Data collected by Discovery on load balancers

Discovery can collect data about network routers, switches, and applications.

Discovery supports data collection from the following applications and hardware:
  • A10
  • Apache mod_jk and Apache mod_proxy
  • Big-IP F5 Traffic Manager
  • Cisco
  • Citrix NetScaler
  • HAProxy
  • Alteon
  • ACE
  • Radware
Important: Discovery treats hardware load balancers as network devices and attempts to discover them primarily using SNMP. If a load balancer in your system running on a Linux host has SNMP and SSH ports open, Discovery might classify it based on the SSH port, which has classification priority over SNMP. To ensure that Discovery properly classifies your hardware load balancers, create a Discovery behavior for load balancers that includes SNMP but not SSH. Software load balancers are treated as applications.
