    • Tools for Initial Analysis
      • One of Atrium Discovery’s key goals is to allow a rapid initial analysis of a datacenter
      • A key tool to starting this process is the Automatic Grouping feature
      • This allows rapid formation of Manual Groups
      • Once Groups of Hosts are defined then they can easily be exported as a Host Profile report
    • Finding Automatic Grouping
      • Automatic Grouping Channel

    • Host Profiles – The Problem
      • It is not always convenient to present data directly from the Atrium Discovery UI
      • At several points in a Atrium Discovery supported project it is useful to be able to produce an report of hosts of interest
    • Host Profiles – The Answer
      • Traditionally this would be done by exporting the data and preparing it in a tool such as Microsoft Excel
      • You can export Host Profiles, a PDF report of a collection of Hosts
    • Host Profile Contents (1)
      • Identity and update time

        • Bundles together similar communication to provide a summary
        • Includes process details where those can be found
    • Host Profile Contents (4)
      • Unknown Hosts Communication table
        • Bundles together similar communication to provide a summary
        • Includes process details where those can be found on the local end
        • These remote hosts have not been scanned so consideration should be given to doing so if they present a risk
    • Host Profile Creation
      • Select a collection of Hosts of interest
      • Select “Create Host Profile” from Actions menu
      • The UI will confirm the report is being generated
      • Reports > PDF Reports
        • Progress will be indicated as the report is generated
        • Completed reports can be downloaded for viewing
