We are looking at using the RSP probe to monitor the Citrix PVS provisioned Xenapp servers. I have been able to discover the servers that are running by IP range and add them to monitoring. My question is wheter there is a way to configure this discovery to run automatically to rediscover by IP range so that as the Xenapp servers are spun up and offlined we are not missing any.
I'm not overly familiar with RSP, but I believe discovering hosts is for large parts orchestrated by the GUI. The probe has discover_host and discover_os callbacks that the GUI likely calls several times for your defined range and inserts that information back into the configuration file. I don't see why you couldn't have a script running with your predefined range that invokes these callbacks and inserts stuff into the configuration file accordingly.
Looking at the callback for discover_host adn discover_os, it lloks like it is limited to a single host and not a range of IP's. Iw as hoping to be able to script the callback to run against a range ofIP's and add any that may not have already been discovered. I have tried to search for a technical brief on RSP but was not able to find anything.
The discovery capabilities in rsp are only there to validate the profile. They're not intended to actually "discover" resources (which is why there's no range supported).
