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
- external ip address
- fully qualified domain name (fqdn)
- ip address
