SNMP Discovery refers to the process Statseeker uses to:

  • Discover devices, interfaces, and other SNMP enabled components on your network
  • Collect configuration information from those devices to be used for polling, reporting, and alerting purposes

There are several methods that can be used to direct the discovery process towards the devices on your network that you want Statseeker to report on:

  • SNMP Community Strings
  • IP Address Ranges
  • Hosts File
  • Custom Data Ranges

You can also use SNMP Filtering rules to restrict which devices are returned from an SNMP Discovery walk. For more information on this see SNMP Device Filtering.

The rewalk process is a scheduled discovery that only focuses on devices already configured in Statseeker. It does not add any new devices, however it does provide the ability to discover new attributes/interfaces of existing devices. By default, a rewalk occurs daily at 11am server-time.
