This section reviews the Auto Discovery page in GroundWork Monitor. This tool allows administrators to automatically coordinate network resources with GroundWork Monitor's configuration database, thereby relieving administrators from having to manage all of their host and service definitions manually. In a typical scenario, administrators would use this tool to probe network addresses for host devices that meet specific criteria. Once the probes have completed, the devices are matched with the most appropriate host and service profiles, and the administrator is given the chance to review the resulting data before it is committed to GroundWork Monitor's configuration database. Taken as a whole, this process allows administrators to automatically integrate their network devices into GroundWork Monitor with a minimum of manual intervention.
