Occasionally, topology elements (software services and the systems that host the services) may need to be removed from the discovered topology.
Note: Edit the application signature that is associated with the software service and system before you remove the element from the topology.

To remove an auto-detected element:


  1. Access the application signature that discovered the auto-detected software service that you want to remove.
  2. Change the System Name or IP Pattern so that the service will not be rediscovered.
  3. Right-click a software service in the Topology Browser.
  4. Click Delete.
    The system removes the software service and the underlying topology created by the discovery of the software service. It also stops monitoring the deleted element(s).
