Scan process and scan results

Scan process

When a device is detected, the scanner checks if a matching object already exists in the network tree.
Devices can be distinguished by one of the two criteria:

  • by hardware;
  • by network name.

If a matching object already exists, its properties are updated.

You can monitor and control the scanning process using the Scanner status widget.

 

Scan results

New devices are placed in a separate group in the network tree. The existing structure of the network tree will remain unchanged.

You can specify the name of the destination group when manually setting up a scan task.

 

If no new devices are found, then the group is not created.
