Auto Discovery
Architecture (1 of 2)
Two Major Subsystems
• The Discovery Subsystem: This module probes devices and records what it discovers in a
text file
• The Automation Subsystem: The module reads that text file and configures monitoring per
user defined rules
Discovery and Automation are Independent
• Automation can be used to configure devices from other external sources
• In an Auto Discovery operation BOTH are needed
