Technology Knowledge Update (TKU)
Technology Knowledge Update (TKU) is the method used by BMC Atrium Discovery to distribute TPL patterns that you can install. Software identification and versioning is provided by the TKU patterns. Technology Knowledge Update is released on a regular basis and provides the following benefits:
- More recent patterns verified against known customer data.
- Greater number of software products supported by BMC Atrium Discovery.
- Certain existing customer patterns for off-the-shelf software can be removed or created as standard content as part of the update.
- Updates can be applied without requiring a BMC Atrium Discovery upgrade.
Technology Knowledge Update patterns are distributed as a zip file which is uploaded to the appliance. See Uploading and activating a TKU for more information.
