Autodiscovery allows you to automatically discover and profile Hosts in your environment to quickly populate information into Opsview for monitoring. This feature is accessible from the Configuration > Autodiscovery menu.
You need to have CONFIGUREHOSTS permission defined in your Roles to access the Autodiscovery application.
The initial window below is the 'Scan Management' window; this is where scans are configured, viewed and deleted:
There are three stages to Autodiscovery
- Creating - configure scan settings to indicate to Opsview Monitor what to scan and how to pre-set how the discovered hosts should be monitored
- Running - launch the scan to locate hosts and check for services
- Validating and Importing - fine-tune the discovered host configuration in the Sandbox view and start actively monitoring the discovered hosts
Autodiscovery provides three types of Scans
- Network Scan
- VMware Scan
- Windows Scan
and provides with the ability schedule scan to automatically run at set times and intervals, so you can see if there have been any changes to your environment.
