Building Rule Sets for Device Detection

Rules tab of the Roles wizard provides building blocks used to build a table of device detection rules. For example, you can combine detection rules to build an expression that excludes and/or checks for specific management objects (SNMP, WMI), system characteristics, or host attribute values.

Tip: As a practical guide for choosing and combining device detection rules, you can browse default rule sets (rules shipped within WhatsUp Gold). You can find more detailed rule sets applied in default sub roles.
