Discovery Results Tab/Pane

This tab/pane displays the discovery results from discovery job runs or from discovery activities that ran in Management Zones.

To access

Select Data Flow Management > Universal Discovery:

  • Zone-based Discovery tab > a node in the tree > Discovery Status pane (on the right) > Results tab.

  • Discovery Modules/Jobs tab> a node in the tree > Details tab (on the right) > Discovery Results pane.

Important Information

UCMDB includes a purging mechanism for managing old discovery result statistics. This mechanism enables faster display of discovery result statuses. That is, the old result records are merged and are therefore still available for the user. This feature is controlled by two system parameters:

  • Discovery Statistics Interval by Hours. This property defines the interval of merging discovery results (the interval for running the purging mechanism).

  • results statistics archive period. This property defines the number of days after which discovery results are archived (the number of days after which the statistics are considered old).
