Inventory Forwarding general Questions and Asnwers.
Question: What type of traffic is generated during an inventory forward event?
Answer: Notification Server inventory forwarding uses NSE files to forward data between NS servers.
Question: How is the information categorized or grouped during an inventory forward event?
Answer: The information is categorized, or grouped, by data class. There is one NSE file generated per data class. However, should the contents of a data class cause the NSE file to exceed 2 MB in size, a second file is created, and a third, and so on, until transfer of the data class is complete.
Question: If I check the data verification box, what happens?
Answer: The data verification process compares the data classes between the source and destination Notification Servers, and if the data classes do not match up, then the source NS data class is marked as "NOT SENT", and the next inventory forward scheduled event will bring that data to the destination. This process does not function as a retry, and, in fact, there is no retry, until the next scheduled forward event.
