In IBM Tivoli Storage Area Network Manager, the process detects logical and physical storage resources in the storage environment, and their interconnections (also called topology).

Discovery includes the detection of changes in network topology, such as new and deleted nodes or new and deleted interfaces. See also discovery interval.
