Ryan asked, "What type of traffic is generated and how is the information categorized or grouped during an inventory forward event?"
Good question, Ryan. Notification Server inventory forwarding uses NSE files to forward data between NS servers. 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.
