Load balancer: ACE

Discovery identifies and classifies information about ACE load balancers.

Prerequisites and important information

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. This classification has 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.

Credentials

Configure SNMP credentials or (optionally) SSH credentials.
