Network Configuration Properties
To view and edit network configuration properties, from the Navigation menu, select. The Networks page appears, listing networks by IP address.
You can view and change network configuration property values and inheritance selections. From the Display menu, select Configuration Properties.
The following table lists network configuration properties.
|Property Name||Property Type||Description|
|zAutoDiscover||boolean||Specifies whether zendisc should perform auto-discovery on this network. (When performing network discovery, this property specifies whether the system should discover devices and subnetworks on the network.)|
|zDefaultNetworkTree||lines||A network subnet is automatically created for each modeled device, based on that device's subnet mask setting. To create higher-level subnets automatically from the discovery and modeling processes, add the specific subnet mask breakpoints. For example: 8, 16. If you then model a device with, for example, an IP address of 192.0.2.0, and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 (corresponding to a /24 subnet), device discovery will create a 192.0.0.0/8 network containing 192.0.2.0/16, containing 192.0.2.0/24, containing your device.|
|zDrawMapLinks||boolean||Calculating network links "on the fly" is resource-intensive. If you have a large number of devices that have been assigned locations, then drawing those map links may take a long time. You can use this property to prevent the system from drawing links for specific networks (for example, a local network comprising many devices that you know does not span multiple locations).|
|zIcon||string||Use to specify device icons that appear on the device status page, Dashboard, and network map.|
|zPingFailThresh||int||Specifies the number of pings sent without being returned before zendisc removes the device.|
|zPreferSnmpNaming||boolean||Specifies that when network discovery occurs, it uses the device name comes from SNMP rather than reverse DNS.|
|zSnmpStrictDiscovery||boolean||Specifies that if SNMP does not exist on the device during network discovery, ignore the device.|
