  • MFParts — Information on LPARs contained in the mainframe. See MFParts for details.
  • Identity — Serial number and description of the mainframe. See Identity for details.
  • Hardware — Information on the mainframe model and number of processsors. See Hardware for details.
  • Inference — Inference details. See Inference for details.

Discovery Access

Lists Discovery Accesses for this mainframe, grouped by scan date. When an endpoint is scanned, a Discovery Access node is created. The Discovery Access node records information such as the start time, end time, the Discovery Run of which this is a part, and the previous Discovery Access to simplify troubleshooting. Clicking a Discovery Access displays the DiscoveryAccess Page for that Discovery Access. Where a Discovery Access is about to be deleted as part of DDD aging, a trash can icon is displayed next to the Discovery Access.
