Configuring Discovery Settings

Dec 18, 2015

You can set default values for discovery configuration settings, including SNMP time-out, the number of SNMP retries, rediscovery intervals, and status polling intervals.

  • SNMP Timeout: Specifies the maximum amount of time, in seconds, that the Command Center server will wait for the Citrix device to return a response for an SNMP request. If the time to receive the response exceeds the specified time-out value, the server gives up. By default, the time-out value is 5 seconds.
  • SNMP Retries: Specifies the number of times the Command Center server attempts to connect to the device before giving up. By default, the Command Center server attempts to connect to the device three times before giving up.
  • Rediscovery Interval: Specifies the duration for which Command Center waits until the next rediscovery. The default value is 60 minutes. You can specify the rediscovery interval only in terms of minutes (integer values).
  • Status Poll Interval: Specifies the duration for which Command Center waits to poll the status of all discovered devices. The default value is 1800 seconds (30 minutes). You can specify the status polling interval only in terms of seconds (integer values). For example, to specify an interval of 1 hour, type 3600.
