Discovery From Other Data Sources

You can configure whether Data Aggregator automatically discovers devices that are synchronized with npc by other data sources. This option is available when you register Data Aggregator, or when you edit data source options. When enabled, Data Aggregator attempts to discover devices from all other data sources. You cannot refine this capability to a particular set of data sources. By default, this option is disabled.

(3.6 GA only) Discovery Behavior From Other Data Sources
This option is removed from
CA Performance Management
3.6.1 and higher.
You can configure whether Data Aggregator automatically discovers devices that are synchronized with
Performance Center
by other data sources. This option is available when you register Data Aggregator, or when you edit data source options. When enabled, Data Aggregator attempts to discover devices from 
all
other data sources. You cannot refine this capability to a particular set of data sources. By default, this option is disabled.
To enable this option, edit a data source and select
Discover devices from other data sources
. For more information, see Configure a Data Source.
When enabled, Data Aggregator attempts to discover any new devices it learns about from
Performance Center
from that point forward. To discover devices that were synchronized with
Performance Center
in the past, run a full resynchronization. For more information, see Synchronize Data Sources.
If you disable this option,
CA Performance Management
 continues to monitor any devices that were discovered already.
(3.6.1 and higher only) Contribute Inventory to the Data Aggregator
This option is available with
CA Performance Management
3.6.1 and higher only.
You can configure whether all new inventory from a data source contributes to the Data Aggregator.
To enable this option, edit a data source and select
Contribute inventory to the Data Aggregator
. If unselected, the existing inventory remains the same, and no new data source inventory contributes to the Data Aggregator.
Automatic synchronization includes only devices that are discovered after you select this option. To discover previously discovered devices, perform a full synchronization of the Data Aggregator. 
CA Performance Management
 creates a discovery profile that includes the IP addresses of the devices. This discovery profile attempts discovery once per day. For more information, see Configure a Data Source and Synchronize Data Sources.
