TADDM and Sensors

by bluemedora_editor on May 25, 2011

TADDM Level 1 discoveries terminate the Result <-> Seed chain reaction with the Stack Scan Sensor.

  • The Stack Scan Sensor detects open ports and creates database objects based on mappings listed in the “%COLLATION_HOME%\osgi\plugins\com.ibm.cdb.discover.sensor.idd.stackscan_ 7.1.0\etc\PortAppScanSensor.properties” file.
  • The Stack Scan Sensor guesses which operating systems are running on each host using mappings listed in the “%COLLATION_HOME%\osgi\plugins\com.ibm.cdb.discover.sensor.idd.stackscan_ 7.1.0\etc\fingerprints.conf” file. It does this using icmp ping response signatures. Operating systems are not confirmed and guesses are often inaccurate.

Though it may be possible, attempting to create sensors for L1 discoveries is not recommended (as little information is available at L1). It is recommended that one submit a request for comments to IBM, recommending the modification of the Stack Scan Sensor’s port mappings.
