Asset Inventory data collection

Updated: 3-9-2017

Asset Inventory data collection is automatically enabled during the Network Sonar Discovery and/or the upgrade process.

Data collected for Asset Inventory purposes uses less than 100KB of database space per node. For a larger environment consisting of roughly 1,000 servers, the total Asset Inventory data should total just under 100MB.??

Required sub-views are enabled by default for nodes with Asset Inventory enabled.

Inventory data does not need to be collected with the same degree of regularity as status information, therefore, the impact on your polling engine is minimal. Asset Inventory data collection occurs once daily. This data collection?? interval can be configured to suit your needs.
