Discovery classification parameters

Each type of Discovery classify probe (Windows, UNIX, SNMP, etc.) returns a unique set of parameters that contains classification information.

Any of the supported parameters can be used as configurable criteria for classifying devices that Discovery finds. The tables in this page define the available parameters for each classification.

Discovery also provides a way to classify devices it finds when no credentials are available. Discovery for IP addresses makes certain assumptions about devices and the applications running on those devices from the ports that it finds open. Classification parameters for this type of Discovery are generated differently from scans in which credentials are available. See Forming Parameters for IP Address Scanning for details.
