Check nodes polled by agents for changes

Agent discovery has an option to keep nodes that use agents updated. Select this option so the Orion server can find new volumes, interfaces, and other objects on nodes that are polled by an agent.

While normal discovery finds new nodes and adds them to the Orion server, this is not true for nodes using the agent. Agent discovery is an extension to the standard discovery process.

A discovery profile may contain:

  • Nodes using both the agent and non-agent nodes
  • Non-agent nodes
  • Agent nodes
