Orion Platform products poll devices for statistics and status regularly, as specified in the Polling Settings. Discoveries run according to their schedule.

Use the Rediscover option to update node data that do not change often, such as machine type, system name, or location.

You can poll a device or rediscover a node manually at any time.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  3. Select the entity you want to poll or rediscover.
  4. To poll the selected entity, click Poll Now.
  5. To rediscover the selected entity, click More > Rediscover.

Your Orion Platform polls the entity, or rediscovers static data.

What is polled on the Orion Rediscovery Interval?
