Discovery Dashboard components

You can customize the reports and reports on the dashboard to display statistics important to your environment.

Active Discovery Status report

The Active Discovery Status report displays the progress of an actively running Discovery. The information displayed is pulled from the Discovery Status module. The Progress field of the status record specifies the percent complete of the Discovery schedule. The percent complete is calculated based on previous runs of the same Discovery schedule. The progress field is empty in the following cases:
  • When you use DiscoverNow
  • When you use Discovery from a configuration item (CI).
  • During the first run of a Discovery schedule.

Active Discovery Errors report

Table 1. Active Discovery Errors report data
Column Description

Upcoming Discovery Schedules report

The Upcoming Discovery Schedule report is a graphical display of the Discovery schedules that are scheduled to be executed in the next 30 days. Each row in the timeline is a unique Discovery schedule. Different spans on the same line show the upcoming Discovery runs of that schedule. Each span represents the estimated time it will take to complete the run. The blue color inside the timespan is the actual completion time. The grey color is the maximum run time of that schedule.

You can use the timeline to determine if your scheduled Discovery runs are spread out over time, rather than all running at once.

The following Discovery scheduled runs do not appear in the timeline.
  • When you use a Quick Discovery.
  • When you use Discovery from a configuration item (CI).
  • When the Discovery Schedule run type is On Demand.
