This documentation refers to a previously released version of BMC Discovery.
See the information on this topic for the latest version (11.2) or version 11.1.

BMC Discovery includes a number of predefined reports. Reports operate in the same way as searches: when a report is selected, a query is run to find matching objects. The results are displayed in the form of a list page,from which details of individual objects can be selected. 

All of these reports can be added to a dashboard. See Using and customizing dashboards for more information. Reports can also be located using the search in the UI. Keywords entered there are matched against the titles and descriptions of the reports.

The following section lists the reports that are available in BMC Discovery:

Discovery Operation reports

Report NameDescription

Current Endpoint Access Analysis

Allows the analysis of the latest endpoint access to assist discovery troubleshooting.

Host Endpoints Not Updating

List of Endpoints related to existing Host nodes that did not cause a Host node update on their last access.
Summary of Last Host AccessShows a summary of the access method used on the last access to each Host.

Devices near Removal Threshold

Show a list of scanned devices that have not been confirmed, and so are near their removal thresholds. Gives an approximate indication of the removal deadline.

Devices with Endpoint Identity Change

Shows a list of IP addresses for which the most recently discovered device is different to the device previously discovered via that address. That may be because the previous device has a new IP address, because it has been decommissioned, or because it has changed so much that it appears to be a different device.

Seen but unscanned IPs

This report displays details of Hosts that were seen but not scanned. That is, a Host that was not discovered, for example because it was behind a firewall or on a subnet that was not scanned. However, its existence can be inferred by network connections to its IP address from known hosts.

Seen but unscanned IPs with Ports

This report displays details of Hosts that were seen but not scanned. That is, a Host that was not discovered, for example because it was behind a firewall or on a subnet that was not scanned. However, its existence can be inferred by network connections to its IP address from known hosts. This report includes which port the connection was to.

Seen but unscanned IPs Detail Report

This report displays details of Hosts that were seen but not scanned. That is, a Host that was not discovered, for example because it was behind a firewall or on a subnet that was not scanned.However, its existence can be inferred by network connections to its IP address from known hosts.
