UMBOSS modules

Automatic Discovery and Reconciliation

With UMBOSS's umbrella vantage point, network discovery and the discovery of all others details of your ICT infrastructure is made possible. Discovered data is reconciled with NDM or external resource inventory.

Not sure what is out there in your network and IT?

Regardless of whether you have a resource inventory in place or not, you must be certain about the physical, logical, and virtual resources you manage. Without proper network discovery and reconciliation, you're at a disadvantage.

Not sure what devices you have in your network


You constantly add and remove devices, modules, SFPs and it is a challenge to understand what is out there in your network.

Not sure how network devices are connected


Understanding what is connected to what is as challenging as understanding what network devices are there.

Have no idea what topologies look like?


There are many topologies out there, such as L3, OSPF, BGP and others. If you don’t know them, troubleshooting becomes challenging.

Don’t know what servers and storages are in data center?


DCIM tool in place does not help much if you are not sure if the data are accurate and up to date.

What IP addresses and VLANs are there?


Knowing what logical and virtual resources are super important. Documenting them is always a huge challenge.

Don’t have unified view over all active resources?


Combining resource inventory data from element management systems and data of individual devices is a must to have to full understanding of your ICT.

Our solution

Automatic discovery and reconciliation from an umbrella vantage point


Discover it all: physical, logical and virtual

The Automatic Discovery and Reconciliation (ADM) module crawls through your network and hybrid data center infrastructure, scans virtual resources, and detects all logical resources with a special focus on topologies, providing an unprecedented level of inventory detail.


Any vendor, any protocol, any EMS

The plugin architecture allows for the creation of connectors for any equipment or element manager (EMS), completely vendor-agnostic. Information is obtained directly from devices and EMSs using various protocols such as SNMP, CLI, HTTP/S, API, SOAP, CORBA, NETCONF, FILE, etc.


Topologies across all domains

All gathered data is consolidated to compute diverse network topologies across layers such as BGP, OSPF, ISIS, L2, L3, SAN, etc. To create a comprehensive view, it overlays partial topologies from EMSs and network devices. The calculation of these topologies involves a variety of data sources and algorithms.


Automated discovery jobs management

ADM’s GUI allows scheduling of one-off or repetitive discovery jobs, providing granularity for resource inventory updates. Manual or triggered discovery for a group or a single device offers maximum flexibility.


Configurable reconciliation policies

When a new resource is discovered, whom do you trust: the inventory or the discovered data? The decision is entirely yours to make as you define policies that determine when automatic updates are executed or when an engineer's approval is required.


Continuous inventory refresh

Periodic rescanning is a great practice as it consistently enforces inventory accuracy. However, ADM goes beyond this—it can be integrated with an external data bus and utilize the data stream to update inventory in near-real time.


Key benefits of the Automatic Discovery and Reconciliation module

Centralized discovery

All elements of your ICT infrastructure are discovered with unprecedented detail from one point: Chassis, Module, Interface, SN, PN, SW/HW versions, etc.

Vendor-agnostic, extensive

ADM connects to any device or EMS from any vendor. The plugin architecture allows it to be extended to cover any new type of equipment.

Accurate inventory

With periodic network discovery and reconciliation, you obtain an accurate and up-to-date inventory of your active network infrastructure.

All topologies discovered

All topologies are discovered, and any changes can be easily detected. This greatly aids troubleshooting in your network or data center.

Improved change management

With our advanced inventory tracking, every change is immediately detected, allowing you to pinpoint deviations from standard procedures. This insight uncovers valuable opportunities for optimization and enhancement.

Investment planning improved

Accurate inventory easily detects unused resources, making capacity planning simpler and enabling optimal management of your ICT's existing capacities.
