This documentation relates to the latest released version of BMC Discovery.
See the information on this topic for versions 11.2 or 11.1.

An overview of the attributes that BMC Discovery aims to recover from the different OS platforms is shown in the tables below. The attribute descriptions for each node kind are detailed in the relevant node sections later in this document.

The discovered attributes per OS platform for Inferred nodes is shown in the Table below. An X denotes that the attribute can be discovered.

This list shows the attributes from various OS platforms that can be discovered by a default BMC Discovery version 11.3 system. This does not include patterns or a TKU.

Some of my attributes are missing!

Some attributes might not be discovered on a given OS in your environment due to privilege requirements, hardware and software configurations, customizations, firewall configurations, security policies, and so forth. Additional attributes might be discovered by patterns, whether TKU provided, or your own custom patterns.

Patterns are now used to discover processor information. The patterns will be updates as required, and delivered as part of monthly TKU release. For full details of the CPU information that can be determined, for each platform, for each processor information release, see Configipedia processor information.

This page no longer carries details of processor information discovered by platform.
