       devdiscover - Performs SNMP discovery and generates Torrus XML configuration file.


       torrus devdiscover [--in=XMLFILE] [options...] [XMLFILES]


       devdiscover performs SNMP discovery using the XMLFILE for the discovery instructions. It
       generates a corresponding Torrus XML configuration file. See Torrus SNMP Discovery User
       Guide for details.

       The generic input file, or device discovery XML (DDX), may be generated by the genddx
       utility, and then edited and maintained manually.  Multiple input files may be specified
       by several instances of --in option, or simply as arguments.

       Input file name is searched in the current directory, and then in /etc/torrus/discovery/.


           Creates "data-dir" directories.

           Limits the discovery to the output files matching the regular expression REGEXP. If
           multiple --limit options are given, the output file must match at least one of them to
           be processed. Bundle files will be written if all their member XML files are

           With this option enabled, "devdiscover" will write the bundle file even if some of the
           bundle members were not created because of errors.

           Requires --forcebundle. In case if an SNMP device is not available, the bundle file
           will include an older version of the XML output file, provided that it exists and it
           is not older than the specified number of days.

           If the threads are enabled in the local Perl, this option determines how many parallel
           discovery threads are to be executed.  The discovery jobs are distributed per output
           files, thus it makes sence to use threads only when there are many output files
           defined in a single DDX file.
