FlexNet Manager Suite release 2019 R1.4 introduces the concept ofinventory groupsthat can be used to restrictFlexNet inventory agentcommunication to a subset ofinventory beacons. By limiting whichinventory beacons can be contacted by whichFlexNet inventory agents you may be able to reduce infrastructure overhead, providing more control over the load balancing of communications, uploads, and network traffic.
A newInventory group settingssection has been added to theInventory Settingspage (Discovery & Inventory > Settings > Inventory group settings). Here, you can combine:
One or more predefined target sets of inventory devices, whereFlexNet inventory agentmay be locally installed, with
A pool of one or moreinventory beacons.
