Discovery of Network Elements and Reconciliation (DNER)
Designing of an efficient discovery module is a key challenge in a spread out network. It is necessary to keep records of each and every device in network for the company by which it can keep the details about the devices recorded in the network as per the status of presence or failure of that device. Discovery of network elements in the network is achieved through two modes of discovery that are through IP range specification i.e. range based discovery, device based discovery and individual discovery. In range based discovery they have to give the range of IP addresses which are already present in the database, this will discover existing network elements and maintained their information.
