glide.discovery.network_discovery.functionality Networks discovery functionality
  • Type : string
  • Default value: SNMP only
glide.discovery.max_range_size Max range size Specifies the maximum number of IP addresses that will be scanned in a single Shazzam probe. If a range has more IP addresses than this value, the remaining IP addresses will be skipped and a warning will be logged.
glide.discovery.max_concurrent_invocations_per_schedule Maximum concurrent invocations per schedule
  • Type : integer
  • Default value: 3
glide.discovery.log_message_length Log Message Length
glide.discovery.L3_mapping Map servers and network devices to routers and layer-3 switches
glide.discovery.ip_service_affinity IP service affinity
glide.discovery.hostname.wmi_trusted WMI is trusted host name source
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: false
glide.discovery.hostname.ssh_trusted SSH is trusted host name source
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: false
glide.discovery.hostname.snmp_trusted SNMP is trusted host name source
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: false

  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: true

  • Type : choice list
  • Default value: Lower case
  • Additional options: Upper case, No change
glide.discovery.hostname.always_update Always update host name
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: true
glide.discovery.fqdn.regex DNS Host Name And Domain Name Regex
  • Type : string
  • Default value: ^([^.]+)\.((?:[^.]+\.)+[^.]+)$
glide.discovery.enforce_unique_ips Enforce unique IP addresses Ignores the IP address after Discovery encounters subsequent devices that use the same IP address. Each time a computer, printer, or network gear is discovered, and that device has a valid IP address, then any other devices with the same IP address have their IP address field cleared. If disabled, stores the IP address for each device.
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: false
glide.discovery.enforce_ip_sync Enforce syncing of IP addresses Sets the first IP address. Each time a computer is discovered, and that device has multiple NICs, one of the IP addresses associated with the NICs will be chosen as the IP Address field of the CI. A value of false collects all NIC IP addresses.
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: true
glide.discovery.domain.name.nbt Set OS domain name by NBT or WMI
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: true
glide.discovery.discoverable.network.max.netmask.bits Maximum netmask size for discoverable networks (bits)
  • Type : integer
  • Default value: 28
glide.discovery.discover_software Discover software packages
glide.discovery.debug.network_discovery Network discovery debugging
glide.discovery.debug.ci_identification CI identification debugging
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: false
glide.discovery.bgp_router_disable BGP router exploration disable
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: true
glide.discovery.application_profile_discovery Application Profile Discovery
glide.discovery.application_mapping Application mapping
glide.discovery.apd.windows_location Application profile discovery location for Windows systems
glide.discovery.apd.unix_location Application profile discovery location for UNIX based systems
glide.discovery.active_processes_filter Active Processes Filter
  • Type : true | false
  • Default value: false
glide.discovery.use_cmdb_identifiers Handle identification and reconciliation with the CMDB API instead of Discovery implementation.
  • Type: true | false
  • Default value: false
glide.eccprobe.awsrestprobe.max_retries Maximum number of reconnection attempts an AWS REST probe makes after receiving a rate limit exceeded error from Amazon Web Services (AWS). The maximum allowable number of retries is 10. Setting negative values is equivalent to setting the maximum value.
Note: Retries use exponential backoff (2^x). For example, the system waits 1 second before the first retry, 2 seconds until the second retry, 4 seconds until the third retry, and so on, until the total allowed retry time limit is exceeded. Make sure you configure enough total wait time in the glide.eccprobe.awsrestprobe.max_wait property to allow the maximum number of retries.
  • Type: integer
  • Default value: 4
glide.eccprobe.awsrestprobe.max_wait Maximum amount of time, in seconds, that an AWS REST probe continues to attempt to reconnect with Amazon Web Services (AWS) after receiving a rate limit exceeded error. This is the total amount of time used by all the probe’s retry attempts (from the glide.eccprobe.awsrestprobe.max_retries property). The maximum allowable time is 2046 seconds. Setting negative values is equivalent to setting the maximum value.
  • Type: integer
  • Default value: 30
