Processor Info node
A Processor Info node represents the CPU of an inferred host.
Processor Info node lifecycle
The following section describes the scenarios in which a Processor Info node is created, updated or destroyed.
A Processor Info node is created in the datastore when a host is scanned successfully. The Processor Info node is under the control of patterns. A Processor Info node is only created if one with the same key does not already exist as a child of that node.
A Processor Info node is updated every time the parent host or device is scanned successfully with sufficient credentials to run the discovery command.
To remove a Processor Info node manually, find the necessary Processor Info node, select it in the list and pick Destroy from the Actions list.
A Processor Info node is automatically destroyed if it is not seen on a subsequent scan of its parent host or device. This is an Authoritative Removal type, see Authoritative Removal. The Processor Info node is also destroyed when its parent host or device is destroyed. This is a Containment Removal type because a Processor Info cannot exist without its parent host, see Containment Removal. For information on the destruction of Host nodes, see Host node lifecycle.
