Partial Graph Discovery

Blog Post created by DavidM Employee on Dec 21, 2017

By default, it is set to Full Graph discovery, which means that on every monitoring cycle, the probe also publishes the entire topology every time.  This can send an overwhelming number of probe_discovery messages.

 

With Partial Graph Discovery the probe will instead only publish a graph of "new and changed" invenroy items every monitoring cycle, and will only send a "full" discovery graph once every 24 hours, or on probe activation.   

 


To implement go to raw configure via Shift + mouse right click > setup > new key >  discovery_server_version > value > 8.xx
8.xx equals the revision of discovery_server

 

The storage probes know to support partial graph discovery are:
celerra    
clariion    
hitachi    
hp_3par    
ibm_ds_next    
ibm_svc
ibm-ds    
netapp_ontap    
purestorage    
vplex    
xtremio
