UCMDB Tip: How does the recognition engine identifies a match in the SAI?

The recognition engine takes into account the following file characteristics when matching data in the scan file to the data in the library (zsai file):

  • File Name
  • File Size
  • File Signature (checksum of first 8KB of the file)
  • File Type (executable type)
  • Version Data (file header information)
  • OS Installed String (this is the info from Add/Remove programs  - on Windows only for fine tuning)
  • OS Package Manager info (Publisher, Application Name, Version, other properties), Relationship between packages and installed files
