Hello,
I just install the Discovery plugin, it work nicely but I have a few question about it:
1: is it possible to define which graph is created ? (so far I have only traffic and some boradcast !?!?)
2: is it possible that hostname is the name of the host, not the IP address ?
3: can I do more that just define the discovery template based on the host template (with 3 field on it)

thanks for you help

Ideally, you should use the Autom8 plugin to do all the graph creation, etc.... it is more robust then the Discovery plugin in that area.

well the drawback of this, is that discovery used all the time thold and autom8, In now way I have the choice !!
I just want to discover my device, onot creating a threshold nor a graph for all my 14'000 ports !

So not very practical as discovery tools !!
