Issue/Introduction

Devices in an IP range that should not be contacted by the Data Collectors are being communicated with using ICMP.

Whenever those profiles are run, any devices not responsive and still in the list from previous runs will be queried again.

Environment

All supported Performance Management releases

Resolution

Remove the IP addresses from Discovery Profiles.
