How does Kenna determine if an asset already exists?

Kenna makes every attempt to de-duplicate asset data in the platform. For example, in a DHCP environment, Kenna would not create a new asset every time a new IP was assigned to a host. 

Below is the order of preference (High to Low) given to asset locator data in order to assess if an asset already exists in the environment:

  •     mac address
  •     netbios
  •     external ip address
  •     hostname
  •     url
  •     file
  •     ec2
  •     fully qualified domain name (fqdn)
  •     application
  •     ip address
