The Secure Shell (SSH) monitor facilitates agentless discovery of SSH-enabled devices.

Linux flavors

The following Linux flavors are supported:

  • Ubuntu
  • Debian
  • CentOS
  • Fedora
  • SUSE
  • OpenSUSE
  • Red Hat Enterprise Server
  • Oracle Server
  • Amazon Linux

Components discovered

The gateway discovers the following data:

  • Basic device details such as OS, Mac, Make, Model and Serial No.
  • BIOS information
  • CPU processor information
  • Physical disk drives
  • Logical disk drives
  • Network cards information
  • Video cards information
  • Services
  • Installed applications


Before starting the discovery process for SSH-enabled devices, provide valid credentials (SSH keys) and IP addresses of SSH-base machines.

If an agent is installed on the Linux machine, the agent is used rather than the gateway.

Agentless SSH discovery

Agentless discovery uses a Linux gateway instead of an agent to discover SSH-enabled resources.

  1. Install the gateway.
  2. Create a discovery profile.
  3. Scan the devices.
