Discovered Processes --- the processes that are running at the time that a Server is discovered.
On a unix/linux server, you can see the running processes using the "ps" command, such as ps -ef or ps -aux (2 popular options)
Windows also has processes, which you see in the Task Manager
Discovered Packages -- the packages that have been applied on the Host.
Packages are used to install software.
To see the packages on a unix/linux server, use a command like this: rpm -qa
rpm stands for Remote Package Manager
Windows also has packages, and I don't know how to find them. Googling tells me there is a Get-Packages cmdlet for PowerShell
Discovered Services -- Services that are running at the time that a Server is discovered.
You can see Windows Services when you run the Services app / tool
Unix/linux also has services (such as the "tideway" services, the httpd service, the network service, etc).
To list the unix/linux services: chkconfig --list
Thanks for your reply ,
i hac=ve pasted a screenshot on below link
I could see Package and Discovered Package as two difference things hence wanted to know the difference b/w them .

If you look at "Packages" and "DiscoveredPackages", you will see that the "Packages" is a list of all the packages discovered so far across all of Discovery.
And, each "DiscoveredPackage" points to a list of packages that were found for a specific DiscoveryAccess node ... a DA node which is related to a host.
List of DiscoveredPackages is below ... none of these represents a specific package:
Click on the first DiscoveredPackage, and you see that it contains a list of packages specific to a single DiscoveryAccess node.
But, the Package list is simple .. just a list of all the packages across the system:
