General information

Application enables various methods of network devices scanning. Scanning defines devices’ state (active/inactive), measures various data like response time and gathers different detailed information.

Scanning methods can be assigned to devices ​​by using device editor, the context menu of a device or by using Group Operations. See Scanning methods settings for more information.

If a device doesn’t contain any scanning method, it is displayed as always active. But, if such device is also connected with other devices, then its status depends on them. For example, if there is a switch on the map, which is not scanned, and it is connected to other devices, if one of these devices is active, then the switch will be displayed as active. All connected devices are detected automatically by connection line presence on the network map. See Connections for more information.
