List of Discovery probes

A wide variety of probes exist for the Discovery application to detect elements on your network.

The following probes are bundled with the Discovery application.

The [-F] symbol designates that the probe and sensor were in the Eureka release and removed from the Fuji release. These probes are part of Application Dependency Mapping multi-probes and multi-sensors, and the same information is discoverable using the ADM version of the probe.

The [-S] symbol designates that only the sensor has been removed from the Fuji release. The corresponding probe is called by ADM, and the ADM sensor processes the information sent back by the probe.

Probe PPT Script Description
CIM - Classify Classifies all known systems represented within a single CIM Object Manager (CIMOM). Unlike normal CIM Probes, queries are not provided directly. Rather, they are aggregated from all active CIM CI Classification Criteria. Queries are dynamically built by collecting all CIM CI Classifications and aggregating their Classification Criteria. Duplicate CIM queries are merged. CIM Queries are dynamically created by merging all CIM CI Classification Criteria.
