ScienceLogic received a patent for its iterative agentless network device discovery technology (Intelligent Auto-Discovery).

Granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, ScienceLogic’s “Self Configuring Network Management System,” U.S. Patent No. 9,077,611 B2, covers intelligent auto-discovery technology that allows its product to efficiently discover network devices using a succession of data collection templates that uncover more device detail with each iteration. Customers dramatically benefit from this capability as it permits ScienceLogic’s IT monitoring software to automatically apply the specific monitoring required to track configuration and performance of each individual device in highly dynamic cloud environments.

Beyond simple ping and SNMP polling, ScienceLogic’s auto-discovery applies multiple approaches to discover device characteristics via SSH, WMI, PowerShell, database connections and others, including custom modern APIs. Once the device is discovered and characterized, the associated monitoring policies for that class of device are automatically enabled and data is collected with no further action required by the user.

“ScienceLogic continues to rapidly innovate with the goal of making the highly complex task of monitoring the world’s IT assets easier and less costly for our customers,” said Dave Link, Chairman and CEO, ScienceLogic. “This auto-discovery patent grant will be followed by many others as we extend our position as the market leading hybrid IT monitoring company.”

Patent Detail: ScienceLogic discovers network devices using a succession of data collection templates that uncover more device detail with each iteration, to build a detailed device view. Beyond simple ping and SNMP polling, multiple approaches can be applied automatically to discover device characteristics via SSH, WMI, PowerShell, database connections and others, including custom APIs. Once the device is discovered and characterized, the associated monitoring policies for that class of device are automatically enabled and data is collected with no further action by the user. This agentless discovery method is unique to ScienceLogic.
