Just-In-Time Discovery Overview

Universal Discovery integrates with RUM to provide real time, passive discovery and monitoring of topology changes in a given environment. This is known as the Just-In-Time (JIT) discovery mechanism.

One or more RUM Engines can be configured to interact with Universal Discovery's Data Flow Probes. The RUM Engine gathers information from RUM Probes in its network, and passes relevant information on to the Data Flow Probes. From the Universal Discovery perspective, the RUM Engines behave as passive discovery probes, where the Data Flow Probes are the active probes.

The passive probes also send notifications about discovered information to the Data Flow Probes. Notifications can include, for example, changes in environment topology, such as an unseen IP address, or software that is not running. You configure these notifications in Universal Discovery. Based on these notifications, the Data Flow Probes report, add, or remove relevant CIs to or from the UCMDB Server, or designate them as candidates for deletion.

For details about setting up the passive discovery probes and running JIT Discovery, see How to Configure Just-In-Time Discovery.
