Introducing Discovery schedules and smarter inventory

Discovery Manager has been completely redesigned and now offers much more flexibility and customization to the core feature of vScope – World leading IT inventory.

Introducing Schedules – Discover what you want, when you want

With schedules you can make vScope scan any range or platform at different times during the day. Perfect for remote branches, multiple AD updates every day or just weekly inventories of larger networks.

Improve performance with actionable suggestions

Make your Discovery run better with help of suggestions generated from your Discovery’s actual performance.

Easier to troubleshoot

Select Discovery schedule and a session to view detailed information about that discovery. With filters you will be able to quickly find improvements and misconfigurations.

Streamlined setup with Smart Targets

Smart Targets are designed to help you to faster increase the coverage of your Discovery scope. With help of smart algorithms vScope will now automatically classify targets (from eg. vCenter, Active Directory etc.) into various platforms. Assign a credential to these Smart Targets and let vScope do the magic for you. Smart Targets are marked Green in Discovery Manager.
