During discovery, IP Availability Manager queries every Cisco device (router or switch) in the managed network for EIGRP support.

IP Availability Manager queries a Cisco device’s SNMP agent for an additional MIB object named cpmProcessName, in the Cisco Process MIB, to determine whether the device supports the EIGRP routing protocol. If a process with eigrp in its name exists for the cpmProcessName object, IP Availability Manager adds the device to the EIGRP topology collection set, along with other discovered network objects that are associated with the device.
