Please refer to the following steps for enabling Application Discovery:

1.  The following are the prerequisites.

  • robot 7.90 or later

  • Attribute Publisher plug-in (attr_publisher) v7.90 or later
  • The latest versions of the following probes:

    • processes (required for exchange_monitor)
    • mysql

    • sqlserver
    • oracle

The following must be performed to enable Application Discovery in USM through MCS.


  1. Click on the Pencil icon in USM



  1. Check all of the boxes, where the appropriate resources have been installed.  In my particular instance, this is Oracle and the UNIX/Windows systems.



  1. Once the Save button is clicked, it will start discovering the resources installed within your infrastructure.  This can take several minutes.
  2. Once the systems have been discovered, then you will need to select the appropriate group under “Discovered Application Systems”.



  1. Now when clicking the Monitoring tab, all of the appropriate sections show automatically.
