Suppressing Discovery Errors

Recurring or known errors can be suppressed so that they are not shown for future runs of a discovery thus highlighting any remaining errors for review. Suppression rules can be defined by selecting an existing discovery error and by adding customized filtering based on object name, object type, message, or problem. Errors matching suppression rules will be excluded from the Enterprise Reporter database the next time the discovery runs. Should a suppression rule require changes, the rule can be deleted and recreated at any time.

Viewing Statistics

Statistics provide information about what was collected during the discovery. Statistics are displayed once all information for that discovery is collected. When the discovery is complete, a full listing of the objects found and a summary of the database changes appears.

Only items that have changed since the last time the discovery ran are updated in the Enterprise Reporter database. This keeps your database up-to-date, while enhancing performance. You can see how many items were updated by examining Total Added, Total Changed and Total Deleted. If you see that objects were discovered but not updated, this means that they have been previously added to the database.

Viewing a Cluster's Queue

Each cluster maintains a queue for currently running discoveries. You can see the queue for a cluster whenever you have a processing discovery. The queue is a live view, so only discoveries that are currently processing or waiting to be processed are shown. As discoveries finish processing, they disappear from the queue.

For each discovery being processed, the queue shows the current status, and the number of errors encountered to date during the collection. You can drill into a discovery and see the status of individual tasks. You can also cancel a running discovery. For more information, see Canceling a Task or Discovery .

Click Manage Discoveries.

Working with Discoveries and Tasks

Occasionally, you may need to duplicate a discovery, modify a discovery, or stop a discovery or task from running. If you want to permanently stop the discovery from running, remember to remove the schedule.
