fusioninventory-netdiscovery can be used to run a network discovery task without a GLPI server.


Set the first IP address of the network range to scan.
Set the last IP address of the network range to scan.
List of ports to try, defaults to: 161

Set it to 161,16100 to first try on default port and then on 16100.

List of protocols to try, defaults to: udp/ipv4

Possible values are: udp/ipv4,udp/ipv6,tcp/ipv4,tcp/ipv6

Use given string as SNMP community (assume SNMPv1).
Use given string as SNMP credentials specification. This specification is a comma-separated list of key:value authentication parameters, such as:
  • version:2c,community:public
  • version:3,username:admin,authprotocol:sha,authpassword:s3cr3t
  • etc.
Set SNMP timeout, in seconds.
Set GLPI entity.
Use given number of inventory threads.
Output server-agent control messages, in addition to inventory result itself.
Turn the debug mode on. Multiple usage allowed, for additional verbosity.


Run a discovery against a network range, using SNMP version 1:

    $> fusioninventory-netdiscovery --first --last \
    --community public

Run a discovery against a network range, using multiple SNMP credentials:

    $> fusioninventory-netdiscovery --first --last \
    --credentials version:2c,community:public \
    --credentials version:3,username:admin,authprotocol:sha,authpassword:s3cr3t
