    Managing Profiler Settings

    Updating Profiler Settings

    After you have finished configuring settings on the Profiler, you must update those settings on the device. You can do this in the Device Manager by right-clicking the device and selecting Update Device. The Device Update Options window appears and prompts you to restart IDP Profiler after the device updates. Click OK to confirm.

    The Job Information window appears indicating the status of the update. After this is finished, the device begins collecting data for the Profiler database.

    Starting the Profiler

    To manually start the Profiler, use the Devices menu, and select IDP Profiler > Start Profiler. In the Start Profiler dialog box, select the devices you want to use for profiling, and then click OK. Alternatively, you can right-click any device from the Device Manager, and select IDP Profiler > Start Profiler.

    As your devices begin profiling your internal network, they gather information about your network hosts, their peers, ports, and Layer-7 data.

    Stopping the Profiler

    To manually stop the Profiler, use the Devices menu, and select IDP Profiler > Stop Profiler. In the Stop Profiler dialog box, select the appropriate devices, and then click OK. Alternatively, you can right-click any device from the Device Manager, and select IDP Profiler > Stop Profiler.
