Selecting Inventory Beacons

IT Asset Management (Cloud)
This chapter describes how the FlexNet Inventory Agent (or its components) locally installed on a target inventory device determines which inventory beacon to use for a download or upload operation, and how you can choose between a combination of supplied options that the components may use to make this choice. It includes:
  • Background information on how the process works (see Overview)
  • Where settings are saved, and how you may update them (see Saving the Configuration)
  • The range of preference settings that affect the process of prioritizing inventory beacons (see Prioritizing Inventory Beacons)
  • Full details of each of the supported algorithms that an inventory beacon may use in the prioritizing process (see Supplied Algorithms and following topics).
