Overview

If it is not possible to profile an IT environment with outbound Internet connectivity, OneIQ Pulse can be deployed in offline mode. Snapshots exported from OneIQ Pulse can be uploaded using a command-line OneIQ Pulse Uploader tool.

Export snapshot from OneIQ Pulse

Click the Export button to export a snapshot (.1iq extension) from OneIQ Pulse. Exported snapshots are incremental and can be uploaded multiple times.

Best Practice: profile the IT environment for at least one day between snapshot exports.
