Applications and Benefits


The Discovery Progress diagnostics view is useful for

  • Seeing where SiteAudit is in the discovery progress
  • Confirming that discovery has completed
  • Determining if / when discovery has completed on a network, range or device
  • Determining whether the discovery criteria should be optimized.  For instance, if the view shows that discovery will take a long time to complete, this indicates that SiteAudit is performing discovery on very large or very slow networks. You should modify discovery so that only addresses or ranges having printers are discovered.
