    Host attributes by platform

    An overview of the attributes that BMC Helix Discovery aims to recover from the different OS platforms is shown in this pdf. The attribute descriptions for each node kind are detailed in the relevant node sections.  The discovered attributes per OS platform for Inferred nodes is shown in first couple of pages. An X denotes that the attribute can be discovered.

    This list shows the attributes from various OS platforms that can be discovered by a default BMC Discovery version 11.3 system. This does not include patterns or a TKU.


    SNMP devices

    The number of SNMP devices that can be discovered by BMC Discovery increases with each monthly TKU release.
