This section is applicable to Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition [Probes only] and MSP Edition [Probes only - Applicable, if only one Customer / Site is associated with the Probe].
Here, you will be able to Configure Network Discovery and edit the Services.
It is the process of discovering all Monitors, in a specified network. By this process, you can discover all services and terminals in the network. It discovers the Monitors, running in the default port only.
To discover all the Monitors in a network, do the following;
Go to 'Admin -> Servers & Applications' and click Discovery.
In the Configure Network Discovery page displayed, enter the Network IP Address.
Enter the SubNetMask of the network.
Initially IT360 gets all the IP addresses in the given domain, and then discovers them, by using ping test. If the ping test succeeds, and if SNMP agent is running on that machine, IT360 will try to add it to the appropriate category (i.e., windows / linux / solaris ) and collect data, else adds that server to unknown category.
When you add Network Discovery, it will rediscover the network, every time you restart IT360, and also it will do rediscovery, once in every 24 hours. Once you start network discovery, it will start discovering the servers in the network. It will wait for an interval of 20 seconds, between discovering the servers.
Yes, it will discover that monitor again in the next rediscovery, which takes place after 24 hours.
In the case of MSP (Probe, as Discovery option is not applicable to the Central), the 'Discovery' option will be shown under the 'Admin' tab, if only one Customer / Site is associated with that Probe.
Using this option, you can choose which of the services needs to be monitored, by default. The services are listed down, along with their default ports. For e.g., if you had already added a Windows Server monitor, by using this option, you can choose the services (that are running in that windows server) to be monitored. You can choose to monitor all the tomcats & IIS servers that are running in the windows server. Data Collection does not happen for services that are not enabled, thereby increasing the efficiency of monitoring, in general.
By using the 'Edit' option, you can edit the Port number. If there are multiple ports, enter the ports, as comma separated values.
