6. NNMi Discovery

One of the most important network management tasks is keeping your view of the network topology current. NNMi discovery populates the topology inventory with information about the nodes in your network. NNMi maintains this topology information through ongoing spiral discovery, which ensures that root cause analysis and the troubleshooting tools provide accurate information regarding incidents.

This chapter provides information to help you configure NNMi discovery. For an introduction to how discovery works and for detailed information about how to configure discovery, see Discovering Your Network in NNMi Help. If you have experience working with NNM and you want to see how discovery has changed in NNMi, see 25.1 Network discovery for a high-level overview of the differences.
