Automatic Discovery for Devices

Automatic Discovery for Devices

When all devices within an IP segment need to be added to the eSight, you can use automatic discovery to add the devices to the eSight in batches.

Prerequisites

  • You have the operation rights for Access Resource.
  • Before you start an automatic discovery task, check the Exclusion List so that all devices that need to be discovered are automatically discovered. If a network segment or IP address is set to an excluded network segment or IP address, it is skipped during automatic discovery. Specifically, choose Resource > Common from the main menu, and select Add Resource > Automatic Task Management from the navigation tree on the left.. On the Exclusion List tab page, check the excluded network segments or IP addresses.

Context

The automatic discovery task that is being executed each time is displayed in the Task List of the Automatic Task Management page. If you want to execute the task again, perform the following operations:

Select the task that you want to execute and click Start.

NOTE:

Before you start an automatic discovery task, check the Exclusion List and ensure that all devices to be added are in the list.

Procedure

  1. Before you start an automatic discovery task, check the Exclusion List. Choose Resource > Common from the main menu, and select Add Resource > Automatic Discovery from the navigation tree on the left.

  2. Select an automatic discovery mode.

    NOTE:
    • The eSight provides four automatic discovery modes: Network segment Discovery (simple), Network segment Discovery (advanced), By ARP, and By route.
    • You can click the button on the upper right corner to switch the automatic discovery mode.

      By default, the simple mode is provided, and the button name on the Auto Discovery page is Switch to Another Mode. Click Switch to Another Mode to switch to the Select auto discovery mode page. Select an automatic discovery mode based on actual conditions.

  3. Set parameters of automatic discovery tasks.

      2. Select the task type from the Type drop-down list box.

        If you select Once, you must set Description.

        If you select By hour, you must enter a value in the Frequency text box, set Start time and Description, and select the Instant execution.

        If you select By day, By week, or By month, set Start time for the automatic discovery task, and select the Instant execution.

    4. Expand Protocol Settings and set SNMP protocol parameters.
      1. Select a protocol type.

The eSight stops automatic discovery when all level 2 devices are discovered.
        • When the number of hops is large, the automatic discovery process consumes long time and high bandwidth, which affects network performance.
      2. Set Seed IP address.
        NOTE:

        It is recommended that you set Seed IP address as the IP address of a gateway or a layer 3 device (such as a router) to discover more devices.
