Types of Tasks

Each discovery is broken down into tasks for processing. You will see these task types as you manage your discoveries. There are several types of tasks.

Resolution

Examines your scope and reduces it to the smallest number of targets. For an Microsfot® SQL discovery, a target is a SQL Server®.

Discovery

Displays as the name of the target. A discovery task collects the data from the target and updates the Enterprise Reporter database.

Group Membership

When the collection requires information from other targets, to improve performance the work is performed at the end of the collection. This can prevent the same data from being repeatedly collected.

Manually Running a Discovery

You can manually run a discovery at any time — unless it is already running. Before you manually run a discovery, you should check the Next Run column in the Manage Discoveries main view to see if the next run is scheduled to start soon. A Discovery that has no enabled schedules will not show a Next Run time.
