A generic network device is any SNMP enabled device that is not already documented by a dedicated agent. If an existing agent is already available - for example the Network Switch agent it is recommended that the dedicated agent is used.

Generic network devices can be detected using the Network Device Search Scan Task which is configured for generic network devices by default or manually using the Generic Network Device List Scan Task.

The following information is collected by the agent:

  • Name

  • Description

  • ARP cache

  • Network Ports

  • IP addresses

  • Routing table
