Pre-Configured Audit Profiles
Alloy Discovery provides with three pre-configured profiles, that are generally sufficient for many organizations. You can use them as they are, customize them as needed, or create your own. Pre-configured Audit Profiles work as follows:
- Full audit — Collects full hardware and software inventory. Use this profile if you are not interested in searching computers’ hard drives for individual files.
- Full audit with file scan — Collects full hardware and software inventory and searches for .exe files. Use this profile only when you are interested in those files because audit with this profile may take a significant amount of time to complete.
- Quick audit without software discovery — Quickly collects hardware inventory on audited computers. However, with this profile the audit will not collect it does not collect any information about installed software products.
