Poll and rediscover devices immediately

Orion Platform products regularly poll devices for statistics and status, as specified in the Polling Settings. Discoveries run according to a schedule.

Use the Rediscover option to update node data that do not change often, such as machine type, system name, or location.

You can poll a device or rediscover a node manually at any time.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  3. Select the entity you want to poll or rediscover.
  4. To poll the selected entity, click Poll Now.
  5. To rediscover the selected entity, click More > Rediscover.

Your Orion Platform polls the entity, or rediscovers static data.
