    Hi guys. Customer question: how do I know when the next discover is going to be happen ?


    I know it happens each 24 hours, but when is the next ?


    Thank you.

    I could not find a way to get this information even using PU call backs.

    just to be clear there are two discoveries.

    snmpcollector Theory of Operations - CA Unified Infrastructure Management Probes - CA Technologies Documentation 


    Primary discovery is of devices and via discovery wizard.

    Secondary is discovery of device components.


    I think, in snmpcollector GUI in the main probe section there is "hours between rediscovery" - you can set this value and it will automatically do the component rediscovery every X hours.  You could set this to 1, then wait 1 hour, then set it back to 0 to force it. That might work for you.

    By default, "hours between rediscovery" is disabled. (value is 0) in snmpcollector probe.
