A large amount of file evidence may be included in inventory data when the FlexNet inventory agent gathers Oracle Fusion Middleware inventory data, potentially leading to performance challenges with the inventory import process.
The Oracle Fusion Middleware scan requires the inventory agent's IncludeDirectory preference to be set to "/" on Unix-like operating systems to gather file inventory data from all directories on the filesystem. In this configuration, challenges can arise handling the volume of file data gathered from devices with large file systems. For example, inventory import processing may take a long time to process all of the data.
