Monitoring the Discovery Service Queue

You can monitor the status of ControlPoint Discovery jobs via the Discovery Setup - View Queue tab.

Discovery Service VIEW QUEUE O365

Note that the Status may be one of two values:

0 = Running


1 = Not Running (that is, last run completed and/or next run pending)

You can also choose to Auto Refresh the monitor at a rate of anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds.

Viewing Discovery Run Detail

You can view the details of a Discovery Service run in the DiscoveryServiceO365 log, which is located in the folder where the Discovery Service files reside (by default C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint Online\ControlPointFeatures\Services\Discovery).


A new log is created each week, and the file name is in the format DiscoveryService{WeekOfTheYear}{MMMyyyy}.log.  For example, DicoveryService11Mar2022.log. The level of detail recorded in the log depends on the Discovery Trace Switch values.

Running Discovery Interactively from the ControlPoint Application

ControlPoint Application Administrators can run the Discovery Service interactively from the ControlPoint application interface between scheduled Discovery runs.

NOTE:  For Discovery to be run interactively, the Discovery Service must be installed, configured, and running.  

To run a ControlPoint Discovery interactively:

1From the Manage ControlPoint panel choose ControlPoint Management > Discovery.

NOTE:  If you are not a ControlPoint Application Administrator, this option will be hidden.

Partial Discovery

2Click [Run Now].

The results show each table in the ControlPoint Services (xcadmin) database that the Discovery Service collects data from.  The Auto Refresh Setting can be enabled to refresh after a specified number of seconds..

NOTE:  The Queue Date is the date and time of the next scheduled Discovery.
