IM&M Discovery represents a breakthrough in providing an inexpensive, simple automated method for creating an accurate, up-to-date inventory of all devices on your network.

IM&M Discovery provides the underpinning of all the other modules in the suite; it is very cost effective and is a comprehensive management solution in its’ own right. Set up is quick and easy using CSV information to populate the database and schedule the scanning process.

Moves and changes are automated, reporting is comprehensive and simple – no technical knowledge required – and capacity management is simply a couple of clicks away.

In addition to the Device to switch port visibility, the system provides numerous import and export functions, logging and change history and a cut down helpdesk system. As well as providing visibility and control the solution also assists in the management of your carbon footprint.

IM&M can be installed on a virtual environment or a hardware appliance. For a breakdown of all the options we provide, please contact us with your intended usage.

If you opt for a hardware appliance, we will provide a small appliance or server based on your requirements.

If you opt to install IM&M on your own virtual machine, the guidelines are below:

Minimum Server Specifications

  • Dual Core Pentium CPU 2.3GHz
  • 4GB DDR3 RAM
  • 25GB HDD (Thin Provisioned)

Recommended Server Specifications*

  • Quad Core Xeon E3 CPU, 3.6GHz
  • 16GB DDR3 RAM
  • 25GB SSD (Thin Provisioned)

*The recommended server specification is geared towards optimum performance for a system running Discovery, Asset, and Connect – with large automated and on-demand reports, scheduled scans, and high-resolution media.

Pre-requisites

  • IM&M can receive data through CSV imports, DNS, SNMP, and WMI.
  • Discovery can be built quickly and easily via CSV import, or manual population of your IP ranges. After that, the scheduled scans automate the process.
  • Having SNMP configured on all the devices you wish to poll – including switches, workstations, servers and printers – will allow IM&M to display device information and monitor capacity.
  • With WMI configured on your workstations, IM&M can monitor user details, user activity, and installed applications.
    • WMI requires a light WMI Agent to be installed on Windows device.
    • We can also import user information from SCCM if required.
