Using discovery profiles

Discovery profiles help you discover your IT environment.

TADDM discovers and collects configuration information for the entire application infrastructure, identifying deployed software components, physical servers, network devices, virtual LAN, and host data used in a datacenter environment.

For example, you configure individual sensors, manage multiple configurations of the same sensor, pick the appropriate configuration based on a set of criteria, and manage sets of configuration of different sensors to be applied on a single run. You can also specify a discovery profile's access list, and it is used only during a discovery with this particular profile. A discovery profile access list works the same as a general access list.
