The Secure Shell (SSH) monitor facilitates agentless discovery of SSH-enabled devices.
The following Linux flavors are supported:
- Red Hat Enterprise Server
- Oracle Server
- Amazon Linux
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
- 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.
- Install the gateway.
- Create a discovery profile.
- Scan the devices.
