Improving discovery

BMC Discovery provides as much information as it can about your environment. To maximize this ability, features in the product help you improve the level and quality of access to the environment.

  • Discovery Status page—Discovery relies on access credentials. The Discovery Status page provides an overview of the success rate of the credentials to assist you in monitoring the rollout and currency of the credentials in use. This can monitor login credentials, Windows proxies, and SNMP credentials.
  • DiscoveryAccess page—Discovery records a large amount of useful metadata information about each access to the environment. This page describes some of the information available and how to use the results to troubleshoot access issues.

  • Discovery Conditions—Many scenarios exist in which the system can detect that data could be improved. The Discovery Condition tools enable you to see advice about actions you can take and the hosts that will be impacted by these actions.
