View all results. BMC Helix Discovery is a cloud-native discovery and dependency mapping solution for visibility into hardware, software, and service dependencies across multi-cloud environments. No matter what solutions you use, you need a single trusted source of information to proactively manage your environment. Leverage the automated discovery of assets and mapping of their technical and business dependencies as the foundation of an integrated SecOps approach, leading to business-aware security and a higher level of automation. Improve governance using included analytics to marry automated discovery and asset management sources with actual cost data. The same principles have been used in years past for data center consolidation and expansion, mergers and acquisitions, and other large scale changes in the IT environment.

Configuration and performance data for the systems should be loaded using another connector. For keeping the discovered relationships up to date, this extractor needs to be run again after re-discovery.
For more details, see Deprecated and dropped features and components. This topic contains the following sections:. The creation process step 3 only needs to be executed once, while the execution process step 4 can be repeated whenever you want to export data.
Basic properties are displayed by default in the Add ETL page. These are the most common properties that you can set for an ETL, and it is acceptable to leave the default selections for each as is. Using a log level of 5 is general practice, however, you may choose level 10 to get a high level of detail while troubleshooting.
Specify the domain where you want to add the entities created by the ETL. You can select an existing domain or create a new one. By default, a new domain is created for each ETL, with the same name of the extractor module.
As the ETL is created, a new hierarchy rule with the same name of the ETL task is automatically created, with status "active"; if you update the ETL specifying a different domain, the hierarchy rule will be updated automatically.
To view or configure Advanced properties, click Advanced. You do not need to set or modify these properties unless you want to change the way the ETL works. These properties are for advanced users and scenarios only. The OpenStack connector allows you to choose only from the given list of datasets, and you cannot include additional datasets to the run configuration of the ETL.
For more information, see Adding and modifying metric profiles. The metric level defines the amount of metric imported into the data warehouse. If you increase the level, additional load is added to the data warehouse while decreasing the metric level reduces the number of imported metrics.
For more information, see Aging Class mapping. If no metric is specified, all metrics will be loaded. Additional properties can be specified for this ETL that act as user inputs during execution. By default, this ETL module removes the domain suffix from the data source name.

You can then run the ETL task based on it. Log level Select how detailed you want the ETL log to be. The log includes Error, Warning and Info type of log information. This option is useful while testing a new ETL task. Module selection Ensure that the Based on datasource option is selected.

Collection level Metric profile selection Select any one: Use Global metric profile : Select this to use an out-of-the-box global profile, that is available on the Adding and modifying metric profiles page. By default, all ETL modules use this profile. Levels up to The metric level defines the amount of metric imported into the data warehouse.
Choose the metric level to apply on selected metrics:  Essential  Basic  Standard  Extended For more information, see Aging Class mapping.
Additional properties List of properties Additional properties can be specified for this ETL that act as user inputs during execution. Repeat this task to add more properties. Loader configuration Empty dataset behavior Choose one of the following actions if the loader encounters an empty dataset: Warn : Warn about loading an empty dataset. Ignore : Ignore the empty dataset and continue parsing. Raw also : Data will be stored on the database in different tables at the following time granularities: Raw as available from the original data source , Detail configurable, by default: 5 minutes , Hourly, Daily, Monthly.
Raw only : Data will be stored on the database in a table only at Raw granularity as available from the original data source. It uses one of the other ETLs that share lookup to create the new entity. Scheduling options Hour mask Specify a value to execute the task only during particular hours within the day. Day of week mask Select the days so that the task can be executed only during the selected days of the week. Day of month mask Specify a value to execute the task only during particular days within a month.
This means that once the task is scheduled, the task execution starts only after the specified time passes. Enqueueable Select one of the following options: False Default : While a particular task is already running, if the next execution command arises — it is ignored. True : While a particular task is already running, if the next execution command arises — it is placed in a queue and is executed as soon as the current execution ends.

Entity catalog. Sharing with Entity Catalog : Select an entity catalog from the drop-down list. Object relationships. Select any one of the following options: New domain : Create a new domain. Specify the following properties: Parent : Select a parent domain for your new domain from the domain selector control.
Name : Specify a name for your new domain. Existing domain : Select an existing domain. Make a selection for the following property: Domain : Select an existing domain from the domain selector control. If the selected Domain is already used by other hierarchy rules, a Domain Conflict option is displayed. It will stop all relations imported by ETL instances and restore only valid relations after first run; this configuration reuses existing hierarchy rule to correctly manage relation updates.

BMC Helix Discovery
I am not sure I understand discovery properly. I have documented the discovery procedure as I understanding it as thoroughly as possible below - on the assumption that - if I don't understand it, then there are probably others who are struggling to understand it too. I have highlighted all my queries in Yellow. This inform is based on ADDM v9.
BMC Discovery (ADDM)
You can't manage what you can't see. Minimize change risks by empowering your Change Advisory Board with trusted dependency data to evaluate change impact. Restore service faster by replacing dependence on tribal knowledge with reliable configuration and relationship data. Prevent outages when moving data center assets for consolidation, cloud, and virtualization projects. Our new Big Discovery appliance clustering technology delivers a fresh view of your data center as often as you need with no speed or scale limits—even for data centers with more than , servers.

Bringing a powerful CMDB in house with advanced discovery features is a great idea. Device42 focuses on complete and accurate discovery, identifying all the details about what you have running in your environment today, and clearly highlighting the interdependencies. These are shown below. A complete solution from BMC requires the purchase and integration of numerous standalone components including their Discovery product, their CMDB product, Riverbed Netflow, and storage discovery product. In contrast, Device42 is fully integrated with no standalone modules though some components are licensed separately. Device42 is truly a one-stop single source of truth because it includes a fully integrated suite of enterprise DCIM features:.
