This is the data that will be collected by Discovery and imported into Insight

1. General

Insight Discovery use the protocols SSH, WMI and SNMP to discover hosts and devices. In theory, all network connected machines that can communicate through one of these protocols can be discovered.

To assemble details information from a host or device, Insight Discovery needs instructions on how to do it. These instructions are specified in Patterns and Insight Discovery comes pre-packed with a set of patterns ready to use. You can also write your own patterns if you have unusual assets to discover.

The Discovery-Tool connection Types covers the following:

SSHWMISNMP
Linux/Unix Based Operating Systems
AIX Systems
Mac OS X Operating Systems
BSD Operating Systems
HP-UX Systems
Novell Netware Systems
Solaris Systems

Microsoft Windows® 95
or later Microsoft operating systems

Network Printers
IP Cameras
Routers
Switches
Network Access Servers
Device: Printer
Device: Monitor
Device: USB Storage
Device: VideoController

The included Patterns tested with the following systems:
