To keep the database, portlets, and the map accurate and updated with relevant connections, vRealize Infrastructure Navigator removes infrequently used dependencies.

To ensure that only the relevant dependencies between virtual machines and between services are visible, vRealize Infrastructure Navigator removes infrequently used dependencies after three days of inactivity. The inactivity period is non-configurable.

For example, a dependency between a source and a target where the source is a virtual machine and the target is a service, a virtual machine, or an external entity is removed if the dependency has not been discovered in the past inactivity period. vRealize Infrastructure Navigator tracks the last time the dependency was discovered. If discovery is turned off and later turned back on, vRealize Infrastructure Navigator resets the countdown of the inactivity period.
