How to enable partial graph publishing for vmware probe 

UIM 8.4x,8.5xvmware probe 6.7x,6.8x

vmware probe 6.7x and earlier publishes discovery inventory i.e probe_discovery subject over nimsoft BUS upon every polling.

There are additional keys as below to minimize BUS impact and optimize the discovery performance

Optimize Publishing for the Discovery Server Version

Follow these steps:

In IM / Admin Console, select the vmware probe.

Click Raw Config.

Select Setup.

Add or find the key: discovery_server_version.

Click Add Key.



Select the key.

Double-click the Value field, enter the version for your discovery_server.

For example: 8.5

Click Apply.

Restart the probe.


Optimized publishing is now enabled. The vmware probe publishes only the delta values for the data it sends to the discovery_server.

Note:From vmware probe 6.82 onwards partial graph is enabled by default.So bus impact has been minimized out of the box and discovery performance optimized.
