    Memory is a system attribute typically collected by asset management applications. UIM is for monitoring so system memory is used only from the perspective of monitoring, for example to alarm if usage hits a predefined threshold. Other system attributes such as name, IP, MAC, OS, etc are used for device correlation, and memory is not one of those attributes used for correlation.

    Hi

    Can check if the device showing memory data in discovery tables is also being monitored by discovery_agent under some scope using other protocols like WMI / SSH etc depending on OS .This will pull in additional data

    Hi Ravi ,

    But , without creating authentication profiles the data is collected in 8.51 UIM version .

    Why the same is not fetching that memory from  computer system attribute table  in 9.0.2 UIM version?

    Hi

    Pls check which probes are monitoring the server you are seeing the data .Could be probe sending discovery data like vmware / snmpcollector
