Crawl the Network (Autodiscovery)


For autodiscovery based on ARP, create a router profile for the seed routers. The minimal parameters to specify are the IP address, node names, and SNMP parameters (version, community string, etc.).

Create a Host Discovery Task, choose the seed routers as the devices to be collected, and then click the Crawl the network from the selected devices option in the Discovery Options tab. Also in the Discovery Options tab, fill in the name for the generated profile resulted from the host discovery so that a router profile consisting all the host discovered by this task will be created.

The output of the task can either be merged into current live network or saved as a separated network file (specification file) depending on what you choose in the Data Collector Option on the Collection Options tab.
