Device Discovery using STOAT Feature Overview and Configuration Guide

Vista Manager EX creates an integrated map using information from AMF and other plug-ins such as AWC and SNMP. Device Discovery using the STOAT (Standardized Topology Organizer and Transport) protocol, enhances the topology information present in the integrated map by providing Vista Manager EX with additional information about devices, and the links between them.

STOAT learns about network devices and their links using Vista Manager EX's AMF Plus Device Discovery feature. Vista Manager EX then uses this information to display it on the network map.

This document describes using STOAT Device Discovery with Vista Manager EX and STOAT Device Discovery from the AlliedWare Plus CLI.
