Custom Apps running on the Network

Say you have a custom application, or a 3rd Party application running on the network, with TCP/UDP ports unknown to MARS.

When an incident is created for whatever reason, and you click on the port information, you will get a blank screen.

Ok, so how do we tell MARS a bit more about the ports in use on our network? Well by simply defining a service.

If we go into Management and then Service Management, we can add the particular service to our MARS box....

And once Activated, when ever we see that particular port again, and query that on the MARS box, we get that little bit of useful information back.

Great for when you may have multiple admins, who dont necessarily know the full extent of applications running on the network.
