Recursive Discovery

Recursive Discovery

At the moment NTM does not do recursive discovery. You can point NTM at a core switch or core switches and it'll go off and discover devices connected to the core. It'd be a great benefit to NTM if it then attempted to connect and perform a discovery on each of the discovered switches. This would allow NTM to "crawl" the network itself instead of the network administrator having to tell NTM where everything is.

I like this feature but I'd also like to be able to enter subnets that the discovery wouldn't go outside of.

How does this feature differ from the "Number of Hops" feature as seen in the Discovery Settings page and discussed in the "What are Hops" section of the admin guide?: http://www.solarwinds.com/documentation/NTM/docs/NTMAdminGuide.pdf

As far as I can tell, this feature is effectively "Number of Hops" that is available in NTM v2.1.  Closing this FR as implemented.
