devdiscover performs SNMP discovery using the XMLFILE
for the discovery instructions. It generates a corresponding
Torrus XML configuration file. See Torrus SNMP Discovery User Guide for
The generic input file, or device discovery XML (DDX), may be generated
by the genddx utility, and then edited and maintained manually.
Multiple input files may be specified by several instances of --in
option, or simply as arguments.
Input file name is searched in the current directory, and then in
Creates "data-dir" directories.
Limits the discovery to the output files matching the regular expression
With this option enabled, "devdiscover" will write the bundle
file even if some of the bundle members were not created because of errors.
Requires --forcebundle. In case if an SNMP device is not available,
the bundle file will include an older version of the XML output file,
provided that it exists and it is not older than the specified number of days.
If the threads are enabled in the local Perl, this option determins
how many parallel discovery threads are to be executed.
The discovery jobs are distributed per output files, thus it makes
sence to use threads only when there are many output files defined in
a single DDX file.
