Issue:
In CA Software Asset Manager, is there any documentation on the parameters for the CA SAM Product Recognition import preprocessor? No information was available for these in the administration guide. 

The parameters are; 
data_source 
inv_raw_data_source 
write_mode 
signatures_arp 
signatures_msi 
signatures_generic 
signatures_file 
signatures_tag 
metering 
matching_strategy 
tracking 
tracking_delete_old_data
Resolution:
There is a description on these fields in the Admin guide. Look in the section Product Recognition (Preprocessor). 
It may be a slightly different section, depending on the version. The Product Recognition (Preprocessor) will normally be around section 4.4.43.
