Configure Auto-Discovery Scanning and Reporting

This page lists agent properties that control auto-inventory scanning and reporting. For more information, see Configure Auto-Discovery Frequency in vFabric Hyperic Administration.

autoinventory.defaultScan.interval.millis

Description

Specifies how frequently the agent performs a default autoinventory scan.

The default scan detects servers and platform services, typically using the process table or the Windows registry. Default scans are less resource-intensive than runtime scans.

Default

Commented out, set to 86,400,000 milliseconds, or 1 day.

Note however, that by default, the agent performs the default scan at startup and every 15 minutes thereafter.

autoinventory.runtimeScan.interval.millis

Description

Specifies how frequently the agent performs a runtime scan.

A runtime scan may use more resource-intensive methods to detect services than a default scan. For instance, a runtime scan may involve issuing an SQL query or looking up an MBean.

Default

86,400,000 milliseconds, or 1 day.
