Automatic Network Discovery
In most network environments there is an assortment of devices, vendors and operating systems - without the right discovery procedure in the monitoring tool
one could end up drawing circles (and devices) in the air! OpManager simplifies the discovery procedure in many ways:
By performing an 'IP sweep', OpManager automatically discovers all the devices present within a provided IP range or within a whole network.
By discovery using ICMP, SNMP (V1, V2 and V3), WMI and Telnet, the Network Administrator is not constrained to any specific protocol and can discover a wide range of devices - SNMP-enabled or even non-SNMP devices.
The discovery process immediately provides details such as name, device type, Operating System, services running and other important device configuration details.
A Discovery Wizard allows one to set discovery credentials, select services to be discovered and choose the devices to be discovered and imported for monitoring.
