How Discovery Works

Entity discovery for the Solaris Integration happens “in-band”, which means that when collecting metrics for a Solaris machine the entities that those metrics relate to will also be discovered.

The entities that are discovered by the Solaris Integration and for which metrics are generated include the Solaris Host, the CPU, the individual CPU Cores, Storage Volumes, and Network Interfaces.

An integration license is not required for discovery. The license is required for metric collection.

LDOM discovery and collection: An administrative user may provide another user with sudo access apart from the root user for access to LDOM entity discovery and metrics collection.
